​One For The City

This song is by Illy and appears on the album Cinematic (2013).

Yeah, now, I don't mean to brag but
I'm a big city kid
Gone with the wind
Shoot from the hip
And all across the world, no difference
Every city in the world, at home within
Man, it could be nothing like the hard life
Shit, still a sucker for a Skyline
The open road's fine to write a couple of lines
But the cities tell the story of a lifetime
Cut; Lights, Camera, Action
It's all that, everything you imagine
It's right there, you can reach out and grab it
Dreams turn reality big smoke magic
Maybe I'm biased and maybe [?]
Maybe it's just that I don't know no better
City don't sleep, speakers at eleven
If they got a question this is what I tell them (them)

Them city streets are endless
Them bright lights catch the eye
We push it to the limit
We build it to the sky
And anything can happen
It's on you to roll the dice
Hold tight and get ready to ride

I'm home, I'm home and I'm one for the city tonight
Said, I'm home and I'm one for the city tonight

Yeah, you could live the dream
Have it fall in your lap
Fall in love or fall through the cracks
Tough call to avoid those traps
But in high-stakes business you gonna get that
Take it from the streets to the penthouse suites
All you need is a dream, a belief
A little luck and a bit of guts to achieve
Heart of the city, belly of the beast
Yeah, what you pay for, cheap thrills ain't cheap
Pay a high price if you wanna taste free
All the good isn't always what it seems
But that's fine with me, this is where I wanna be
Amongst the bright lights and the beat of the city
In any direction people are with me
We get busy, what a trip, what a blessing
They wanna question so I tell them

Them city streets are endless
Them bright lights catch the eye
We push it to the limit
We build it to the sky
And anything can happen
It's on you to roll the dice
Hold tight and get ready to ride

I'm home, I'm home and I'm one for the city tonight
Said, I'm home and I'm one for the city tonight
I'm home, I'm home and I'm one for the city tonight
Said, I'm home and I'm one for the city tonight

I'mma stay hard till the sun goes down
Till the lights come out
Till the lights go down
And the sun comes up again
I'mma stay hard till the sun goes down
Till the lights come out
Till the lights go down
And the sun comes up again
I'mma stay hard till the sun goes down
Till the lights come out
Till the lights go down
And the sun comes up again
I'mma stay hard till the sun goes down
Till the lights come out
Till the lights go down
And the sun comes up again
