It's a mess, It's a start
D5 F5
It's a flowing work of art
A5 G5
Your city, your call
D5 F5
Every crack, every wall
A5 G5
Can't decide, pick a fight
D5 F5
Get your head if it's upright
A5 G5
You can sing till you drop
D5 F5
Causes the fun just never stops

Chorus:
A
I love this city tonight
C D
I love this city always
A
It bares its teeth like a light
C D
And spits me out after days
A
But we're all gluttons for it
C D
We know it's wrong and it's right
A
For every time it's been hit
C A
Take back the city tonight

One perfect partner, one eternal kiss

Take back the city for yourself tonight

I'll take back the city for me
A7sus4 A6sus4 Asus2
