lyrics

I arrived in this city in a caravan
with a heavy heart, an open mind, and a pair of willing hands
What I soon would see would be more than I could take
I took one step and felt my heart as it began to break

So I’ll walk these streets tonight with one eye closed and the other opened wide
One remembering where I have come, and the other one hoping for your will to be done

They’re looking for the answer in this place
They’re hoping that the pleasure outweighs the pain
The streets carry their music as they play
And it creates this sidewalk serenade

So many people crying out in need
They’re giving everything they are for temporary things
The gifts they’ve been given, returned in the wrong place
While beauty and potential lie behind every face

So I’ll walk these streets tonight with one eye closed and the other opened wide
One praying to the father above and the other one looking at my brothers and sisters with love

I might have never set foot here before
But my heart and mind have many times sailed upon this distant shore
Blown in by the wind of the ever tempting song
It sang to me the melody, just forgets what’s wrong

So I’ll walk these streets tonight with one eye closed and the other opened wide
One praising You for what You saved me from and the other one singing a song of grace for all who come

We’re looking for the answer in this place
We’re hoping that the pleasure outweighs the pain
The streets carry our music as we play
And it creates this sidewalk serenade
