a summer night (dreaming of new york)


Released: 2009 on 'London'



Still, this summer night, still and long
Too hot to sleep, to breathe, tonight
This summer night, gazing out
Across the sea of city lights,
As one by one they come on

And me, just dreaming of New York
This summer night
New York and you and me in love
In Central Park, holding hands, making plans,
Sitting in Times Square
Maybe where you are tonight
And me just waiting

Here, this summer night, as far away
Above the hum of passing cars
A siren sounds and makes its way
Like a rumour in a bar
Turning heads towards the night

And me, just dreaming of New York
This summer night
New York and you and me in love
In Central Park, holding hands, making plans,
Sitting in Times Square
Maybe where you are tonight
And me just waiting

Here, this summer night, gazing out
Just dreaming of New York
