Floating City

This song is by Tori Amos and appears on the album Y Kant Tori Read (1988).

You went away
Why did you leave me? You know I believed you
Nothing explained
Where are the answers? I know I need you

Tell me is your city paved with gold?
Is there hunger? Do your people grow old?
Do your governments have secrets that they've sold?

Every night I wait
Take me away to your floating city
By my window at night
I see the lights to your floating city
Come and take me away
I want to play in your floating city
Floating city

TV turns off
Any of us that say that we've seen you
Tell me
Are we the only planet that can't conceive you

Will we be like Atlantis long ago?
So assured that we're advanced with what we know
That our spirit never had time to grow?

Every night I wait
Take me away to your floating city
By my window at night
I see the lights to your floating city
Come and take me away, yeah
I want to play in your floating city
Floating city, yeah

Is it weak to look for saviours out in space?
Little Earth she tries so hard to change our ways
Sometimes she must get sick of this place

Every night I wait
Take me away to your floating city
By my window at night
I see the lights to your floating city
Come and take me away
I want to play in your floating city
Floating city

Every night I wait
Take me away to your floating city
By my window at night
I see the lights to your floating city
Come and take me away
I want to play in your floating city
Floating city, yeah
