New York Morning

(With the exceptional that we were sitting one night at the New York City Police Department, we had different opinions of where I should spend the night.
We've been together night and day ever since and that's since 1975, June of '75.
Night and day (day and night))

The first to put a simple truth in words
Binds the world in a feeling all familiar
'Cause everybody owns the great ideas
And it feels like there's a big one 'round the corner

Antenna up and out into New York
Somewhere in all that talk is all the answers
And, oh my giddy aunt, New York can talk
It's the modern Rome and folk are nice to Yoko

Every bone of rivet steel, each corner stone and angle
Jenga jut and rusted water, tower, pillar, postage sign
Every painted line and battered, laddered building in this town
Sings a life of proud endeavor and the best of man can be

Me, I see a city and I hear a million voices
Planning, drilling, welding, carrying their fingers to the nub
Reaching down into the ground stretching up into the sky
Why? Because they can, they did and do, so you and I could live together

Oh my God, New York can talk
Somewhere in all that talk is all the answers
Everybody owns the great ideas
And it feels like there's a big one 'round the corner

Oh my God, New York can talk
Somewhere in all that talk is all the answers
Everybody owns the great ideas
And it feels like there's a big one 'round the corner

The desire in the patchwork symphony
The desire like a distant storm
For love, did it call for me?
'Cause it feels like there's a big one 'round the corner

Oh my God New York can talk
Somewhere in all that talk is all the answers
Everybody owns the great ideas
And it feels like there's a big one 'round the corner

The way the day begins decides the shade of everything
But the way it ends depends on if you're home
For every soul, a pillow at a window, please
In the modern Rome where folk are nice to Yoko
