once a city lyrics – 10000 maniacs

music by 10, 000 maniacs – lyrics by mary ramsey & john lombardo

this was once a city
harmony a common theme
but these complications
now make life a bit uneasy
hallowed buildings scr*pe the sky
voices ride the airwaves
once a city years gone by
will they still be standing in thecenturies ahead
going underground little children hiding,
bullets never meant for them
must there be such bloodshed in our hearts, our homes, ourheads?
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.
