The Midnight - Brooklyn lyrics

[Verse 1]
There's traffic on the bridge
But the skyline shines with a certain light
And I know you're sick of it
But I know a happy hour nearby

[Pre-Chorus]
And there's a possibility
That one day, things'll get better
For the huddled masses in between
The shadows and the stars

[Chorus]
Floating empire
Held up by fraying wire
I'll cover you in winter
Like a blanket by the fire
And when the rent's too high
We'll just buy cheaper wine
And hang on to see if whether
Constellations hold together or not

[Verse 2]
Four years in Brooklyn
And happy birthday, darling
When we feel young again
I'd like to take you dancing

[Pre-Chorus]
'Cause there's a possibility
That one day, things'll get better
For the huddled masses in between
The shadows and the stars
And there's a possibility
That we'll both go down together
Or free ourselves from gravity
And tumble through the dark

[Chorus]
Floating empire
Held up by fraying wire
And I'll cover you in winter
Like a blanket by the fire
And when the rent's too high
We'll just buy cheaper wine
And hang on to see if whether
Constellations hold together or not

[Bridge]
I never placed too much faith in the stars
I never placed too much faith in my heart
But the siren call of the chandelier city
And inch-by-inch, we're breaking apart
As we're rising through the dark
From the sky, I bet the lights look pretty

[Chorus]
Floating empire
Held up by fraying wire
And I will cover you in winter
Like a blanket by the fire
When the rent's too high
We'll just buy cheaper wine
Hang on to see if whether
Constellations hold together or not
Or not
