Wouldn't changed a single word 
Or touch a single note 
Of those old songs those New York Songs 
Of love that we once wrote 

And though it hurts now we're apart 
And different dreams pursue 
Fragments of those songs remain 
In whispered shades of blue 

Old Manhattan melodies 
Echo through my broken heart 
And call me back to you 
Old Manhattan melodies... 
Why Oh why the echoes cry 
I only wish I knew 

Lighthouse shine in Quarter time 
And guide me from this coast 
In case I run around once more 
And meet you or your ghost 

I 've tried I can't turn back the clock 
Your ships too long at sea 
A dream the river stole away 
Oh Misty Melody... 

Old Manhattan melodies... 
Echo through my aching heart 
And tell me you're still true 
Old Manhattan melodies 
Why Oh why the whole world cries 
I only wish I knew 

Old Manhattan melodies... 
Every note a memory 
Some happy and some blue 
Old Manhattan melodies... 
Whisper through my lonely heart 
And call me back to you.
