I Am The City lyrics

Coming through a cloud and looking at me from above
And i'm a revelation spreading out before your eyes.
And you find me beautiful and irresistible
A giant creature that forever seems to grow in size.
And you feel a strange attraction, the air is vibrant and electrified.
Welcome to me, here i am, my arms are open wide.

Somewhere in the middle of the never-ending noise
There is a pulse, a steady rhythm of a heart that beats.
And a million voices blend into a single voice
And you can hear it in the clamour of the crowded streets.
People come and take their chances,
Sometimes you win sometimes you lose a lot
Come, make your own contribution to this melting pot.

On the street you walk, the language you talk
I am the city.
The skyline is me, and the energy
I am the city.

The famous hotels and the cocktail bars
And the funny smells, and the turmoil of cars.
And the people, the air that you're breathing is me
Yes i am the city, you let me be.

People greet me with their lives, i am a hungry soul
And they all worship me and pay their homage, day and night.
Every day i meet a lot of tired shopping people
But come tonight they will be dancing in the neon lights.
Dazzled by the crazy music, they're grabbing pieces of the fatted calf.
And in the wind, if you listen hard, you'll hear me laugh.

On the street you walk, the language you talk
I am the city.
The skyline is me, and the energy
I am the city.

The famous hotels and the cocktail bars
And the funny smells, and the turmoil of cars.
And the people, the parks and the squares that you see
All the sounds that you hear and the air that you're breathing is me.
Yes i am the city, you let me be.
I am the city, you let me be.

I am the city
The famous hotels and the cocktail bars
And the funny smells, and the turmoil of cars.
And the people, the air that you're breathing is me

Coming through a cloud and looking at me from above
And i'm a revelation spreading out before your eyes.
And you find me beautiful and irresistible
A giant creature that forever seems to grow in size.

Somewhere in the middle of the never-ending noise
There is a pulse, a steady rhythm of a heart that beats.
And a million voices blend into a single voice
And you can hear it in the clamour of the crowded streets.
