I was staring through a telescope at night
At a large light in the sky
It's spinning lights reminded me of you
A star spinning in orbit, lighting up the sky
Or maybe it was not a star at all

I was standing by the Hudson River's edge at night
Looking out across the Jersey shore
At a neon light spelling out some cola's name
And I thought your name should be dancing
Beamed from satellites, larger than any billboard in Times Square

Tell it to your heart, please don't be afraid
I'm the one who loves you in each and every way
Tell it to your heart, please don't be afraid
New York City lovers

Tell it to your heart
(Tell it to your heart, please don't be afraid, tell it to your heart)
(Tell it to your heart, please don't be afraid, tell it to your heart)

I'm on the roof, it's 5 a.m. I guess I couldn't sleep
And I see this spinning light that I saw last week
Maybe I should wake you up but by then it might be gone
You never know what you see when you look up in the sky

I ran outside down a darkened street listening to my boot heels click
My leather jacket squeaked I needed a cigarette
When I turned the corner my spinning light was in the street
They were filming a commercial on TV

Tell it to your heart, please don't be afraid
We're no teenage movie that ends in tragedy
Tell it to your heart, please don't be afraid
New York City lovers

Tell it to your heart, tell it to your heart
(Tell it to your heart, please don't be afraid, tell it to your heart)
(Tell it to your heart, please don't be afraid, tell it to your heart)
(Tell it to your heart, please don't be afraid, tell it to your heart)
(Tell it to your heart, please don't be afraid, tell it to your heart)
