Dirty Old Town
Craig Cardiff Lyrics


Dirty old town, dirty old town
They've got all your little secrets clearly written down
You don't even know, and you can't even see
The butterfly that you're going to be
Oh, the butterfly that we are becoming

And all the roads, and all the miles
Hair goes grey, eyes stay wide
Come to bed, turn out the lights
Fall asleep inside
You're the one
You're the one
You're the one

Hearts grow into hearts until hearts become one
You're the one
You're the one
You're the one
I carry your heart in my heart
Sung with every song

Singing you're the one
Oh, you're the one

Poised with grace in this poisoned place
How you ever manage to keep it off your face
You don't even know, and you can't even see
The butterfly that you're going to be
Oh, the butterfly that we are becoming

Dirty old town, dirty old town
They've got all your little secrets clearly written down
You don't even know, and you can't even see
The butterfly that you're going to be
Oh, the butterfly that we are becoming

'Cause you're the one
You're the one
You're the one
Hearts grow into hearts until hearts become one
You're the one
You're the one
You're the one
I carry your heart in my heart
Sung with every song

Singing you're the one
Oh, you're the one

Dirty old town, dirty old town
I've got all your little problems clearly written down
But you don't even know, and can't even see
All the butterfly that you're going to be
All the butterfly that you are becoming

[Pre-Chorus]
All the roads, all the miles
But hair goes grey, eyes stay wide
Fall into bed, turn off the lights
Fall asleep inside

[Chorus 1]
You're the one, you're the one, you're the one
Hearts grow into hearts until hearts become one
But you're the one, you're the one, you're the one
I carry your heart in my heart, sung with every song
But you're the one, you're the one

[Verse 2]
Poised with grace in this poisoned place
And how you ever manage to keep it off your face
But you don't even know and you can't even see
All the butterfly that you're going to be
All the butterfly that you are becoming

[Verse 3]
Dirty old town, dirty old town
They've got all of your little secrets fairly written down
And you don't even know and you can't even see
All the butterfly that you're going to be
All the butterfly that you are becoming

[Chorus 2]
But you're the one, you're the one, you're the one
Hearts grow into hearts until hearts become one
But you're the one, you're the one, you're the one
I carry your heart in my heart, hearts become one
But you're the one, you're the one, you're the one
Hearts grow into hearts until hearts become one
But you're the one, you're the one, you're the one
I carry your heart in my heart, sung with every song
Fall asleep inside

[Instrumental]

dirty old town, dirty old town,
they've got all your little problems clearly written down.
you don't even know, don't even see
the butterfly that you're going to be,
the butterfly that you are becoming.

all the road, all the miles,
hair goes grey, eyes stay wide.
come to bed, turn off the lights
fall asleep inside of you. you're the one,

you're the one.
hearts grow into hearts until hearts become one.
you're the one, you're the one.
i carry you heart in my heart sung with every song.


poised with grace in this poisoned place.
how you ever manage to keep it off your face.
you don't even know, don't even see
the butterfly that you're going to be,
the butterfly you are becoming.

[i carry your heart with me(i carry it in]
BY E. E. CUMMINGS
i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
