In my dreams we fly away from all the palm trees of this place and the smell of its decay
I can taste the clouds and my wings can carry me to your window
Where you will hold me in your arms and kiss me softly as you stroke my cheek
And say “Oh my angel, you hold my heart, I’ve been dreaming of you like you have me
Can you touch my skin and lay your kisses on my cheeks
And to Manhattan sweep me away?”

No more, no less
In pools of water after all the rain has left I see your gaze
No more, no less
I’m longing for a Neverland where I can make you oh so happy

In my dreams we fly away from all the pain and school bell rings
To a city that never sleeps and I can see you smile all day
And I can show you just how beautiful complications can be
From the roof top I can lean in close and whisper in your ear:
“Can you see, its not the same, the stars are spelling out your name”
And the moon can only frown because it will never be as beautiful as you

I’m dreaming of Manhattan
Dreaming of where we are so in love
I can make you oh so happy

    General Commenti like to kinda think it's like an affair to remember you know....
    they meet in manhattan and fall in love and he just wants to get back to that.
    i'm so wrong i know but it's still kinda sweet
