City of Dreams - Bill Fay

I'm a street sweeper in your city of dreams
Yeah, I'm a street sweeper in your city of dreams
Sweepin up the paper cups between the limousines
Street sweeper in your city of dreams
Thousands of windows, I'm scared of what I see
Thousands of windows, I'm so scared of what I see
People wired up to telephones, plugged into tv screens
Thousands of windows, I'm so scared of what I see
Lookin at the sky above, higher than these neon names
I'm lookin at the sky above, higher than these neon names
You can't buy and sell the clouds, they aint among the commodities we trade
Lookin at the sky above, higher than these neon names
I'm waitin for the city of god
Yeah, I'm waitin for the city of god
When what is will be what was
Waitin for the city of god
I'm a street sweeper in your city of dreams
Yeah, I'm a street sweeper in your city of dreams
Sweepin up the paper cups between the limousines
Street sweeper in your city of dreams
