The City's Lullaby

I am the crowds and trickling cars
Humming, humming, near and far
My murmured heartbeat, strong and deep
Humming you to sleep.

I am the bones of steel and light
Humming, humming, through the night
Of sidewalks long and buildings tall
Humming you to fall.

I am the streetside's neon glow
Humming, humming, soft and low
I'm casting shadows of the day
Humming you to stay.

I am the home where you belong
Humming, humming you this song
My murmured heartbeat, strong and deep
Humming you to sleep.
