Carole King

Carole King - City Streets

rate me

River wind is icy

Chills run through my bones

Tides of life are ebbing out

Between the cobblestones

The streets are on fire

With the burning sunrise

And over the water I look in vain

For love in someone's eyes

Oh, city streets

The stories that they tell

Oh, city streets

They can be heaven, they can be hell

Winter-colored morning

Gray and dirty brown

Reflecting the mood I'm in

Despair is all around

I long for sweet oblivion

To take me from my pain

Maybe bring me dreams of hope and faith

So I can break this chain

Oh, city streets

The stories that they tell

Oh, city streets

They can be heaven, they can be hell

Lovers with their arms entwined

Silhouettes against the light

A warm bed is waiting as they head home

After staying up all night

For them the city is magic

That's all they've ever known

I wish I could find the magic

But I'm scared and I'm feeling so alone

Oh, city streets

The stories that they tell

Oh, city streets

They can be heaven, they can be hell

Oh, city streets

The stories they have known

Oh, city streets, city streets, city streets
