If I ever had a wish in the whole world
I wouldve listened to my brother when he spoke to me
And I never wouldve played with my conscience
In the fields where I was in their company

But you gave me wings and I used them
I used them, I used them on my youth
And you gave me wings and I used them
I used them, and I wont lose them

Now I've found my feet, count to one, two, three
And Im taking off tonight, now Im free
As I walk my feet on the cold concrete
And I, and I, and I

I can feel my dreams when Im, in my city
I fall on my knees for my, for my city
We grow on every dream in my, in my city
And thats where Ill stay
And thats where Ill stay
In my city

I wandered down the streets in my new town
With the lights blinding and my heart played down
I think I'll get a job, recieve people's thunder
But the folks back home Ill make them proud

But you gave me wings and I used them
I used them, I used them on my youth
Yeah, you gave me wings and I used them
I used them, I dont wanna lose them
I dont wanna lose them

I can feel my dreams when Im in my city
I fall on my knees for my, for my city
We grow on every dream in my, in my city
And thats where Ill stay
And thats where Ill stay
In my city

My shoulders ache for wanted wings
My city shakes the fear in me

I can feel my dream when Im, in my city
I fall on my knees for my, for my city
Were grow on every dream in my, in my city
And thats where Ill stay
And thats where Ill stay
In my city
