I can turn skyscrapers into mountains
and place a peaceful valley in the street.
The sidewalk then becomes a narrow winding path,
created by the step of gentle feet.
Street signs then become majestic oak trees
where birds can build a nest to hold their young.
Water in the gutter becomes a flowing stream
so pure that it refreshes every tongue.

I can turn the buildings into forrests
where creatures of the wild can live and die.
Then I have made the city a heaven for my soul,
where I can wish me wings and I can fly.

So don't awaken me while I am dreaming
if I will see the world I have take flight;
if dreams can be replaced by worlds I can not face,
if nightmares know the freedom of the light.

Let me soar in heavens I've created.
In dreams there is no danger to my flight.
And I'll not ask of you, if your dreams can come true
if they are held in bondage by the night.

Come be my guest. And don't be surprised if my descriptions seem a bit different than the view you experience.

Thanks for the input.
