Cities as a Dream

<– Back to Lyrics

And what a good-looking horse
They threw off that house
Right around the block
From where I once was born so long ago

Glossy suits, that TV crew, the children too
Everyone around came down just to say that we were there
By midnight we’re all home, the moon as big as any billboard
Sounding sleep for almost everyone…

Was it just as it was just yesterday?
Was it just as it was just yesterday?
Was it just this way?

The cities are asleep, the cities as a dream
One and one the crowd it goes
Mouths moving always no one I know
And I would laugh if I was told I could
I’d cry in perfect privacy if I’d only understood…

What was once good and golden, not stolen?
You see the trouble just might be
Everyone caught in the same song…
Stalled by a moment’s breeze

Was it just as it was just yesterday?
Was it just as it was just yesterday?

And what a good-looking man
They threw off that house
And how about that lady now
With her child close to her chest
As everyone’s shouts, “She’s got to be next!”
Right around the block from where I once was born…
So long ago, so long, so long ago
This life we once thought we knew

Was it just as it was just yesterday?
Was it just as it was just yesterday?
