I Came To The City - Lyrics

I came to the city, where I was born
I came to the city, where I was born
Bricks laid scattered around my feet
No one passed me along my street

I came to the city, where I was young
I came to the city, where I was young
Glass was shattered in ev'ry store
All was cold and had lived before

I came to the city, to find my love
I came to the city, to find my love
Stood in the sunlight and called his name
Back through the still lands an echo came
An echo of ashes and smoke and flame

Went from the city, my eyes cast down
Went from the city, my eyes cast down
Deep in the past I remembered still
Voices that spoke with persuasive skill
"It can't happen here! It never will!"

Writer(s): FRED EBB, JOHN KANDER
