Well…I don’t think there’s any other city quite like New York City
I’m getting to see little bits and pieces of the city
I’m getting to see yards of Brooklyn, the Bronx and everything
A few days ago was done in Harlem and I heard these words
Coming out of a church hall that said
‘I believe in the kingdom come, then all the colours will bleed into one’
I said, hey, those are my words, I wrote those words
I said, that’s our music they’re singing
So I went inside and I found the New Voices of Freedom, a gospel choir
And they were singing this song

I have climbed highest mountain
I have run through the fields
Only to be with you
Only to be with you

I have run, I have crawled
I have scaled these city wall
These city walls
Only to be with you

But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
(One-two-three-four)

I have kissed honey lips
Felt the healing in her fingertips
Burned like a fire
This burning desire

I have spoke with the tongue of angel
I have held the hand of a devil
It was warm in the night
I was cold as a stone, mm-hm

But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for

The sound of one hand clapping, amen

I believe in the kingdom come
Then all the colours will bleed into one
Bleed into one
But, yes, I’m still running
Oh God help me

You broke the bonds and you
Loosed the chains
Carried the cross of my shame
Of my shame
You know I believe it

But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still…
