Crazy City - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


Lyrics

Running alone in the crazy city
Look at the face of once were pretty
People then wonder what happened
To make it that way
Listen around you, have you heard?
Climb on the back of a silver bird
London to l.a. before you can think
What to say

Stop awhile, take a smile
Know that you're living in today
Up and down, look around
No need to hide yourself away

Out in the country's where i'm going
Back where the tree of life's still growing
Take a free ride where the tide
Flows the way of your heart

Follow the wild dove where he's flying
Out where the sun is never crying
Wait at the gate or they'll stop you
And blow you apart

Stop awhile, take a smile
Know that you're living in today
Up and down, look around
No need to hide yourself away
