Keane — Neon River lyrics

Well you were happy where you were,
But that girl she reeled you in,
This town was never good enough
Cause she was gonna see everything.

And if you ever spoke of love,
She just smiled and put you down
Cause she was making other plans,
She had a vision of light and sound.

She said, "The neon on the river will light my way.
And everything that we've been dreaming of, we'll make it real one day.
So save your money, pack your bag,
We better run before we disappear. "
She took the train into the city, but you're still here.

You hear a song that takes you back
To some long forgotten night,
And friends who said they had your back,
But they just turned and ran and let you fight.

And on the bowling alley wall,
You used all your smartest lines,
But they've been painted over now
Looks like you're gonna get left behind.

She said, "The neon on the river will light my way.
And all the things that we've been dreaming of, we'll make them real one
Day.
So save your money, pack your bag,
I wanna run with you on Stanford Hill. "
She took the train into the city, but you stood still.

You stood still above the track
You knew as you watched her go, that she was never coming back.
You stopped at places that you know,
You said you were scared of heights and that you didn't want to go
Where everyone else goes.

She said, "The neon on the river will light my way.
And everything that we've been dreaming of, we'll make it real one day.
So save your money, pack your bag,
We better run before we disappear. "
She took the train into the city, but you're still here.
She took the train into the city, but you're still here.
