The City Below

from by Fforte Adore

lyrics

Lamplight brings a gentle glow
to the quiet city below
where occasional headlights flash like eyes
or tiny, flickering fireflies

people drift by like schools of fish
companionship a worn out wish
left behind in old park benches
carvings buried in love's lost trenches

storelights shut down
life comes to close in a quiet town
and we pack our things and go

and the only way to grow
is when you come to know
that somebody somewhere is waiting for you to care

and if you want to fly
don't ever lose the sky
don't let a cold stare catch you unaware

under bridges are spraypaint tributes
where rocks crumble under society's roots
and in the slums a church's steeple
is a beacon of hope for god's lost people

a serene park is natures answer
to filthy streets and drunken dancers
a place where we can run and hide
from the subway rails that we would ride

and the only way to grow
is when you come to know
that somebody somewhere is waiting for you to care

and if you want to fly
don't ever lose the sky
don't let a cold stare catch you unaware
