Sitting there on the purple lawn
U've been there since dawn
Wonderin' Y 've gone
& 4 just 2 long

U'r sorry U gave n2 me
Giving up ur virginity
U'r so afraid that U will B
So alone away from me

Tho said 'd never leave U
This is something that must do
But never will 4get U
Unless U 4get 2 come n2 my dream
Ooh

Leaving 4 New York N the morning
But 'm leaving behind a love extraordinaire
But 'm taking with me the memories of when we made love
& all the other lovin' feelin' that we shared

U'll overcome that misery
Pass up by life's complexity
Picturing ur love around me
Only adds 2 ur agony

U'r undisturbed by the rain
Ur pain must B 2 strong
& even tho U wait N vain
U wait 4 me no matter how, how long

Tho said 'd never leave U
This is something that must do
But never will 4get U
Unless U 4get 2 come n2 my dream
Ooh

'm leaving 4 New York N the morning
But 'm leaving behind a love extraordinaire
But 'm taking with me the memories of when we made love
& all the other lovin' feelin' that we shared

'm leaving 4 New York N the morning
But 'm leaving behind a love extraordinaire
But 'm taking with me the memories of when we made love
& all the other lovin' feelin' that we shared
Oh
