Lyrics:

My heart beats against clustered walls of concrete
Call out for the cab
Second glances
Rain over my mind

As all the lights turn red to green
The streetlights seem to speak
There’s nothing left here
For you to stay behind

My palm grips the worn out door,
Pick up the soles of my shoes
Step right inside got nothing to loose
Lift a heavy sigh as my breath fogs up the glass

Eyes drop to the wheels
Against this pavement floor
They seem to have heard this old story before
So they drive into the night, carry one soul more

I’ve roamed wherever I could
Gone wherever I can
But the winds blowing far too cold
To keep standing where I stand
Lived and learned, loved and lost
Understood I might not understand
I’ve lived every corner on these streets
Taxi, its time to leave
Taxi, its time to leave

I’ve crossed every bridge and gate, every fire escape
Still I’m grounded under my feet
Cause when I know where I’m going, its time to get going
Before I crash at that glass ceiling

When my skin hits its shards, it leaves scars worse
Than when I first fell and scraped my knees
It’s hard to move from concrete my heart’s a part of
But I’m already in too deep

My palm grips the worn out door,
Pick up the soles of my shoes
Step right inside got nothing to loose
Lift a heavy sigh as my breath fogs up the glass

Eyes drop to the wheels
Against this pavement floor
They seem to have heard this old story before
So they drive into the night, carry one soul more

I’ve roamed wherever I could
Gone wherever I can
But the winds blowing far too cold
To keep standing where I stand
Lived and learned, loved and lost
Understood I might not understand
I’ve lived every corner on these streets
Taxi, its time to leave
Taxi, its time to leave

I’ve taken every ride on every subway train
Stood in a crowd, a million faces, didn’t even know one name
The more things stay the same, the more they need to change
I’ve lived every corner on these streets

My palm grips the worn out door,
Pick up the soles of my shoes
Step right inside got nothing to loose
Lift a heavy sigh as my breath fogs up the glass

Eyes drop to the wheels
Against this pavement floor
They seem to have heard this old story before
So they drive into the night, carry one soul more

I’ve roamed wherever I could
Gone wherever I can
But the winds blowing far too cold
To keep standing where I stand
Lived and learned, loved and lost
Understood I might not understand
I’ve lived every corner on these streets
Taxi, its time to leave
Taxi, its time to leave
