This City

Let’s break free
on this night and roam
with secrets from heaven
despite the gutter.

While the city slips
into scenes so surreal
lamps will take us
to places we belong.

We’ll catch time
as souls beckon
swirl around
waking our minds
and our plans.

We’ll race with the tempo
see how it blends
as everything collides
and all between the towers
cars will rage
and you know me
I’ll stay with you
and we’ll go
into another dawn
with neon still
around our faces.
