"In My City" as written by Mathieu Jomphe-lepine, Elena Jane Goulding and Talay Riley....
And if I ever had a wish in the whole world
I would’ve listened to my brother when he spoke to me
And I never would’ve played with my conscience
And it feels what the way I want in their company

But You gave me wings and I used them
I used them, I used them on my youth
And You gave me wings and I used them
I used them, and I won’t lose them

Now I found my feet down to 1, 2, 3
And I’m taking off tonight, now I’m free
As I walk my feet on the cold dark green
And I and I and I

I fulfill my dreams when I’m in my city
I follow my needs for my, for my city
We’re going off the dream in my, in my city
And that’s where I’ll stay
And that’s where I’ll stay
In my city

Rolling down the streets in my new town
With the lights blinding and my heart played down
I think I’m glad that you’ll receive people’s thunder
But the folks back home I’ll make them vouch

You gave me wings and I used them
I used them, I used them on my youth
Yea You gave me wings and I used them
I used them, I don’t wanna lose them
I don’t wanna lose them

I fulfill my dreams when I’m in my city
I follow my needs for my, for my city
We’re going off the dream in my, in my city
And that’s where I’ll stay
And that’s where I’ll stay
In my city

Shoulders end for wanting wings
My city shakes, the feel in me

I fulfill my dreams when I’m in my city
I follow my needs for my, for my city
We’re going off the dream in my, in my city
And that’s where I’ll stay
And that’s where I’ll stay
In my city

    General CommentIf I ever had a wish in the whole world
    I would’ve listened to my brother when he spoke to me
    And I never would’ve played with my conscience
    In the fields where I was in their company

    But You gave me wings and I used them
    I used them, I used them on my youth
    And You gave me wings and I used them
    I used them, and I won’t lose them

    Now I found my feet, count to 1, 2, 3
    And I’m taking off tonight, now I’m free
    As I walk my feet on the cold concrete
    And I and I and I

    I can feel my dreams when I’m in my city
    I fall on my knees for my, for my city
    We’re going off the dream in my, in my city
    And that’s where I’ll stay
    And that’s where I’ll stay
    In my city

    Rolling down the streets in my new town
    With the lights blinding and my heart played down
    I think I’ll get a job with stealing people’s thunder
    But the folks back home I’ll make them vouch

    You gave me wings and I used them
    I used them, I used them on my youth
    Yeah, You gave me wings and I used them
    I used them, I don’t wanna lose them
    I don’t wanna lose them

    I can feel my dreams when I’m in my city
    I fall on my knees for my, for my city
    We’re going off the dream in my, in my city
    And that’s where I’ll stay
    And that’s where I’ll stay
    In my city

    Shoulders ache for wanted wings
    My city shakes, the fear in me

    I can feel my dreams when I’m in my city
    I fall on my knees for my, for my city
    We’re going off the dream in my, in my city
    And that’s where I’ll stay
    And that’s where I’ll stay
    In my city
