Floating City

Original and similar lyrics
You went away Why did you leave me You know I believed you Nothing explained Where are the answers I know I need you Tell me Is your city paved with gold Is there hunger Do your people grow old Do your governments Have secrets that they've sold Every night I wait Take me away To your floating city By my window at night I see the lights To your floating city Come and take me away I want to play in your Floating city yeah Floating city yeah T.V. turns off Any of us that Say that we've seen you Tell me are we The only planet That can't conceive you Will we be like Atlantis Long ago So assured that we're advanced With what we know That our spirit Never had time to grow Every night I wait Take me away To your floating city By my window at night I see the lights To your floating city Come and take me away I want to play in your Floating city yeah Floating city yeah Is it weak to look for Saviors out in space Little earth she tries so hard To change our ways Sometimes she must get sick Of this place Every night I wait Take me away To your floating city By my window at night I see the lights To your floating city Come and take me away I want to play in your Floating city yeah Floating city yeah

City Lights

AARON CARTER
I turn off the radio All the windows down Still seems like your right here beside me Down every back street There’s a memory Can’t believe the way, I still see your face in everything It won’t stop, no matter where I’m runnin’ You don’t stop, your love just keeps on hauntin’ me I can’t stop, forgetting that it’s over But still I’m never alone Under the city lights, there’s nowhere to get away It’s like nothing is safe for me You keep on chasin’ me Under the city lights, the memories come alive Burning me deep, inside tonight The city lights (city lights) Look for the sunrise, live for the daylight That’s the only time I find that you’re not right on my mind Don’t let the sun go down cause that’s when it happens It’s getting closer, I feel it comin’ tonight It won’t stop, no matter where I’m runnin’ You don’t stop, your love just keeps on hauntin’ me I can’t stop, forgettin’ that it’s over But still I’m never alone Under the city lights, there’s nowhere to get away It’s like nothing is safe for me You keep on chasin’ me Under the city lights, the memories come alive Burning me deep, inside tonight The city lights (Ohhh, city lights) The night time Every night was our time Only live a lifetime, every night The night time Every night was our time Only live a lifetime, lovin’ the night Under the city lights, there’s nowhere to get away It’s like nothing is safe for me You keep on chasin’ me Under the city lights, the memories come alive Burning me deep, inside tonight (Let me go, set me free) The city lights (Ohhh, city lights) (let me go, set me free) The city lights The night time Every night was our time Only live a lifetime, every night The night time Every night was our time Only live a lifetime, lovin’ the night

Honolulu City Lights

Carpenters "Lovelines"
(Keola Beamer) Looking out upon the city lights and the stars above the ocean, Got my ticket for the midnight plane and its not easy to leave again. Took my clothes and put them in the bag; try not to think just yet of leaving. Looking out into the city night and it's not easy to leave again. (Chorus) Each time Honolulu city lights stir up memories in me. Each night Honolulu city lights bring me back again. You are my island sunset; you are my island dream. Put on my shoes and light a cigarette. Wonderin' which of my friends will be here Standin' with their leis around my neck. It's not easy to leave again. (Chorus) Each time Honolulu city lights stir up memories in me. Each night Honolulu city lights bring me back again. Bring me back again.

Scandinavian Skies

BILLY JOEL "The Nylon Curtain"
The sins of Amsterdam were still a recent surprise And we were flying over Scandinavian Skies We climbed towards the sun, we turned and cursed as one We pulled the shades and closed our eyes, eyes The Stockholm city lights were slowly starting to rise And we were strapped against those Scandinavian skies The landing gear came down and touched the Swedish ground And we were all so paralyzed, -----ized, -----yzed On the plane we were mainly sound and lights In the veins, we could play the blues all night The tour of Germany was bleeding into our eyes And we were sailing over Scandinavian skies We had the Midas touch until we met the Dutch And they exhausted our supplies, -----ies, -----ies Who's to pay for this international flight? Who could stay? We were only there for the night We watched the power fall inside the Olso hall While all the cold Norweigians cried, --ied Who could say, what was left and where was right? By the way, I could play the blues all night
