See Chevy's aqua-planing The screech of tyre on track Cicades in the maple Will hum till night is black I miss the morning bagel Fresh coffee in a cup The beaches on the weekend Sending blood pressure up I miss my New York days My New York ways I miss 'em all I miss my New York days The steamy heat of summer The clear and endless sky The ride to Bear Mountain A Channel 13 drive Taconic Parkway gilded Luminous in the fall No sleep without the a/c My God I miss it all Working in Greemwich C.T High rollers everywhere Armed cops on traffic duty No Ma'am you can't cross there The A and P for shopping Emporium if flush Life in Westchester County I could not get enough

Sweet,sweet,sweet,sweet love You're gonna feel it Sweet,sweet sweet sweet love You're gonna need it This emotion it will cause you pain You best avoid it But there really is no hiding place You can't destroy it By embracing it with open arms You're at the mercy of its charms Sweet sweet sweet sweet love You're gonna feel it If you want your life without Complications Cacell your subscription to Loves obligations They're creeping in the back door now You must not let your guard go down Sweet sweet sweet sweet love You're gonna feel it

I'd like to hold you in a warm embrace And leave you with a smile upon your face Hold me Just hold me Hold me till the day is done People say the little things in life most A knowing look or a winning smile could lay my ghosts Hold me Just hold me Hold me till the day is done Just hold me till the day is done Hold me till the war is won And I will tell you all about my Tell you all about my Tell you all about my love

Old theatrical posters Cover walls that are older There she sits Thumbing programs to bits Candles lit Scans the pages for her name Fading remnants of her fame Kept alive Though her still active mind Is on rewind Her lifes a play All the world is her stage Her lifes a play A leading role to be played On an overstuffed sofa Too much gin in her soda Wearing lace Though she still paints her face There's no grace Theres no man to romance her Though she once loved an actor She gave up him Now she ruefully grins At her sins Her lifes a play All the world is a stage Her lifes a play A leading role to be played When she toured the country All her friends thought her lucky With a frown As the curtain comes down She wonders where they all are now Dreams of making a comeback Once again meet her public She cannot face Time has quickened it's pace She's lost the race

Learn to decipher the code Don't let your values erode Sharing opinion is fine But hearing it all of the time In a backroom In a vacuum In the first congregational church of the mind The first congregational church of the mind You're leaving your heart And your IQ behind In the first congregational church of the mind Airwaves deliver the news Political shades, tints and hues Wearing you down by degrees Bringing you down to your knees Subscribe now And don't doubt The first congregational church of the mind The first congregational church of the mind You 're leaving your heart And your IQ behind In the first congregational church of the mind And you're leving it there for good And it wont come back like it should If you open up your heart You' ll feel better Right from the start

Have you had a dream Where you are being chased And there's no way out That you can find You wake to find Worries on your mind Have you had a dream Like Me I have a dream With a recurring theme Loves that are lost Never to be found I panic I cry Uneasy in my mind Did you have a dream Like me I'm shaken Stirred It's really so absurd My sorrows I drown Till night time comes around I once had a dream But now in ruins it lies All that we wish Is subject to change As time go's by My dream begins to die Did you have a dream Like me
