Teardrop windows cryin' in the sky
He is all alone and wonderin' why
Ivory white but feelin' kind of blue
Cause theres no one there to share the view

There's too many vacancies
He's been feelin' oh so empty
And as the sun sets over the sound
He just goes to sleep

Built in boast as the tallest on the coast
He was once the city's only toast
And old postcards was positioned as a star
He was looked up to with fond regard

But in 1962
The needle made it's big debut
And everybody forgot
What it outgrew

He wonders where the workers are
Who once filled every floor
The elevators operate
But don't much anymore
Anymore
Anymore

Teardrop windows cryin' in the sky
How the years have quickly past her by
Gleaming white 'gainst the deepest baby blue
He is lonely just like me and you

Cause there's too many vacancies
He's been feelin' oh so empty
And as the sun sets over the sound
He just goes to sleep

There's too many vacancies
He's been feelin' oh so empty
And when the maids they turn out the lights
He just goes to sleep

    General CommentThis song has something to do with Smith Tower. Not sure if it's a metaphor, or direction about the Tower.
