Snow falls on New York
And the lights all go out
All the music suddenly stops
Now there isn’t a single sound
We are no longer rushing around
We stop to smell the air
Take a breath and close our eyes
For a moment if we dare

She pulls us in
And wraps us in her chill
She holds us close
And now we can be still
We’re okay here
We’ll stay here
For a little longer

We embrace this common ground
All a little lost
Somehow it fits
She holds part of all of us
Forever and content

No matter how many times I leave
I always hear her voice calling me
I could be a million miles away
But its here, I'll always have a place

    General Comment"Once a great metro has touched you, influenced you and affected you, you cannot dismiss its bewitchment over you. Towering forests become immense concrete edifices, endless flowing rivers turn into black asphalt roadways and the excitement and pace of life becomes indelible on your spirit like tribal tattoos. The city dweller is a strange animal, full of habits, often elusive and yet ubiquitous. The title tune Urban Angel is the result of that influence. The song is a melancholy lamentation about leaving that place of familiarity for someplace not less, but not the same. It will be missed."
