Found on Hourglass.

Now the leaves are blowin'
Down the avenue
And the bells are ringing
The love that I found in you

All around the city
Before the winter snow
The sidewalks are so busy
But I wouldn't even know

'Cause all the people in the whole wide world (whole wide world)
Don't mean nothin' if you ain't got your girl (got your girl)
All the people seem so far away
'Cause I only want you to stay
With me, with me

The summer was unending
I had to see it through
No use in my pretending
I love everything you do

All the people in the whole wide world (whole wide world)
Don't mean nothin' if you ain't got your girl (got your girl)
All the people seem so far away
'Cause I only want you to stay
With me, with me

Dragonflies dipped on the swimming pool
By July I had to keep my cool
(You were shining) You were shining like a living jewel
Inside I knew
Time stood still with you

And all the people in the whole wide world (whole wide world)
Don't mean nothin' if you ain't got your girl (got your girl)
All the people seem so far away
'Cause I only want you to stay
With me, with me
With me, with me
With me, with me...
