lyrics

You woke on a beach today
In Chicago, USA
Watching birds at play
In the mighty Michigan

Over a lake that’s an ocean
You’ve risen to the occasion
With little hesitation
You’ve earned your wings your way

Windy city girl (city girl)
Windy city girl (city girl)
Climb as high
Bank as wide
As you wanna go
We’ll be waiting right here (waiting right here)
Waiting round here (waiting right here)
If you tire
You can always ride
The wind back home

Floating between canyons
And sky-reaching mansions
And elevated stations
People come and go

Don’t take it for granted
Some of us get stranded
Looking for a landing
And space to spread our own

Windy city girl (city girl)
Windy city girl (city girl)
Climb as high
Bank as wide
As you wanna go
We’ll be waiting right here (waiting right here)
Waiting round here (waiting right here)
If you tire
You can always ride
The wind back home
