Floating City

Lyrics by Tori Amos

You went away
why did you leave me
you know I believed you
nothing explained
where are the answers
I know I need you

Tell me
Is your city paved with gold?
Is there hunger?
Do your people grow old?
Do your governments have secrets
that they've sold?

Every night I wait
take me away
to your floating city
by my window at night
I see the lights
to your floating city
I want to play
in your floating city, yeah
floating city, yeah

T.V. turns off
any of us that say
that we've seen you
tell me, are we the only planet
that can't conceive you

Will we be like Atlantis long ago
so assured that we're advanced
with what we know
that our Spirit
never had time
to grow

Every night I wait
take me away
to your floating city
by my window at night
I see the lights
to your floating city
I want to play
in your floating city, yeah
floating city, yeah

Is it weak to look for Saviors out in Space
little Earth, she tries so hard to change our ways
sometimes she must get sick of this place

Every night I wait
take me away
to your floating city
by my window at night
I see the lights
to your floating city
I want to play
in your floating city, yeah
floating city, yeah
