I went back
Yes I went back to find out
What we did wrong
and I went back
yes I went back to see just
how we could feel so good
in Chicago we seemed to have it all
it was real, it was real

I went back
And I sat by the lake
And looked at the stars
And oh I swear
I remember how much we laughed
And I loved you so
In Chicago I know we had it all
It was real, it was love

Only in Chicago
Love is in the air in Chicago
There's a magic there in Chicago
Our Chicago
Baby, you and I, we tried to take it with us

But you can't go back
?®cause I went back to find out
what we did wrong and now I see
that it wasn't just you
it wasn't just you it was in Chicago
but I'm still in love with you
only you only you, but only in Chicago
