Ben & Ellen Harper – City Of Dreams lyrics

Day breaks over the city of my childhood
Daybreak over the city I called home
Where the sage met the sea and the groves were sweet and green
It's a city that lives only in my dreams

The groves where we played when we were children
The groves where we fooled around as teens
Those green groves are paved from la to santa fe
That city lives only in my dreams

Landmarks lost to parking lots in the city I called home
Looking back I see what used to be
Now freeways crawl though the suburban sprawl
As far as the eye can see
And the city lives only in my dreams

Twilight shades the valley of my memory
When citrus groves still perfumed the sky
But I guess those orange blossoms weren't so special after all
Now it's a city of days gone by

Landmarks lost to parking lots in the city I called home
Looking back I see what used to be
Now freeways crawl through the suburban sprawl
As far as the eye can see
And the city lives only in my dreams
