Night Song - Barry Manilow

The city is singin' its night song
A city of shadows and fading starlight
Mixed with bar light

The empty streets echo the night song
A melody I used to think was only for the lonely

Night song I hear you
Now as the night disappears
But this time your blues
Is music to my ears

The rumble of a train
The rustle of the wind
The rhythm of the footsteps
The blarin' of a horn
The murmur of a voice
The echo of a siren
Night song!

You used to find me cryin' in my beer
Now you remind me tomorrow she'll be here
She'll be here!
Oh, night song

You sing of a train from New Orleans
And deep in the music I hear her hummin'
Now she's comin' home!

The city is singin' its night song
