City of dreams Lyrics by Talking Heads

 

City of dreams by Talking Heads


Near where you are standing the Dinosaurs did a dance
The Indians told a story how it has come to pass
The Indians had a legend, the Spaniards lived for gold
White men came and killed them but they haven’t really gone
We live in the city of dreams
We drive on this highway of fire
Should we awake and find it gone, remember this our favorite town
From Germany and Europe and southern USA
They made this little town here that we live in to this day
The children of the white man saw Indians on TV
And heard about the legend how their city was a dream
We live in the city of dreams
We drive on this highway of fire
Should we awake and find it gone, remember this our favorite town
The Civil War is over and World War 1 & 2
If we can live together, the dream it might come true
Underneath the concrete the dream is still alive
A hundred million lifetimes a world that never dies
We live in the city of dreams
We drive on this highway of fire
Should we awake and find it gone, remember this our favorite town
We live in the city of dreams
We drive on this highway of fire
Should we awake and find it gone, remember this our favorite town
