GHOSTS OF THE CITY LYRICS

1st Verse

You ever watched love die
Heart bleeding wrapped tight up in barb wire
Couldn't save her cause your hands tied
Paralyzed by a mans pride
Came home found my worlds gone,
Called her bluff now my souls lost
Paranoid by my past moves, running wild with them bad wolves
Mistakes that the young do, chasing dreams we don't think through
Short cuts turn to long routes, flying high till you crash down
Drowning fast in a whirl pool, of regrets you can't swim through
Beat the odds please god help me spread wings
Snap the rope round my neck please
Breathe some hope into my dead dreams
Plan to grow into a black king
Plant a rose for my lost queen
So many ghosts I hear their souls sing

Chorus

Time, hold it tight don't let life pass you by
Fly, to your dreams through the night reach them heights
Why? just exist through the mist be alive
Ghosts of the city

2nd Verse

You ever seen love birthed
A connection so strong it transcends earth
Still hear my uncles voice, though he long gone,
Telling me to push on, momma praying I don't do wrong
Be a ghost floating blind through this cruel world, word
So I write it for my little ones
Who still smile though they trapped in the biggest slums
Road rough keep my heart pure
Show love Dakar out to Darfur
From a young age I seen death
So every second here I get, see I feel blessed
Past lessons, from our black legends
Hand fed us, how to stand better
Be a man, free at last brother
Build our land, understand
Time to get up, and resurrect our ancestors

Chorus

Time, hold it tight don't let life pass you by
Fly, to your dreams through the night reach them heights
Why? just exist through the mist be alive
Ghosts of the city

3rd Verse

Have you ever seen a dark soul
Mind stuck in hells kitchen at the cross roads
Steady asking for the lords forgiveness
But I'm surrounded by these demons and witches
Thriller sparking in the jungle
Late night with young Fraziers, vicious
Below the surface and trapped got to get out the trenches
Like king dreaming of a better day
Hell a nigga got to make it for my daughters sake
For my boy Ty watching through them pearly gates
Visions of a soldiers past, hunting me while I'm awake
So I blow the trees to escape
A stranger in the mirror can't recognize his face
Frame cold, sporting hate like a winter coat
Seen too many eyes turn ghost in the smoke
Friends to fiends, drowning in pain from the devils tears
I took the scars, conquered odds with a rebels spear

Chorus

Time, hold it tight don't let life pass you by
Fly, to your dreams through the night reach them heights
Why? just exist through the mist be alive
Ghosts of the city
