lyrics

Could this town be back on the rebound?
Remembering way back when
The back streets of Poplar and Fairmount
Were home away on every weekend
An old house and neighborhood playground
A story that would never end
But now fades inside my head

I've been driving, synthesizing, watching the demise and peak
Graffiti fights "we love City Heights"
That's the heart of this town
Feel the heart of this town beat

Watching ghosts project on the screen
Runnin' in and out of my head
Come alive and blend in with the scene
I can see something up ahead
in that house down on Poplar somewhere
Hitting like a chill in the air
Grandad rocks back in his rocking chair

I've been driving, synthesizing, watching the demise and peak
Graffiti fights "we love city heights"
That's the heart of this town
Feel the heart of this town beat

Art verses the graffiti, a fight to save the community
Win the war with song and dance, this melting pot still has a chance
Down on Home and Fairmount painted bright
The concrete proudly says, "we love City Heights"
Bringing this chapter to an end

The clock strikes a new year at midnight
And I can hear echoing decades
While gunfire shoots through dimming street lights
Another childhood memory fades
Hear the sound of my old ghost town
Whispering its last goodnights
In the heart of City Heights

I've been driving, synthesizing, watching the demise and peak
Graffiti fights "we love city heights"
That's the heart of this town
Feel the heart of this town beat
