about

A song about Denver, our home.

lyrics

Oh, my city!
My Queen City!
Won't you shelter me?
Lift my soul.
Oh, my city!
My Queen City!
Won't you cradle me?
Sing me home.
I have claimed you as my own.

What the fuck am I doing here holding on to a warm beer
Staring holes into the floor?
You were my saving Truth,
You're just a folly of my youth
But I believed in the infinity of your view
When the Flatlands were all I knew.

And if I miss the riverside, it's just an attempt to hide
Only a tribute to my vanity.
You were my first and last
A simple product of my past
But I swear alligence, in sincerity
You are the very blood flowing through me.

You have made me
You tested and saved me
Carved your name into my bones.
If I ever curse your name, know I love you all the same
Queen City, you will always be
Beautiful to me.

Guess you'd say I'm doing well
Hovering just outside of hell
Thinking hard on the state of things.
You could say I'm doing fine
I'm making good use of God's good time
And who know what tomorrow brings?
Who knows anything?

You have made me
You tested and saved me
Carved your name into my bones.
If I ever curse your name, know I love you all the same
Queen City, you will always be
Beautiful to me.

Oh, my city!
My Queen City!
Won't you shelter me?
Lift my soul.
Oh, my city!
My Queen City!
Won't you cradle me?
Sing me home.
I have claimed you as my own.
