Speaking in tongues
Out in the streets tonight
Don’t fight
I’m not short on shelter
I gave made up names to people’s faces I saw
Once or twice in my hometown
They all wish you to know where I’ve been
Well, I said

(Hey, hey) “Can I talk to you?” but no one has replied
(Hey, hey) “Seems crowded here, but empty not too deep on the inside”
(Hey, hey) “Mr. Waiter, won’t you please come and fill this cup?”
Even the greatest dream turns bittersweet
Disappointment wakes you up

In life
City Life, oh no
My…life
City Life, oh no

Scared to look up
The spires want to lure me
Into the sky
So glad that I was lucid, and took control
To lead you ‘cross this bridge
And deep beneath, where water flows, I
Missed your lips, but held you close, I said
