It's quiet now
and what it brings
is everything.
Comes calling back
a brilliant night
I'm still awake.
I looked ahead I'm sure I saw you there.
You don't need me to tell you now,
that nothing can compare.

You might have laughed if I told you,
you might have hidden the frown.
You might have succeeded in changing me,
i might have been turned around.
It's easier to leave than to be left behind,
leaving was never my proud.
Leaving New York never easy,
I saw the life fading out.

Now life is sweet
and what it brings
I tried to take.
The loneliness,
it wears me out,
it lies in way.
And on our lost till in my eyes,
a shadow, a necklace across your thigh,
i might have lived my life in a dream,
but i swear,
this is real.
In my future some shadows like glass
but carry your future,
forget the past
but it's you,
it's what i feel.

You might have laughed if I told you
you might have hidden the frown.
You might have succeeded in changing me
i might have been turned around.
It's easier to leave than to be left behind,
leaving was never my proud.
Leaving New York never easy,
I saw the light fading out.

You find it in your heart,
it's pulling me apart.
You find it in your heart,
change
I told you, forever,
i love you, forever.
I told you , i love you,
i love you, forever.
I told you, forever,
i love you, forever.
I told you, i love you,
i love you, forever.

You might have laughed if I told you
you might have hidden the frown.
You might have succeeded in changing me
I might have been turned around.
It's easier to leave than to be left behind,
leaving was never my proud.
Leaving New York never easy,
i saw the life fading out.
Leaving New York never easy,
i saw the light fading out.
Leaving New Nork never easy,
i saw the life fading out
