It doesn't take much these days to trap me
A look, a smile, a touch and you've got me
I fall in love the way folks race cars
Jump from cliffs, build rockets, shoot for the stars
I get the same thrill
Get the same rush to the heart
Follow the east side highway in the dark

It's the danger that gets me
The chance that you'll let me
Get close to your heart
As we walk down the Hudson River
To Battery Park
As we walk down the Hudson River
Afloat in the dark
As I jump from the cliffside
Lit brief by a spark

Such a fool am I, such fools are we
We bring salt to the ocean, fish to the sea
We'll sing songs to our maker
Songs that make me feel young
We'll blaze trails in the woods of our hearts
Before we're done

It's so strange how it gets me
The chance that you'll let me
Try out for the part
As we walk down the Hudson River
To Battery Park
As we walk down the Hudson River
Afloat in the dark
As I jump from the cliffside
Lit brief by a spark

Cast fire into fire
Render hot air unto air
Each to his own bed
Whether barren or shared
It's the fear that directs me
The chance that corrects me
To get close to the part
Where I walk down the river
And up to your heart
As I jump from the cliffside
Lit brief by a spark
