Let Me Live In Your City (Work In Progress) « See All Songs

Lyrics:

You’ve got the cool water
When the fever runs high
You got the look of lovelight in your eyes
I was in crazy motion
Til’ you calmed me down
It took a little time
But you calmed me down

Let me live in your city
The river’s so pretty, the air is so fine
Let me room where I can lay over
I’m just a traveler eating up travelin’ time
I’m just a traveler eating up
My travelin’ time

They’ve got a wall in China
It’s a thousand miles long
To keep out the foreigners
They made it strong
And I got a wall around me
You can’t even see
Took a little time
To get to me

Let me live in your city
The river’s so pretty, the air is so fine
Let me room where I can lay over
I’m just a traveler eating up travelin’ time
I’m just a traveler eating up my travelin’ time

Some people never say those words
I love you
It’s not their style to be so bold
Some people never say those words
I love you
But like a child, they’re longing to be told

Let me live in your city
The river’s so pretty, the air is so fine
Let me room where I can lay over
I’m just a traveler eating up travelin’ time
I’m just a traveler eating up
my travelin’ time
