Song Meaning
Verse 1
Every man has got two cities he needs to be
The one he can touch and the one he can't see
The one where a stranger's a friend
Verse 2
Everyman has got one city of liberty
For me it's Paris, I love it
Every time I try to lose myself
I seem to find these streets of surrender
Verse 3
You're free baby, baby
Free now and forever
It's Christmas time you can decide
To forget or to remember
You're free baby, baby
I didn't come down here to fight you
I came here down these streets
Of love and pride to surrender
The streets of surrender
Of surrender
Verse 4
I heard the oldest story that nobody seems to know
I think it was about that stranger
It was youth and love and it was danger
Verse 5
It was winter but that warm it gets before the snow
It froze my soul
I'm crying, crying 'bout some kid that they found
Lying on a beach, born in a manger
Verse 6
You're free baby, baby
Free now and forever
It's Christmas time you can decide
To forget or to remember
You're free baby, baby
I didn't come down here to fight you
I came here down these streets
Of love and pride to surrender
The streets of surrender
Verse 7
I live in the stories that are told
In the child you chose to hold
And the ones you turn away
Verse 8
To be free baby, baby
Free now and forever
This vale of tears will disappear
And it's love you will remember
You're free baby, baby
I didn't come down here to fight you
I came here down these streets
Of love and pride to surrender
The streets of surrender
The streets of surrender
