Track Name: In My City
(Verse 1)
You say that you're ready for more
I don't believe you
You say that you're ready for more
I don't believe you
Can you look me in the eye
Tell me that you like
What you feel right now?
Life starts right now or never
Close your eyes, fly into forever

(chorus)
In my City/ oh oh
We live for the light tonight
In my City/ oh oh
We fight to hold the light
I know it's not easy to see, but the stars all shine in my City
In my city/oh oh/Aye

(verse 2)
This is how we move/ We got 'em lining up the sides of the street
Sidewalks crowded with danger
I'm not a stranger/ to what happens when you ask for
And when you get it oh Lord
Pray in the end it's what you need and more/ I say
Just be careful what you wish for
You might get it/ You might get it say

(chorus)
In my City/ oh oh
We live for the light tonight
In my City/ oh oh
We fight to hold the light
I know it's not easy to see, but the stars all shine in my City
In my city/oh oh/Aye

(Bridge)
I fight my way through the crowd tonight
This is home and it all feels right
We realize that life is short
Live it cause I got no time to loan

(chorus)
In my City/ oh oh
We live for the light tonight
In my City/ oh oh
We fight to hold the light
I know it's not easy to see, but the stars all shine in my City
In my city/oh oh/Aye

Track Name: In My City Original Demo 2010
They say that they ready for more/ I don't believe you
You say that you ready for more/ well I don't believe you
Tell me can you look me in the eye
Tell me if you like
What you feel right now?
Life starts right now or never
Close your eyes, fly into forever
Aye!
(Verse 1)
This is how we move/ We got 'em lining up the sides of the street
Sidewalks crowded with danger
I'm not a strangerto what happens when you ask for
And when you get it oh Lord
Pray in the end it's what you need and more/ I say
Just be careful what you wish for
You might get it/ You might get it say

(chorus)
In my city/ oh oh
We live for the light tonight/ I said
In my city/ oh oh
We fight for just one night
Well I know it's not easy to see, but the stars they all fly in my city today/ I say
In my city/oh oh/Aye

(verse 2)
Cryin' at night by yourself/ you don't want nobody's help
You don't wanna be down with nothing less you've held it
In your own hand/ and I guess I understand
If you don't trust no one then you can't comprehend
Having someone on your team like me
So you would rather step aside and make me believe that you just don't love me no more
(Oh no) Then I just don't need you no more/ I'm so gone
I say/ I get lost in the night time/ I fight my way through the crowd tonight
We realize that life is short
Live it cause I got no time to loan/ I say
In my city/ it's so crazy
My mama died at 22 years/ Eh eh
So I guess I gotta live for the both of us
When I shine you know that she is there 'cause

(Chorus)
In my city/ oh oh
We live for the light tonight/ I said
In my city/ oh oh
We fight for just one night
Well I know it's not easy to see, but the stars they all fly in my city today/ I say
In my city/oh oh/Aye

In my city/ oh oh
We live for the light tonight/ I said
In my city/ oh oh
We fight for just one night
Well I know it's not easy to see, but the World believes/ they wanna be in my city today/ I say
In my city/oh oh/ woah oh oh
