City on Our Knees
by tobyMac



if you gotta start somewhere
why not here?
if you gotta start sometime
why not now?

if we gotta start somewhere
i say here
if we gotta start sometime
i say now

through the fog
there is hope in the distance

from cathedrals
to third worlds missions

love will fall to to earth
like a crashing wave

tonight's the night
for the sinners ans the saints

two worlds collide
in a beautiful display

it's all up tonight
when we step across the line

we can sail across the sea
to a city with one king

a city on our knees x2

if you gotta start somewhere
why not here?
if you gotta start sometime
why not now?

if we gotta start somewhere
i say here
if we gotta start sometime
i say now

through the fog
there is hope in the distance

from cathedrals
to third world missions

love will fall to the earth
like a crashing wave

tonight's the night
for the sinners and the saints

two worlds collide
in a beautiful display

it's all up tonight
when we step across the line

we can sail across the sea
to a city with one king

a city on our knees x2

tonight couldn't last forever
we are one choice from together
tonight couldn't last forever
ohhh...

tonight couldn't last forever
we are one choice from together

family, we're family

oh tonight couldn't last forever
we are one choice from together

you and me
yeah you and me.......

tonight's the night
for the sinners and the saints

two worlds collide
in a glorious display

cause it's all up tonight
when we step across the line

we can sail across the sea
to a city with one king

a city on our knees x4

if we gotta start somewhere
why not here?

if we gotta start sometime
why not now?
