lyrics

As dappled rays of morning sun stream in through the window
And set ablaze your amber colored hair
I gently kiss your forehead and hope you won’t awaken
You merely stir and go on sleeping there

I have no bags to pack
But I hear the lights of New York calling me
They call my name and sing my songs again
I feel that I must go and answer them
I feel that I must go and answer them

I attempt to write a note as the sunlight subtly goldens
And illuminates the bed in which you lay
I peer out through the curtain lace to the streets of New Orleans
Awakening in the early light of day

But I must board my plane
For I hear the lights of New York calling me
They call my name and sing my songs again
I feel that I must go and answer them
I feel that I must go and answer them

I know that I must leave now, I must exit through the door
With tearful eyes I turn and heave a silent sigh
I gently turn the doorknob and step into the hall
I turn in time to hear you say goodbye

But the lights of New York call me
The lights of New York call me
The lights of New York call me and I feel that I must go and answer them
