You fill that empty space
And you let me in
You let me breathe
No I can't let go, need you so
You're the heartbeat of my city

I look west as I lay my city to rest
Wonder how something so ugly can be the prettiest
There's no dusty concrete,
No graffiti on the street
No demands, no promises to keep
Only dying light to guide the wander of my feet
Orange, color of skies before it dies
The brief moment between two worlds as they collide
Stand as the witness of something equal to all
And it hits hard,
It's hard to understand
Soon it all catches up with you
Orange merges into blue
As the street lights go on
And the night becomes another song for someone else to
Sing
It goes on and on and on, on and on
On and on and on, on and on
On and on and on, on and on
Energy turns into paths of calm

You fill that empty space
And you let me in
You let me breathe
No I can't let go, need you so
You're the heartbeat of my city

Bus stop 2 A. M., rain pools at my feet
The wet skies, the wet streets and wet eyes
It all fast-forwards though I thought I pushed rewind
Play it over in my head, who said what, when and why
A breath of fresh air after smoke filled rooms
Clear my head, watch the bus leave the curb
Get up the lifeline of streets resuscitates me
Step after step cease to hate what I've been lately
You make things concrete for me
It's less hard to feel pain, even when you're scarred
Gaze at the street lights flicker and consider
How can something free can be so valuable to me
Both born to be rebuilt time after time
As the rain keeps falling my spirits rise
I'll go on and on and on, on and on
Energy turns into paths of calm
