CITY OF LIGHTS

Music & Lyrics by Kareem Salama

V1
We were looking; looking for the city of lights
Took a left when we should've; should've gone right
We were just a bunch of young soul seekers looking for the clues that would lead us
To the keys that play the tune that open the door
We climbed the trees but the limbs kept breaking
We started building but the earth kept shaking
We looked high and low for the right chord
Heard voices telling us give up the chase
Said never we got nothing else to do today

Chorus
We want to go yeah go to the city of lights – oh oh wa oh oh oh wa oh
Where the moon keeps the darkness away at night – oh oh wa oh oh oh wa oh
We want to go yeah go to the city of lights – oh oh wa oh oh oh wa oh
Where the moon keeps the darkness away at night – oh oh wa oh oh oh wa oh

V2
The road was dark and hard so I started to say
Let's take a break and we can try this another day
When in that moment I felt that feeling that gripped me tight and I quit breathing
We all knew there was nowhere else to go
But forward even if we had to lose it all cause what's it all without this cause
The good love behind all the yeses and no
Heard voices telling us keep up the chase
Said never stop and we'll be waiting at the end of the day

Chorus

V3
We ran harder and harder but our steps got softer and softer
I started smiling cause I felt like I was flying into the sky
We looked around and broke out in laughter. My friend said I feel ecstatic
The pain in my legs is fading away, fading away, fading away, fading away
Now the light was all I could see in the faces of my friends and me
And I looked back and saw that there was no path at all
Heard voices telling us welcome boys and girls

Now you know the secret so share it with the whole wide world

Chorus
