As I walk 42nd Street
Empty people's empty glances I meet
Do they expect to find - Along with some piece of mind
That there's someone out there - In this big city
Someone out there - Someone for me

Or is everyone alone in New York?

As the subway cars I ride
Holding on through the shifting tide
The people all look away - But in their silence they pray
That there's someone out there - In this big city
Someone out there - Someone for me

Or is everyone alone in New York?

At night the man by her side
Pretends to sleep but his eyes are wide
And as the morning comes one nights work
so quickly undone
There are so many to hold - In this big city
But when will I find - Someone for me

Or is everyone alone in New York?
