"City of Immigrants"

Livin' in a city of immigrants
I don't need to go travelin'
Open my door and the world walks in
Livin' in a city of immigrants
Livin' in a city that never sleeps
My heart keepin' time to a thousand beats
Singin' in languages I don't speak
Livin' in a city of immigrants
City of black
City of white
City of light
City of innocents
City of sweat
City of tears
City of prayers
City of immigrants

(INSTRUMENTAL)

Livin' in a city where the dreams of men
Reach up to touch the sky and then
Tumble back down to earth again
Livin' in a city that never quits
Livin' in a city where the streets are paved
With good intentions and a people's faith
In the sacred promise a statue made
Livin' in a city of immigrants
City of stone
City of steel
City of wheels
Constantly spinnin'
City of bone
City of skin
City of pain
City of immigrants

(INSTRUMENTAL)

All of us are immigrants
Every daughter, every son
Everyone is everyone
All of us are immigrants - everyone
Livin' in a city of immigrants
River flows out and the sea rolls in
Washin' away nearly all of my sins
Livin' in a city of immigrants
City of black All of us are immigrants
City of white
City of light Every daughter, every son
Livin' in a city of immigrants
City of sweat Everyone is everyone
City of tears
City of prayers All of us are immigrants
Livin' in a city of immigrants
City of stone All of us are immigrants
City of steel
City of wheels Every daughter, every son
Livin' in a city of immigrants
City of bone Everyone is everyone
City of skin
City of pain All of us are immigrants
City of immigrants
All of us are immigrants, all of us are immigrants
