"Chasing the Skyline"
Words and Music by Michael B. Hicks
Michael B. Hicks Music, BMI ©2012

A mind still rooted in southern ways
Talking with a southern drawl, walking at a southern pace
And with shoes still soiled from the southern Georgia clay
He looks out into this new city

Though daunting his endeavor seems
He fights the appeal of those clever schemes
It's the opening scene from his favorite dream
And the bright lights make the night pretty

He wonders what he might find
Under those billboard signs
He hopes to be treated kind
By the four corners of these times

He's chasing the skyline

The noise of excitement's a deafening sound
Not a thing here reminds him of his small hometown
He's on top of the world as he travels underground
He's fulfilled, yet he's hungry for more

He's clueless as to what lies ahead
Sees the dirt and the grime, calls it beauty instead
He dismisses the horror stories he's read
He longs for whatever is in store

He wonders what he might find
Under those billboard signs
He hopes to be treated kind
By the four corners of these times

He's chasing the skyline
