Shifting City
LYRICS...
Somewhere in the shifting city
We're slipping shadows
Shifting into places
Over, under
In and out of phase I wander
Often I can feel the drifting sea
All shifting slowly through me
When I'm waking and when I'm half asleep
Somehow
Somewhere
Some trace
Some place...

Somewhere in the shifting city
The drifting city
The glistening city
The tricky vivid glittering city
And I'm still trying to figure in it

Somewhere, Somehow, Some trace, Some place...

Silent Sunday, early morning
Over under damp and dawning
We'll be waltzing by the windows
Stunned by all the sudden sunglow

Can we play the moves before we go?
Empty empire into bungalow
Slowly shifting into other vistas
Visiting and lost and listless

Listening, misty
Seeing, shady
Waving, meeting
Swirling, swaying
Saying something to me slowly
Somewhere in the shifting city

Sometime, Somehow, Some trace, Some place...

(And I will find you in the streets and you will know me)

Somewhere in the shifting city
The drifting city
The glistening city
The tricky vivid glittering city
And I'm still trying to figure in it

(And I will see you in the streets when you are lonely)

Somewhere, Somehow, Some trace, Some place...

(And I will find you in the streets and you will know me)

NOTES...
"Well, it always does doesn't it? The streets never connect in the same way twice, damn it. Whole thing's written on water. And so am I. This song is a joy to play live. Louis came up with the coda. Peak time playing."
