City of Dreams Here where you are standing The dinosaurs did a dance The indians told a story Now it has come to pass The Indians had a legend The Spaniards lived for gold The white man came and killed them But they haven't really gone We live in the city of dreams We drive on the highway of fire Should we awake And find it gone Remember this, our favorite town >From germany and Europe And Southern U.S.A. They made this little town here That we live in to this day The children of the white man Saw Indians on TV And heard about the legend How their city was a dream We live in the city of dreams We drive on the highway of fire Should we awake And find it gone Remember this, our favorite town The Civil War is over And World War One and Two If we can live together The dream it might come true Underneath the concrete The dream is still alive A hundred million lifetimes A world that never dies We live in the city of dreams We drive on the highway of fire Should we awake And find it gone Remember this, our favorite town Your request matches 1 albums and 9 songs.
