City Born

 

Delve me into a heartbeat
Held within cities of light
Busy sounds
Running by
Dazzling radiance
Flashing on high
Breaths of hello
Turning into good bye

Natives rush on by
Going to their busy lives
City Born…
City Bred…

Feel the excitement…
Feel the heat…
Don’t step away
Don’t miss a beat

Illuminating an inner soul
Cascaded by its outside glow
Hustle and bustle
Feel its pulse
Feel its vibration
Flowing in a flow

Located in a world
Left in an excitement
A guitar man
Plays a woeful tune
… Coins gently drop
As heavens angels swoon

Three card Monty hustlers
Hoodwink and astound
Passers on by
Moving in a blink
Of an eye

Glamorous people
Made up in style
Fashion oozing
In the latest façade
Upon the streets
Living a street arcade

Street vendors
Sell their wares
Two bits
Three bits
A selling blitz

Feel the excitement…
Feel the heat…
Don’t step away
Don’t miss a beat

Natives rush on by
Going to their busy lives
City Born…
City Bred…

Delve me into a heartbeat
Held within cities of light
Busy sounds
Running by
Dazzling radiance
Flashing on high
A breath of hello
Turning into good bye
