Hot season has come to town
Better get out of here
Better avoid the big breakdown
Talk-dancing through a goodbye
I'd better be on my way
You'd better believe it's time to fly
Manhattan in the rain
All of the living that
One island can contain
Search for you in the windows
How many are there now?
I guess Heaven only knows

You moved past our time at last
Well, I suppose you had the right
The sun may shine behind the clouds
But that doesn't mean I see the light

Construction and traffic jams
I wonder what time it is
I'm starting to wonder where I am
Yellow cab's a welcome sight
It's all that I care about
At this hour of the night
Three brake lamps paint the scene red
Well, it's all behind me now
But what I carry in my head
I miss you; there is no doubt
And I would have you back
If I had that kind of clout

You moved past our time at last
Well, I don't think I want to know
The stars may shine behind the clouds
But that doesn't mean I see the show

Just below these thunderstorms
Buildings play chicken with the moon
Faith and hope, steel and cement
Believe that never might come soon
(Can't come too soon!)
