Skyscraper Soul (Jim Cuddy)

Everyone knows it, try not to show it, This city can bring you down I'm a believer some days are hard, but I couldn't leave this town I got a skyscraper soul Like a flower that comes where the sun never goes Skyscraper soul Filling my heart where there once was a hole Look out my window Watching the sun go down On the crowds below I know the struggle, Weaving through trouble Life can be hard, I know I got a skyscraper soul There's mud in my veins and there's steel in my bones Skyscraper soul Building it all up from water and stones Look through the market stalls Over broken walls To this hollowed ground Looks are deceiving There's a heart beating Here in this battered town Cause I got a skyscraper soul Like a flower that comes where the sun never goes Skyscraper soul Filling it all up with water and stones I've got a skyscraper soul There's mud in my veins and there's steel in my bones Skyscraper soul Brushing the rust off and losing control
