Video clip

The city called me so i came
It isn't mine to question what it said
I sleep until the point when i'm awake
I walk until there's nothing left to trek
And everyone is looking for an answer
And everyone is waiting for a break
I came and i was bored of it soon after
But i had nowhere to go and so i stayed
I dreamed a lifetime of this place
It seemed an awful thing to waste
Well the morning fills my mouth up with decay
I like it, it reminds me how you taste
Sometimes i feel you rising up behind me like the wind
But i still try to look away
What will you look like when you're old?
(what will you look like when you're old?)
What will i do if i don't know you?
(what will i do if i don't know you?)
I guess that i decided not to ask the day i took the road
Down to the city as it called
Sun making silhouettes of gauze
I don't remember you at all
The city called me and i came
It isn't mine to question why
Sometimes the clouds will rise ahead, i hear your name
It's like a choir in the sky
What will you look like when you're old?
(what will you look like when you're old?)
What will i do if i don't know you?
(what will i do if i don't know you?)
I guess that i decided not to know the day i took the road
Down to the city as it called
Sun making silhouettes of gauze
I don't remember you at all
They pulled a human from my waist
It had your mouth, it had your face
I would have kept it if i'd stayed.
