I stormed in the bar and said, "I need a whiskey" And the glass in my hand never stood a chance I stormed out the bar a mere three hours later I guess I never had the nerve to dance But we've got time You bid your adieu to the soul of the city And we both fell from those wuthered lonesome heights As I insisted your soul meet my body You said instead, "Let's use those narrow stairs tonight" Back at the bar we both made our excuses Yours was I wasn't tall enough to ride Mine was you looked too good to undress you But I'm still thinking about the red dress so that was a lie And we've got time You bid your adieu to the soul of the city And we both fell from those wuthered lonesome heights As I insisted your soul meet my body You said instead, "Let's use those narrow stairs tonight" I woke up with my mind on the matter I’m taken back to the day at the lake It went down at the stroke of 1 AM And I pray to my brain your blood to take So we've got time You bid your adieu to the soul of the city And we both fell from those wuthered lonesome heights As I insisted your soul meet my body You said instead, "Let's use those narrow stairs tonight" And I was a stone on a string while you were taking flight

I said, "Always take me with you" But she kicked me right on off that bus I crawled four blocks back to apathy And I smiled 'cause it's a long, long way back home And back at 3rd and Washington I finally got my feet back on the ground I've found my moment of clarity And I'd walk across the USA alone Just for another day that I could spend with her She's a million miles away But she still means my whole world Yeah, I'd traumatize the west coast every time Always, the faith she placed inside of me All night, the heart I placed inside of her Some day our broken hearts will mend together Every day I yearn that it'll be before I die Now I stand somewhere in the architecture Lost in this urban paradise Of women too snide to stand beside me Drinking from their endless coffee cups And back at Newark and Hudson I finally answered my own questions Always, the faith she placed inside of me All night, the heart I placed inside of her Some day our broken hearts will mend together Every day I yearn that it'll be before I die She takes out her violin and she begins to play a tune Something back from '65 back when we all felt more alive It's the last time for The Last Time (Back at Third and Washington, I finally got my feet back on the ground) (Back at Newark and Hudson, I finally answered my own questions now)

about

"Soul of the City" is the first single from our upcoming debut full-length album, "Vs. the Swingers and the Saints." It's about drinking whiskey and debating which Death Cab for Cutie record is better, and not necessarily in that order.

The B-Side is a full band version of a previously released acoustic track "Newark and Hudson." It's a song about finding love in New Jersey (which actually does happen, believe it or not).
