City of Dreams

 

Lyrics

Far and wide I wandered 

In search of my City of Dreams

I crossed the Browney River

By its gladsome, bubbling streams

I plucked a flower at Maiden's Bower

And its yellows and its creams

Shone like gold and silver

As I reached my City of Dreams


Footsore and weary

I entered the City of Dreams

But a spring was in my step

I was full of hopes and schemes

I heard voices on the breeze

Their whispers rose to screams

"Grab every opportunity

In this City of Dreams"


Oh City of Dreams

May your colours and your themes

Fill the canvas of my mind

Layered in endless seams

City of Dreams


I've come here with nothing

I've got nothing left to lose

So take me as I am

It's up to you to choose

I've got so much to offer

How can you refuse?


The spirit of Cuthbert guiding me

Through this City of Dreams

To the many questions in my heart

He answered me in reams

I entered the Cathedral

And beneath its mighty beams

I gave thanks for my deliverance

Unto the City of Dreams


Oh City of Dreams

Where sunlight gleams

Upon those who through struggle

Perseverance redeems

City of Dreams


Oh City of Dreams

May your colours and your themes

Fill the canvas of my mind

Layered in endless seams

City of Dreams
