All of my dreams are in New York
All of my thoughts are bound to flee
Paris, Madrid; Tokyo, Delhi
Did you all go traveling to get away from me?

Most of my heart is in Berlin
This is where all my dreams begin
L.A., Milan, London, Beijing
Did you all go traveling to never let me in?

For years and years I tried to hide
the Eiffel Towers of Copenhagen
I had a billion people
hiding in my basement.

Oh Copenhagen how it hurts,
deep down in my belly
To think of how I loved you
and was never loved in return.

I dream of cities, I dream of neon lights
I dream of cities, I dream of coloured skies
I dream of sushi cooks, I dream of Auster books
I dream of cities, I dream of skyline views
I dream of cities, I dream of drug abuse
I dream of business suits, I dream of prostitutes
I dream of cities, I dream of mere cement
I dream of cities, I dream of Liebeskind
I dream of things rebuilt, I dream of dreams fulfilled
I dream of cities, I dream in neon lights
