I Belong to the City
I am definitely, a city girl. I was born in Baltimore. One of the roughest, toughest, yet full of life places. I haven't been to Baltimore since 2011. and before that, it was 2004.
I visited New York often then finally moved to New York City. The Bronx. I was made for New York and New York was made for me.
I currently bounce between Minneapolis and New York.
I was recently offered an opportunity that would lead me to go back to New York, full time. Decisions.
The sun goes down, the night rolls in You can feel it starting all over again The moon comes up and the music calls You're gettin' tired of starin' at the same four walls
You're out of your room and down on the street Movin' through the crowd and the midnight heat The traffic crawls, the sirens scream You look at the faces, it's just like a dream
Nobody knows where you're goin' Nobody cares where you've been
'Cause you belong to the city You belong to the night Livin' in a river of darkness Beneath the neon lights You were born in the city Concrete under your feet
It's in your moves, it's in your blood You're a man of the street
When you said goodbye, you were on the run Tryin' to get away from the things you've done Now you're back again and you're feeling strange So much has happened but nothing has changed
You still don't know where you're goin' You're still just a face in the crowd
You belong to the city You belong to the night Livin' in a river of darkness Beneath the neon lights You were born in the city Concrete under your feet
It's in your blood, it's in your moves You're a man of the street
You can feel it, you can taste it You can see it, you can face it
You can hear it, hey, you're getting near it, hey You wanna make it, 'cause you can take it
You belong to the city, you belong to the night
