lyrics

Traffic Sing by Carrie Katz

Look at that sky, look at that sky
And hear the traffic sing
Imagine an ocean, far away
Simple pleasures of a warm day
It’s a sea of cars living next to you
But you pretend it’s an ocean, with an ocean view


I don’t sing anymore, I just lay awake at night
I don’t write anymore, I just scream in fright
They’re coming to get me, and I know that you can’t tell
They make illusions easy, it’s real life that’s hell

A big wall, was built in vain
It doesn’t hide the noise of the pollution train
You can’t hide from the highway
That’s been built next to you
If your sleep remains troubled
Just take a pill or two

Chorus: I don’t sing anymore, I just lay awake at night
I don’t write anymore, I just scream in fright
They’re coming to get me, and I know that you can’t tell
They make illusions easy, it’s real life that’s hell

Drive your car, away, away, away
We need to keep the noise and boredom at bay
Cars help us get from point B to A
I love my car don’t take it away

Look at that sky, look at that blue sky
Hear the birds’ song
Because it won’t be long
Before the traffic sings it’s last hurrah
Before the quiet descends on us all
It’s a sea of cars living next to you
But you pretend it’s an ocean, with an ocean view

I don’t sing anymore, I just lay awake at night
I don’t write anymore, I just scream in fright
They’re coming to get me, and I know that you can’t tell
They make illusions easy, it’s real life that’s hell
