"The City And The River" as written by and Gabriel Mann Adrianne Gonzalez....
two centuries
since I first saw you weave
like a dancer, ‘round my heart
you grew wild when it rained
I dug deep into the slate
so we’d never be apart

you, you always stay by me
you, you wander but never leave
I’m the one who watches over you
that’s what I was built to do

laid the track poured the streets
towers of glass and concrete
in silence you watched what I became
lifted me up
said I’d stand at the top
and all the world would know my name

you, you always stay by me
you, you wander but never leave
I’m the one who watches over you
that’s what i was built to do

love don’t you weep
you know we cannot keep
this moment here together
if you could only you see
the beauty that i see
we'd go on forever

and as I turn to rust
start to crack, betray us
you, you haven’t aged a day
when its time for me to go
promise me that you’ll flow
until the ocean washes you away

you, you always stay by me
you, you wander but never leave
I’m the one who watches over you
that’s what I was built to do
