District Sleeps Alone Tonight - Birdy

Smeared black ink
Your face is all sweat
And I'm barely listening
To last demands
I'm staring at the asphalt wondering
What's buried underneath
Where I am, where I am

I'll wear my badge
A vinyl sticker with big block letters
Adherent to my chest
That tells your new friends
I am a visitor here: I am not permanent
And the only thing keeping me dry is
Where I am (You seem so out of context in this gaudy apartment complex)
Where I am (A stranger with your door key explaining
that I'm just visiting)
Where I am (And I am finally seeing why I was the one worth leaving)
(Why I was the one worth leaving)

D.C. sleeps alone tonight
D.C. sleeps alone tonight

Where I am (You seem so out of context in this gaudy apartment complex)
Where I am (A stranger with your door key explaining
that I'm just visiting)
Where I am (And I am finally seeing why I was the one worth leaving)
(Why I was the one worth leaving)

The district sleeps alone tonight
After the bars turn out their lights
And leave the autos swerving
Into the loneliest evening
And I am finally seeing
Why I was the one worth leaving
Why I was the one worth leaving
Why I was the one worth leaving
Why I was the one worth leaving
