Lyrics: 

You can’t temper the call of the city
I always knew you’d stumble back sometime

Your love is boldly broadcast when you’re sending out your signals
I hope you know that you were always mine

I didn’t have high hopes
Your spirit knew where it was from
I didn’t have a chance
It’s citrus sweet to have you gone
I’ve given up on waiting
Life goes on

I’ve given up on waiting
Life goes on

I swung towards the sky but you were always bloody grounded
Meeting in the middle seemed to be a decent start

And then you took your shady side, and now I’m in the light
Wondering why we didn’t fall apart

I didn’t have bad words to say
We were and are still strong
I didn’t need the chance
It’s citrus sweet to have you gone
I’ve given up on waiting
Life goes on

I’ve given up on waiting
Life goes on

The repeated chorus (?) of "I've given up waiting/Life goes on" has a lovely determination and force to it. Also fond of the line "It's citrus sweet to have you gone". Nice writing. Hope you can add music to it!
