Young in the City (Album Version)

Patti Scialfa

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
Tthrough 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
We'd 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
