Hundred Mile High City
So I said I'm on the roam so I need a car And I know that I'm getting alive And I say I got faith and a season And I say that's where I'm going to [Chorus] I get a need and I'm wanting to please it I got a face and I'm wanting to feel it The more I feel is the more that I need it The more I need is the less I believe it Well I want a good love by my side Keep on getting out of love and my pride And I know I keep hurting my love yeah But I know it ain't killing [Chorus] So I said I'm on the roam so I need a car And I know that I'm staying alive And I know that my faith is a season And I say that's where I'm living [Chorus: x2]
