Holy City

This song is by Edwin McCain and appears on the album Misguided Roses (1997).

Midnight in the Holy City
Playground for restless souls
Graveyards for the sons of Fort Sumpter
And the ghostly daughters
Wait for their boys to come home

Moonlight in the Holy City
So thick it warms the air
I burned my heart on a sweet southern flame
Like a hug from your mama saying it will be okay

Spilled my blood, in the Holy City
Seen the flood of a thousand rains
Ran away from the Holy City
Heard the spirits in the steeple singing
You'll be back again, you'll be back, brother

Sunrise in the Holy City
The kings and queens shuffle by
I'm born here of my own ashes
Just lay me down there when I die

Spilled my blood, in the Holy City
Seen the flood of a thousand rains
I ran away from the Holy City
Heard the spirits in the steeple singing
You'll be back
You'll be back again someday

I've seen visions, Lord I've seen visions
Hanging in the summer sky
Fell in love, lost my heart
Laughed until I cried

In the Holy City
In the Holy City
In the Holy City
I heard the spirits in the steeple
Singing you'll be back, you'll be back again someday
In the Holy City
