Stuart Davis – City Is A Church lyrics

Drive into this city, meet me in the street
Where the pavement and the romance meet
I found my savior on the Mississippi banks
And the movement of it's water gives me strength

In the middle of the millions
We can end a lifetime search
And I'm on my knees tonight
Because this city is a church

Out there in the suburbs the truth is so less real
You breath and breath but never feel
But on the West Bank our secrets safe to keep
And we'll dig into that truth and we'll dig deep

If your spirit seems to fail you
And you need to shed the hurt
You can heal your spirit here
Because this city is a church

I know your surface wind is bleeding
A plastic shell is no real gift
But baby don't you see you're needing me
And God knows these empty eyes could use the lift

I see suspicion in your eyes
To swallow words you need the proof
It takes two of us to climb the stairwell in our minds
Before we get to live up on the roof

When I'm not pure and the innocence is gone
I''m baptized in your image every dawn
You think it's too good to be true
The beauty stuns me too
But may God strike me down if this is wrong

In the middle of the millions
We can end the lifetime search
And I'll be on my knees tonight
Because this city is a church

If your spirit seems to fail you
You can heal your spirit here
'cause this city is a church
