lyrics

I know you know I been thinkin’ about you
You know I know you been thinkin’ about me
And I know that line’s been written a hundred thousand times
Or maybe even a million – but I don’t care

Been dreamin’ of you in my arms
While this side of the country’s been losin’ all its charms
And you know I love this city so but how I got the urge to go
And find you where you are
Oh I think I’ll leave New York just for a spell

I’ve done it before but not quite the same
It’s seeping in fast revealing its name
Keeping us alive and keeping us awake
Yours is a drug I’d gladly take

I know you know I been thinkin’ about you
You know I know you been thinkin’ about me
And I know that line’s been written a hundred thousand times
Or maybe even a million – but I don’t care

That face I’ve been tryin’ not to miss
Keeps pushin’ its way in with a force I can’t resist
Now I hear it won’t be long before the winds blow you back to the eastern shore
Well lucky lucky me
Oh suddenly New York’s ten times as swell

I glance outside into the night
And I am struck by the light
That was the blanket of our fun
Make way for our day in the sun

I know you know I been thinkin’ about you
You know I know you been thinkin’ about me
And I know that line’s been written a hundred thousand times
Or maybe even a million – but I don’t

Care, you see I will happily
Teach you to triumphantly
Break the rules but that is not all
Baby we’ll break the law

I know you know I been thinkin’ about you
You know I know you been thinkin’ about me
And I know that line’s been written a hundred thousand times
Or maybe even a million – but I don’t care

I’ll just keep strollin’ along
And every so often I'll listen to your songs
And your blue-gray eyes come back to me with all the lovely memories
We made in those wee hours
Oh I hope that New York treated you well
