Winter in New York

Winter in New York    ©Laforge/Randall

 

Close my eyes and I’ll be there

An etching comes to life

See her starry grey sidewalks

I know her like the back of my hand

 

Stray cats in the park

Looks the same in the dark

But not here

In this world apart

 

 

My old hometown, my original friend

Tell me New York, can I come home again?

 

Now this particular girl

Counts the snow as it falls

All winter long

Black and blue nights so strong

But big city lights are always bright

So I’ll close my eyes until they’re out of sight

 

My old hometown, my original friend

Tell me New York, can I come home again?


As a child you showed me

When I was older you told me

I’ve walked other shores

But it’s your memory that calls and calls

 

My old hometown, my original friend

Tell me New York, can I come home again?
