City lights at night

San Francisco, CA

 

I don't know why but I like this in b/w.

 

Turn off the lights

 

 

NOTE:

I simply processed this using a LightRoom 2.x preset called "B&W Low Contrast. "

 

 

Lyrics for this song: Kaskade - Empty Streets (HD MUSICVIDEO)

 

the city feels clean this time of night just empty streets

and me walking home to clear my head

 

i know it came as no surprise

 

i'm affected more than i had guessed on what was said

 

if the smile's not meant to be, if the heart's not ready to open

 

if we make it i won't see it's broken

 

if the smile's not meant to be, if the heart's not ready to open

 

if we make it i won't see how it's broken

 

it's the quiet time before the dawn and i'm half past making sense of it, was i wrong?

 

should i claim to give it all ** in a world where not much ever seems to last long

 

if the smile's not meant to be, if the heart's not ready to open

 

if we make it i won't see it's broken if the smile's not meant to be,

 

if the heart's not ready to open if we make it i won't

 

see how it's broken

how it's broken (3x) (repeats)

(repeats) if the smile's not meant to be, if the heart's not ready to open

 

if we make it i won't see it's broken

 

if the smile's not meant to be, if the heart's not ready to open

 

if we make it i won't see how it's broken

how it's broken (repeats)
