Take me out on the rooftop
Where the chimneys reach for the sky
And unknown lights stretch out for miles around
And hold me here a while
You know I've been missing you a while
You've got an hour or two, spend it with me tonight

And for that hour we'll sit in silence the city lights warm the sky
And hear the voices of the passers by

So you light another cigarette, refresh the empty the glass
Another hour unfolds as we sit here
And look on a mystery of lives we don't yet know
And wonder which direction this will go
But let's quit the talk about it
It never gets us anywhere
Just round and round in circles chasing time

So sit out on the rooftop
Beneath the starry sky
Content just to be, for tonight

Take me out on the rooftop, for a little time
Let the world slip by for a while
Let the world slip by for a while
Let the world slip by for a while
Let the world slip by for a while
For a while
For a while
