One New York Ago Lyrics

One New York Ago - Rose Cousins

 

The sun was high and we walked slow

 

You liked the heat and I liked the shadow

 

I was brave but you didn't know

On your birthday one New York ago

 

All the lights they never slept

All my love around you crept

 

Our hearts beat and our feet stamped

Through that Sunday in New York that I've kept

 

We might have had the right idea

But it never got off the ground

 

We were close we were there almost

And we watched the sun go down

 

Over the din of that busy town

 

Years move on and I don't deny

 

The choice I made your reasons why

 

And this cluttered heart is a tie that binds me

To the broken New York skyline

 

Yeah we might have had the right idea

But it never got off the ground

 

We were so close we were there almost

And now I can barely hear a sound in you

 

The sun is high and we walk slow

You've gone ahead and I'm flying solo

 

What I crave I will never show

On your birthday one New York ago away

 

 

Hmmm hmmm
