A Close Call

Look…
A moment, the bar
What is it they say?
Everything happens for a reason
Only sometimes is it revealed
This time it’s happening
The girl, the boy, the call

Drink a little for your idols
Spill some for your ancestors
Say a sweet something for your sister

This is my time
Can I join?
The next moment awaits upstairs
A suite for the night

Oh, New York
Tonight and forever more
One more second until the moment fades
Subway dreams reveal hidden cracks in the seams
Lost in fantasy, now awake
