Urban Splendor - Canvas
City Life BluesCity life, trying to hustle and make ends meet
Living it up every day on these city streets
Caked in dirt, but no one's humble and content
That urban splendor shouldn't be a crime, it's Heaven sent
City life, bright lights shining and people to greet
Breaking our backs from nine-to-five, ain't life a treat?
If only there was something more, something we could trust
Cause this city, she ain't got no faith--she's gone bust
City life, backstabbin' and connivin' cheating
Dirty money, dirty streets, soiled clothes and cheatin'
If an honest buck is ever found, it's a blessing in disguise
Maybe some day we can take a break, and it won't be so unwise
