"Island City" as written by and Justin Muir Justin Muir....
All her hopes and dreams are below:

She closed her eyes, and then the girl was standing on the sky.
And through the clouds, with diamond eyes, she saw herself in the city. (the city)

She looks into the mirror and sees diamonds and grace.
Pure innocence, by the look on her face.
She thinks out loud and says,
"Your words are like the kindling to my fire,
And I've got tunnel vision and the light's not hard to find
The words that I sing say."

And floating on above the world she waves the past goodbye.
And with a smile she finally found her destiny in the city.
