TEKSTEN PER JAAR  >  I AM THE CITY


1982:
Burning my bridges - Niet afgemaakt
Cassandra
Every good man - Early Heaven help my heart: Chess - Niet afgemaakt
I am the city
Just like that - Niet afgemaakt
The day before you came
Under attack
You owe me one

Afdrukken I am the city
Agnetha, Frida Coming through a cloud you're looking at me from above
And I'm a revelation spreading out before your eyes
And you find me beautiful and irresistable
A giant creature that forever seems to grow in size
And you feel a strange attraction
Ooh-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo
The air is vibrant and electrified
Welcome to me, here I am
My arms are open wide
Somewhere in the middle of the never ending noise
There is the fast and steady rhythm of a heart that beats
And a million voices crammed into a single voice
And you can hear it in the glamour of the crowded streets
People come and take their chances
Ooh-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo
Sometimes you win sometimes you lose a lot
Come, make your own contribution
To this melting pot
I'm the street you walk, the language you talk
I am the city
The skyline is me and the energy
I am the city
The famous hotels and the cocktail bars
And the funny smells and the turmoil of cars
And the people, the air that you're breathing is me
Yes I am the city, you let me be
People feed me with their lives, I have a hungry soul
And they all worship me and pay their homage day and night
Every day I hear a lot of tired shuffling feet
But come tonight, they will be dancing in the neon light
Dazzled by the crazy magic
Ooh-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo
They're dragging pieces of the fatted calf
And in the wind if you listen hard
You'll hear me laugh
I'm the street you walk, the language you talk
I am the city
The skyline is me and the energy
I am the city
The famous hotels and the cocktail bars
And the funny smells and the turmoil of cars
And the people, the parks and the squares that you see
All the sounds that you hear and the air that you're breathing is me
Yes I am the city, you let me be
I am the city, you let me be
I am the city
The famous hotels and the cocktail bars
And the funny smells and the turmoil of cars
And the people, the air that you're breathing is me
( Coming through a cloud you're looking at me from above
And I'm a revelation spreading out before your eyes )
I'm the street you walk, the language you talk
I am the city
Yes I am the city, you let me be
( And you find me beautiful and irresistable
A giant creature that forever seems to grow in size )
The skyline is me and the energy
I am the city
( Somewhere in the middle of the never ending noise
There is the fast and steady rhythm of a heart that beats )
I'm the street you walk, the language you talk
I am the city
Yes I am the city, you let me be
( And a million voices crammed into a single voice
And you can hear it in the glamour of the crowded streets )
The skyline is me and the energy
I am the city
