The Atmosphere of Here

As you ride through the city night and you see the city lights 

The stars shine bright 

And the breeze is just right 

You laugh cuz you experience it all 

With a smile or a blush -this makes you 10ft tall

Corinne Bailey Rae plays & all the lights turn green

And you’re asking God what does it all really mean  


Looking through the sunroof staring at the sky 
Hope she doesn’t catch me staring at her eyes 

For her lips tell truths and my hands tell lies 

So I crack the knuckles in my hand to keep the nerves in disguise 

And I’m hoping the night stays young 

To answer restless questions of the why’s 


Why she doesn’t do this 

And why he doesn’t have that 

Trying to find solutions are steady holding us back 


You can see the battle in those eyes and the tears that they cried 

Hear the fear in the heart just waiting for a spark 

Maybe an inspiration to change the situation 

from the world they were facing 

And the fear they were embracing 

…it’s the atmosphere here
