IF ONLY

If only, if only

Saw New York standing black and
White
From Goethal's in the distance
Haze plays on lights at night
Wish i could watch and dream tonight

Went to see her days ago
Told her that i'd see her soon
On her block she's flamingo
Wish only i could tell her so

If only, if only, if only
I could tell her so

Cos I watched the moon for hours
Watched it sloely fade away
Til my dreams turned into flowers
If only i could tell her so

If only...

Left the place that sings to me
Someday I'll stay and call it home
Sign still reads ' No Vacancy'
But the whispers keep on calling me

If only....
