lyrics

CITY STARTS TO BLOOM
Words & Music by Jason Reeves & Amber Rubarth (c) 2010 Dancing Squirrel / INAFI Music (ASCAP) / Inspiraled Music (ASCAP)

Streetlights are screaming at me. Signals and signs. Buildings that got so hungry they swallowed the sky. People locked in metal boxes waiting to ride on streams of concrete rushing by.

But whenever I’m alone with you busy streets go silent, the city starts to bloom.
Whenever I’m alone with you it feels just like it’s raining from a sky that’s perfect blue.
When I’m alone with you.

Strangers in black and white with eyes on the ground. Crashing into each other, lost in the crowd. Braving the waves all hoping they will be found on streams of concrete rushing out.

But whenever I’m alone with you busy streets go silent, the city starts to bloom.
Whenever I’m alone with you it feels just like it’s raining from a sky that’s perfect blue.
When I’m alone with you.

All the freckles on the sidewalks are just gum spots left like scars. We take our time to soak it all in as so many drive past in cars and they don’t see the world like we still do.

‘Cause whenever I’m alone with you busy streets go silent, the city starts to bloom.
Whenever I’m alone with you it feels just like it’s raining from a sky that’s perfect blue.
Whenever I’m alone with you busy streets go silent and the city starts to bloom.
Whenever I’m alone with you it feels just like it’s raining from a sky that’s perfect blue.
When I’m alone with you.
