sometimes you’re listening to a traffic soundtrack
but i only want to listen to you.
sometimes i think of skyscrapers and of living closer to the sky.
actually, i’m thinking of living closer to you.
you are hello, city lights.
i am hello, cricket nights.
and hello, i miss you.
you look through the fan of your window air-conditioner
and i'm seeing stars and fireflies from my porch.
i would trade them for your smile.
just one.
i'd trade them all for just one.
i’d live through busy corners and criss-crossed streets
just for you.
just so you know.
i'll wake up at three in the morning to the sound of cars
so i can wake up to you.
sometimes you take my breath away.
