Young In The City (Scialfa Patti)

I ferried my dreams across the water Underneath a faceless moon I woke to find myself uncovered In this dark and dusty room Take me up the wooden stairs Where the windows are open wide There we can watch the city skyline Tremble in the heat waves rolling by And don't the world look pretty When you're young in the city So there I was Ophelia climbing Through these tangled threads of light I was caught Open and bleeding But I was willing to stay the night Take me down to where the buildings Stand empty at our feet Where the dirty Hudson River And the sweet blue oceans meet And don't the world look pretty When you're young in the city Don't you sometimes wonder Why it all goes by so fast I held you in my fingers Now I hold you in my past Once I watched you walk on water Now I watch you walk across the room I always thought wed have forever Now these forevers go by too soon Take me down to the streets below Where the moon and traffic lights Guide us while we go dreaming Thru another sleepless night And don't the world look pretty When you're young in the city
