"Harlem" as written by and Philip Parris Lynott....
I have often wondered
What it’s like to be the friend
Of someone who is just like you
And with that I pretend

I would keep this friendship
Though in my life might end
So if you’re all through
Oooooo darling

I had a wish
My dreams came true
But I lost it all
I lost you

I had a hope
My hopes ran high
But I lost it all
When you said goodbye

I have often wondered
Sometimes seldom sober
Sometimes when I need you
Darling you grow colder

I have often wondered
To be so depressed
Oh darling help me now
I must confess

I had a wish
And my dreams came true
But I lost it all
When I lost you

I held a hope
Close to my heart
But I lost it all
When we drifted apart

(Interlude)

Just one wish
It’s just a dream
I’d give it all
To go back again

I held a hope
My hopes ran high
But I lost it all
When you said goodbye

And I have often wondered
What it’s like to be the friend
Of someone who is just like you
And with that I pretend

I would keep this friendship
Though in my life might end
And if you’re all through
Oooooo darling

I held a wish
I held a dream
But I lost it all
When you said goodbye
I held a hope
My hopes ran high

Just one wish
I wished for just one wish

Lost in my loneliness
Drowned in my selfishness
Wrecked in my helplessness
Missing your tenderness
