The city's beautiful,
in the early morning air,
love the smell of sunrise,
and everything becomes so clear,

I think you are beautiful,
and you know it by one look,
did you long for summertime
when you were growing up,

and when it finally came,
it wasn't 'round for long,
you ecstatically stumbled around,
one warm second it's suddenly gone,
one warm second it's suddenly gone,

I wish that time would stand still,
if this was a part of a film,
we would watch the clip all day,
like a portrait of you and I,
like a portrait of you and I
,


city's beautiful,
feel it in the morning air,
love the smell of sunrise,
everything becomes so clear,

I think you are beautiful,
and you know it by one look,
did you long for summertime,
when you were growing up,

well your life's just a breeze in eternity,
why not take this one chance and come fly with me,
just this once,
just this second that soon will be gone,

if this second was your life,
what would you do?
If this second was your life,
I would love you,
if this second was your life,
would you love me?

If this second was my life,
I would love it,
if this second was my life,
I would love you (whoa),
if this second was my life,
I would happily die,

the city's beautiful,
in the early morning air,
love the smell of sunrise,
and everything becomes so clear,

I don't have to look to see,
today it's all so clear,
chimney tops start to glow,
and that's when I will disappear.

    General CommentWithout a doubt one of my favourite tunes, Drum & Bass with gorgeous emotive lyrics in perfect combination - Tony Colman is a genius!
