2. Official Jeff Bhasker vs. Tyler Johnson Remix

It’s taking us downtown
You’re watching me, watching me, watching me go
But I never listen
No, I never let you know

Now we’re heading uptown
Is there something or nothing you wanted to say
Do you want me to go now?
‘Cause baby I want to stay
Stay…

What you need to know
Is to try and let it go, let it go
What you need to find
Is someone who never will let you go
Ohhhhhhhh sunshine & city lights
Will guide you home
Ohhhhhhhh yeah you gotta know
That I’ll never let you go

Now were stuck in midtown
Surrounded by people & nothing but sound
And were going nowhere
And we are the lost & found

We’re all over this town
Is there something or nothing you wanted to say
‘Cause I need to go now
Do you want me st stay?
I said stay…

What  you need to know
Is to try to let it go, let it go
What you need to find
Is someone that never will let you go
Ohhhhhhhh sunshine & city lights
Will guide you home
Ohhhhhhh, yeah you gotta know
That I’ll never let you go

Sunshine & city lights
Ohhhhhhh, ohhhhhhhh
Sunshine & city lights

What you need to know
Is to try and let it go, let it go
What you need to find
Is someone who never will let you go
What you need to know

Is to try to let it go, let it go
What you need to find
Is someone who never will let you go
Ohhhhhhh, sunshine & city lights
Will guide you home
Ohhhhhhhh, yeah you gotta know
That I’ll never let you go
