Can you hear them?
The helicopters?
I'm in New York
No need for words now
We sit in silence
You look me
In the eye directly
You met me
I think it's Wednesday
The evening
The mess we're in
and ohhh...
(The city sunset over me)
Ohhh...
(The city sunset over me)

Night and day
I dream of
Making love
To you now baby
Love making
On screen
Impossible dream
And I have seen
The sunrise
Over the river
The freeway
Reminding of
This mess we're in
And ohhh...
(The city sunset over me)
Ohhh...
(The city sunset over me)

Ohhh...
(The city sunset over me)
Ohhh...
(The city sunset over me)

What were you wanting?
(What was it you wanted?)
I just want to say
(I just want to say don't ever change)
Don't ever change now baby
(And thankyou)
And thank you
(I don't think we will meet again)
I don't think we will meet again
(And we must leave now)
And you must leave now
(Before the sun rises over the skycrapers)
Before the sunrise
Above skyscrapers
(And the city landscape comes into being, the sweat on my skin)
The sin and
This mess we're in
And ohhh...
(The city sunset over me)
Ohhh...
(The city sunset over me)
Ohhh...
(The city sunset over me)
Ohhh...
(The city sunset over me)
