about

City of Light is an original jazz-pop song with music by the Argentinian composer Roman Gomez and performed by the singer Andria Antoniou. The song appears on their debut latin-jazz album “Encuentro” and features the bandoneon, a distinctive Argentinian instrument with a sensual and sombre sound, often called the symbol of tango. The sweet, soft tone of the voice and piano lend the song a dreamlike quality. With lyrics by the English writer Julia Gray, City of Light is a song about nostalgia: memories of a city were two people met and fell in love, sharing secrets at sunset, walking by the river; a city of light and sound and magic.

lyrics

City of light, the river shines
Fireworks sparkle like diamond mines
The windows that glow with rainbow light
Headlights that glitter in the night

City of sound, the traffic calls
The merry-go-round, the market stalls
The band that played our favourite tune
On the deck of the boat one sunny afternoon

City of ours, where every street
Is shaped by the prints of a hundred thousand feet
City of all my memories
You run like a river through my dreams

Hours we walked, hours we talked; wishes we made
Secrets we told as the golden light started to fade
City of all my memories
You run like a river through my dreams

City of light, the river shines
Fireworks sparkle like diamond mines
City of all my memories
You run like a river through my dreams

Hours we walked, hours we talked; wishes we made
Secrets we told as the golden light started to fade
City of all my memories
You run like a river through my dreams

Hours we walked, hours we talked; wishes we made
Secrets we told as the golden light started to fade
City of all my memories
You run like a river through my dreams
