Won't, won't let this city, won't let this city
Won't, won't let this city, won't let this city
(Won't let this city destroy our love)

Won't, won't let this city, won't let this city
Won't let this city, won't let this city
(Won't let this city destroy our love)
Won't let this city, won't let this city

You know I, I hate to see you cry
But when you open up to me
I take you in my arms
Wish you the top, top, top, top of the morning

No, I don't care 'bout cash, no careers
Your losses or your arrears
I take you in my arms
Wish you the top, top, top, top of the morning

I won't let this city destroy our love
Won't let this city destroy my love
Won't let no mistake take the roof from off our heads
No, I won't let this city destroy us
Won't let this city destroy our love

Won't let this city, won't let this city
Won't, won't let this city, won't let this city
Won't, won't let this city, won't let this city
Won't, won't let this city, won't let this city

Talk to me, let me shed some light on your dark
Help you see, how darling you've left your mark
On my life and the beautiful around
When I see you, top, top, top, top of the morning

I was lost until that night we kissed
Given up on life, so darling, know this
You're worth more than how this city lets you down
When I see you, top, top, top, top of the morning

I won't let this city destroy our love
Won't let this city destroy my love
Won't let no mistake take the roof from off our heads
No, I won't let this city destroy us
Won't let this city destroy our love

I won't let this city destroy our love
Won't let this city destroy my love
Won't let no mistake take the roof from off our heads
No, I won't let this city destroy us
Won't let this city destroy our love

Won't let this city, won't, won't let this city
Won't let this city, won't, won't let this city
Won't let this city, won't, won't let this city
Won't let this city, won't, won't let this city

No, no, no, no
Not about the debts you made, the car we never had
The house we never owned, darling, don't look so sad
It's about that day we kissed up by Niagara Falls
It's about the keys, the keys, the keys to my heart you hold

Won't, won't let this city, won't let this city
Won't, won't let this city, won't let this city
(The top, top, top, top of the morning)

Won't let this city destroy our love
Won't let this city destroy my love
Won't let no mistake take the roof from off our heads
I won't let this city destroy us
Won't let this city destroy our love

Won't let the city destroy our love
Won't let the city destroy my love
Won't let no mistake take the roof from off our heads
No, I won't let this city destroy us
Won't let the city destroy our love

Won't let the city, won't, won't let the city
Won't let the city, won't, won't let the city
Won't let no mistake take the roof from off our heads
No, I won't let this city destroy us
Won't let the city destroy our love
