City of Silver Dreams

The windows in New York City
All dressed up with ribbons and smiles
Snow covers the park like a carpet
Bells on white carriages roll by in style.
St. Patrick's Cathedral’s all lit up
When the doors open wide I can see
All those candles are burning inside
Looks like somebody's birthday party to me.

Snowy night
Catch the light
Shining bright
Angels sing
Here below
Children know
Faces glow
Bells they ring
Through a city of silver dreams

It’s like this whole town swallowed some magic
Taxi horns are singin’ away
They say that the city will change you
But it ain’t me that’s been changin’ from what I can tell
