City Lights


Yeah, donÂ’t you get lonely
Riding subways back and forth?
Yeah, donÂ’t you get to wondering,
Having so much time to figure out what its all worth?

Somewhere there,
On a New York subway,
Going the other way,
Is a boy I knew once.
Yeah, donÂ’t you miss him now?
Yeah, arenÂ’t you glad,
For bright lights that lead us astray?
WouldnÂ’t you so much rather stay?

Holding a book
He borrowed a long time ago,
HeÂ’ll have one last look
And go somewhere I donÂ’t know.

Yeah, donÂ’t you get lonely
Riding subways back and forth?
Yeah donÂ’t you get to wondering
Having so much time to figure out what itÂ’s all worth?

Something forgotten on
A New York subway,
Something remembered
On a rainy day.

Yeah, donÂ’t you miss him,
Now that heÂ’s watching the city lights
From across the bay?
HeÂ’s found his own way.
Somewhere there,
Among the blinding lights
My baby found his own way.
