"Once upon a time, it was paradise / Once upon a time, I was paralyzed / Think I'm gonna miss these harbor lights / But it's time to let it go / Once upon a time, it was made for us  / Woke up one day, it had turned to dust / Baby, we were found, but now we're lost / So it's time to let it go," the lyrics read.

"I want my house in the hills / Don't want the whiskey and pills," the song continues. "So won't you slide away / Back to the ocean, I'll go back to the city lights."
