lyrics

Bring us a notebook, leather bound, embossed
Or well thumbed and dog-eared
Pages like alabaster doves
Or one-legged central station pigeons I don’t care
And here we will sit
On the city’s tallest shoulders
The carpet long gone from beneath us
Here we will sit on the 24th concrete floor

Let’s fling wide those flimsy green curtains
Lift our eyes to the horizon
Recognise every city we’ve ever seen

Remember bricks that hold the sun’s heat
Remember wells yielding water pure and sweet
Remember cabins in the forest
How our hands smelt of juniper that whole summer
Remember square spires striving skywards
Remember rivers carving swathes of green
Now let’s unravel those memories
And weave all our threads into something holy

Let’s fling wide those flimsy green curtains
Lift our gaze to the horizon
Recognise every city we’ve ever seen

Now close your eyes
And lift your pen
And draw with me

Imagine the smile of a stranger
Imagine the joy that comes in the morning
Imagine the plump raindrops
That will come unexpectedly, washing us all clean
Imagine a dandelion-yellow urban meadow
Imagine safety while storms drum the window
Imagine rich and unfamiliar flavours
Imagine a place that we will all call home

Let’s fling wide those flimsy green curtains
Lift our gaze to the horizon
Recognise every city we’ve ever seen

Now close your eyes
And lift your pen
And draw with me
