Back to the city


I came back to the city
Still searching for that dream
I wondered then if she was still inside me
All I found was emptiness
The streets I knew were gone and yes
All the changes that were made were made without me

The place I called my home then
Had grown up like a child
But I was never one that was for breading
I wandered down a lane Iíd loved
It seemed now that there was no love
Just boxes waiting for the ones not leaving

Donít go back, thinking of days gone by
All your thoughts should be for tomorrow
Yes hold on tight, to the love you hold inside
And dream, yes dream

The neon that I once adored
Now shines on faces new
Sheís angry that I left her for another
And though I have good memories
I also carry scars
Thereís danger when the city is your lover

Donít go back, looking for yesterday
All your thoughts should be for tomorrow
Yes hold on tight, to the love you hold inside
And dream, just dream
Ah dream, yeah dream

Baby you dreamed that day that you went away
And wondered should you go or stay
And you dreamed of love and a world a new
And you found that all your dreams came true
Cause you dreamed, baby you dreamed

I came back to the city
But I only found a broken dream
I know that now today and thereís tomorrow
But all the memories stay inside
Pleasant thoughts of days gone by
The pain is gone there is no need for sorrow

So donít go back, thinking of days gone by
All your thoughts should be for tomorrow
Yes hold on tight, to the love you hold inside
And dream, yes dream, Ah dream, come on dream, baby dream, dream.
