City Lights

Album: The Great Depression (2005)
  • I took a walk down 4th avenue when I saw it
    A red line in the concrete
    Leading somewhere out of sight
    Something compelled me to stop
    So I jumped over the fence
    Started following from what appeared to be
    The trail of a leaking tin can
    Leading into the alley away from the light

    Now this is what needs to be done
    Black light shining in the dark
    Brings out brightness more than in the sun
    Do I dare to stay
    Cause somehow I want to

    Trade love for the city lights
    You chose me to stay
    Trade light for the city love
    You chose me to stay

    So now what if I continue this walk
    The red line is taking me down trashcans lonely street
    Yes the streets have names but the people don't
    Or are they forgotten
    And I'm starting to smell something beautiful
    Though these streets are rotten

    Trade love for the city lights
    You chose me to stay
    Trade light for the city love
    You chose me to stay Writer/s: CHRISTIAN THELL LINDSKOG, MARCUS TOBIAS DAHLSTROEM, SIMON FRANK GRENEHED, TOMAS NILS NAESLUND
