This city is made of stone
Earth and ground is moved, stacked to build a home
The trees are standing all alone
Transplanted to the city streets
To make this place feel more like home
A place we do not know
But it’s fine, oh it’s fine, oh it’s fine…
A place where I long to go
Where it’s mine, oh it’s mine, it’s mine…
Oh it’s time

If the streets turned to a riverway
And the cars just simply float away
And the buildings turned to redwood trees
Taller than the eye can see
If I could watch that sun go up and down
On the other side of town
And if the streetlights turned to moonlight
If the streetlights turned to moonlight
Baby that’d be alright, it’d be alright with me

And the noise down on the streets
Of beeps and bangs and honks and dogs and baby’s screams
The noise is jumbled like a sea
It rolls like thunder and the rumbling is calling out to me

I hear the mountains call my name
Singing ah…..
The sweeping valleys do the same
Singing ah…

If the streets turned to a riverway
And the cars just simply float away
And the buildings turned to redwood trees
Taller than the eye can see
If I could watch that sun go up and down
On the other side of town
And if the streetlights turned to moonlight
If the streetlights turned to moonlight

If the birds flew south when winter came
And we all packed up and did the same
Just to catch a taste of God’s green earth
Is to drink the cup of life’s rebirth

And if this cold concrete beneath our toes
Was a wide green field where flowers grow
From up here on the third floor balcony
I can see the possibilities

And the thunder on the street below
Finally begins to slow
As the streetlights turn to moonlight
