Walking down 5th avenue

In the sweltering heat

The hot city sidewalk

Melting under our feet


We enter the high line

Filled with wanderlust

I can see all around

Me’s and you’s and us


Then you go your way

And I go mine

I get a little jealous

Of the treasures you find


As I get closer

I can feel your embrace

I light up like a candle

When I see the smile on your face


Your feet fall gently

Over the end of the bed

My mind flows gently

Thoughts of you in my head


One more night

Of unending ecstasy

We’ll be back again someday



Skies filled with scrapers

Streets filled with dreams

Colliding together

When the red light turns to green
