"Prayer For Spanish Harlem" as written by and Jackie Greene....
Hot night, Spanish Harlem
Full moon, creeping low
I was standing at the bottom
Your blue window

I come from miles just to hold you
Been so long, baby how you been?
Do you remember what I told you?
Still the same it was back then

I hope it all comes easy, I hope it all feels right
A dozen different candles, line your bed tonight
And I hope its never over, I hope it never ends
But when I go, I hope that you will want me back again

This world that's all around us
It's for real, its not a game
And though hate and greed surrounds us
There's love in my veins

So hush now, do no more talkin'
My heart is heavy; it's a ragged stone
All I want is you with me walkin'
Cause I can't walk alone

And I hope that when we go, they take us someplace good
We can all be kings in common neighborhoods
And I hope we live together, daughter and the son
And I hope they'll take me in when my work upon this
Earth is done

Well I wish you loved in miles,
I wish that you would see
How time says: love expires
But not me, not me
