about

A nostalgic love song full of hope.

lyrics

[Verse]

Won’t you meet me in New York City,
Walk with me down the avenues,
Won’t you meet me burrowed in buildings
Talk with me through the passing afternoon,

[Chorus]

Hand in hand by my side,
Stay with me until the night,
Pours in all around us,
And golden windows all light up,

Circling round us like the stars
As a serenade of honking cars
Sing their cacophony song,
We’ll go so sweetly ambling on,

[Verse]

Won’t you meet me in New York City,
In the autumn, when the leaves change,
Because I’ve been told they're so pretty
In Central Park, on a bench by the lake,

[Chorus}

Hand in hand by my side,
Stay with me until the night,
Pours in all around us,
And golden windows all light up,

Circling round us like the stars
As a serenade of honking cars
Sing their cacophony song,
We’ll go so sweetly ambling on,

[Verse]

Won’t you meet me in New York City,
Midway across the Brooklyn Bridge
And bring me a heart so heavy
That you can’t live without,
And we’ll drown it in the Hudson...

Hand in hand by my side
Stay with me until the night
Pours in all around us
