Song Lyrics

The city lights the Hudson
Giving cold shoulders
You think falling’s easier now
Now that I’m older

But darling, life’s hard without you
And I need you back
Let me be your friend
Let me have that chance
Let me sing a song
Let me play along
Let me be
Let me be strong

City girl dreams meets Jordans
And a brand new face
But it’s hard to be brave
In this restless places 

But darling, life’s hard without you
And I need you back
Let me be your friend
Let me have that chance
Let me sing a song
Let me play along
Let me be
Let me be strong

Baby look at me
You can be strong too
Give love a chance
There’s no need to be blue

But darling, life’s hard and you
You can use this song
Let it soothe your heart
Let it play the part
Let us sing this song
Let us play along
Let us be
Let us be strong
