Big Pretty City
From the album Runway Lights
© 2014 S. Swenson Songs
Written and performed by Sara Swenson

VERSE 1
Voices
Voices outside my window
Louder as the day gets longer
Scratches in the air

VERSE 2
Faces
Millions divided by corners
The great human migration
Scattered, frantic, fast

CHORUS
Oooooh
Oooooh
That big pretty city
Oooooh

VERSE 3
Buildings
Curtains to the horizon
Strong, stoic, revolving
Houses of stories and dust

BRIDGE
Everyone will stay for a while
No one will be here long
Marvelous circus changes her act
Before anyone learns the song

CHORUS

VERSE 4
Somewhere between busses and trains and footpaths
Grocers, raindrops and profits
As far as you are close

VERSE 5
You’re there
You’re there and I should be with you
Listening for the birds’ evening chorus
The city to mind its own

BRIDGE

CHORUS (repeat)
