I watched you fly on the rides at Coney Island
The wind was biting
The sky was red burnt
You looked just like birds overhead

You took polaroids of a man proposing
Everyone was applauding
Arcade machines sang on
As night turned to dawn then to light

I was weak and tired
The night before was a blur
The taxi drove too fast
The skyline rushing past our window
But oh! How we danced!
To the country band
We drank and we swayed
You told everyone it’s your birthday
Then we walked home to Brooklyn
And both of us were freezing
And I asked what you were doing with your life

I see you fading and I live across an ocean
I talked you out of staying but I don’t know when you’ll come back
You said don’t worry you don’t need anybody
You’re living out your dreams in New York

The sun came up behind us and everything turned to rust
And birds sang to us as we walked
And I know you’ll be alright
You say I can’t let things lie
I know you’re right you’re right
