Your song was sung before it had been written
You left such a mark on me
The timing was wrong
The chance was never given

You wrote the words before I could listen
You know you left such a mark on me
And now that you're gone
Everything is missing, missing

It's over
Can't leave this alone
Don't go
I guess I should have known
It's all been taken away
So please just take me away

Reach for the light
And fade to black
Fight for your life
The wall's against your back
We're never gone
You're always here
City of dreams will never disappear

Night in New York
The city's asleep
It's never what it seems to be
You know we had the best intentions
This isn't how it's supposed to be

It's over
Won't leave this alone
Don't go
I know I should have known
It's all been taken away
So please just take me away

Reach for the light
And fade to black
Fight for your life
The wall's against your back
We're never gone
You're always here
City of dreams will never disappear

It's over
So don't go
It's over

Reach for the light
And fade to black
You know you've gotta fight for your life

Reach for the light
And fade to black
Fight for your life
The wall's against your back
We're never gone
You're always here
City of dreams will never disappear

(It's over)
Reach for the light
And fade to black
(So don't go)
Fight for your life
The wall's against your back
(It's over)
We're never gone
You're always here
City of dreams will never disappear
