Coles Whalen - Manhattan Lyrics





Manhattan ringtone on your mobile phone
Lisa listens closely to the timbre of my voice
As it rises and it falls
Patchy Christmas sentiment bits and pieces all she gets
But at least I called at all

She is sitting in a crowded subway car
I am standing in a parking lot behind some bar

Look outside all Manhattan is dancing for you
Keep your eyes on those lights
Isn't it like Manhattan is singing just for you
That city will be where I'm not tonight

Christmas season whirlwinds through that city's snowy streets
She sees this every year
A different crowd each night I'll sing and I'll play the Yule Tide Light
For a few bucks and a beer

On a tiny tree she keeps in her apartment corner
Hangs an ornament I sent from the Colorado border

Look outside all Manhattan is dancing for you
Keep your eyes on those lights
Isn't it like Manhattan is singing just for you
That city will be where I'm not tonight

She is sitting in a crowded subway car
I am standing in a parking lot behind some bar

Look outside all Manhattan is dancing for you
Keep your eyes on those lights
Isn't it like Manhattan is singing just for you
That city will be where I'm not tonight
