Lyrics

When the sun wakes up the heartbeat of the city,
When the day has dawned and the energy starts to glow.
When the people start to chatter and in the distance the engines roll.
When the thunder of the factories build the rhythm
When the limousines and taxis line the streets
When the sounds of human laughter fill the emptiness
When a new day begins, I will walk these streets, once again.
I will walk these streets, once again.
When the crown upon the skyline glows in sunset
When the colors of the city turn to grey
When the towers of the day get lost in darkness
I will walk these streets, once again. I will walk these streets, once again.
I will walk these streets, once again.
Cold haze, sun's rays, new ways, new grace.
When the glory of the nightlife starts to rumble
When the people take a breath when day is done
When the worries fade to laughter for just a little while until I reach my journeys'
end
I will walk these streets, once again. I will walk these streets, once again.
And when I lay my weary head upon the pillow, And I take my final walk into the sky
And when I find myself resting in field of stones. I will not cry.

And when I find that I have crossed into eternity, when the Day has dawned and the pain has gone away.
And my rest is won as I gaze upon that City.
I will walk those streets without end, I walk those golden streets without end.
Gonna walk through the City
Through the glorious city
Through the wonder of the City
To see the Lord of the City now
To see the King of the City
