lyrics

From a window, sound of strings
Up streets an echo, lovebirds in a fling
Who knows what lies beyond that door down to the street?
Or what the day might have in store, oh there’s possibilities
It’s New York in spring…

There’s easy music, birds in the trees
The blossoms blooming, careless and free
And when the evening comes the shadows are cool as stone
There are a million ways to make a secret city all your own
And what will it bring?
New York in spring…

I had a lover once who said she couldn’t follow me here
Oh the people are much too rude, and the cost of living’s much much too dear
Maybe she was hiding something she didn’t really wanna hide
But how could you not ever have lived here and ever said you’d truly been alive
In New York in Spring…

La di dee dah, di dee dah, di dee dee dah dah
La di dee dah, di dee dah, di dee dee dah dah
La di dee dah, di dee dah, di dee dee dah dah
La di dee dah, di dee dah, di dee dah , di dee dee dah dah

Walk through the park, babies running around
When it gets dark you head downtown
Maybe sit out in a quiet café with the starlight to read
Or in your own place windows open wide, so you can feel the gentle breeze
Of New York in Spring…

I had a friend once who said that he was going away
In a boat south of France, or a bay down in Mexico way
Ah, maybe we was shot with something he didn’t know how to grieve
But I know it gets hot, but honestly people would you ever wanna leave
New York in Spring…

Come the summer, they pack and leave
Come the winter, hole up and freeze
But if there’s a place like this elsewhere, I don’t wanna know
From Inwood Park to Washington Square, you know this city is my home
And it’s in spring…
New York in Spring…


La di dee dah, di dee dah, di dee dee dah dah
La di dee dah, di dee dah, di dee dee dah dah
La di dee dah, di dee dah, di dee dee dah dah
La di dee dah…
