sweetbeatz: Music & Lyrics

neighborhood

(sweetbeatz)

I can tell you where I live,
it's three blocks from the bus stop,
on the corner by the park, if you're heading my way
I'll surely show you around, my neighborhood
and everything around me

I'll race you past the brownstones lined up one by one
past my friends playin' double dutch and havin lots of fun
The flowers on the sidewalk we drew in chalk
they still remain on the spot three blocks from the busstop
it's where I live, it's my home..tell me where you live!


I live in the city, I live in the valley
I'm from the mountains,I live by the sea
I live on the coastline, I'm in the dessert
it's where I live, and it's home to me
(tell me about it 'bout it, tell me about it 'bout it, tell me about it)


Can you smell the fabric softener
the scent floats from the laundromat
where our wash tumbles tumbles dry,
can you hear the subway rolling underground,
they take you back and forth
and it feels like the best carnival ride
I can tell you where I'm from, the place I call home


 I live in the city, I live in the valley
I'm from the mountains, I live by the sea
I live on the coastline I'm in the desert,
it's where I live, and it's home to me
(tell me about it 'bout it, tell me about it 'bout it, tell me about it)


Do you have a porch where you sit drinking lemonade
or a stoop where you gather for an ice cream cone
is there a picket fence or a doorman to let you in,
tell me where you live, (tell me where you're from)
do you climb up flights of stairs or ride an elevator
out your window do you see the front yard
or the bright lights that shine city wide
can you tell me where you're from, the place you call home..


I live in the city, I live in the valley
I'm from the mountains, I live by the sea
I live on the coastline I'm in the desert,
it's where I live, and it's home to me 


Can you tell me where you live
can you tell me where you're from,
can you tell me where you live,
tell me about your home

Can you tell me where you live
can you tell me where you're from,
can you tell me where you live,
tell me about your home


Someday we'll play in your neighborhood
Someday come play in my neighborhood 
Someday we'll play in your neighborhood
Someday come play in my neighborhood
