Once A City Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

This was once a city
Harmony a common theme
But these complications
Now make life a bit uneasy

This was once a city
Hallowed buildings, scrape the sky
Voices ride the airwaves
Once a city years gone by

Will they still be standing
In the centuries ahead
Going underground

Little children hiding
Bullets never meant for them
Must there be such bloodshed in our hearts
Our homes, our heads?

Will I be walking, walking so free?

This was a city once

This was once a city
Harmony a common theme
But these complications
Once a city, once a dream
