Lyrics to song City Song by Joshua Payne

Go ahead and walk away from me
I can see what's going down
Dear boy, before you go
You had better hear me out

I've seen her face, I know her name
Comin' on to deal her drug
Like a summer field in flame
She's gonna light you up
But you think you're in love

I would give you every tear
But your destiny holds true
If I cried a lifetime still
This river would not save you
No, it would not save you

Something in you rages on
You know I don't believe the lies
Son, you're bound to prove me wrong
But I see doubt there in your eyes

I would give you every tear
But your destiny holds true
If I cried a lifetime
Still this river would not save you
No, it would not save you

I've been in the city for forty days
I recognize the devil behind
that pretty face of hers
There's no mistaking this road you're taking
Will only break you down

There's nothing more that I can say
You're gonna go and prove me wrong anyway
Remember it's you that walked away
I will not compromise

Virgin Mother, light the way
All my weary breath is flown
I ran out of time to weep
A thousand, thousand sighs ago

Go ahead and walk away from here
