Hudson River

This is a song lyric for a book Cilla wrote:

Hudson River

There’s bright sunshine on the Hudson
Winter winds are blowing chill
Cold hard frost reflects the sunlight
And I’m longing for you still

Chorus  Our best dreams can be so empty
And our longings give no thrill
Love is met with cold indifference
And I’m longing for you still

There’s a thick for on the Hudson
Mists are hanging grey and still
Cold hard frost reflects the lamplight
And I’m longing for you still

Chorus

There’s an oil slick on the Hudson
Slimy streaks clear waters kill
Rainbow tint reflects the bright light
And I’m longing for you still

Chorus

There’s cold moonlight on the Hudson
I had wanted you until
Cold hard heart reflected love’s light
Yet I’m longing for you still

Chorus

There’s ice floating on the Hudson
Winter winds are blowing chill
Cold hard frost reflects the warm light
And I’m longing for you still

Chorus

Cold hard frost reflects the warm light
And I’m longing for you still

I am longing for you still

Longing, longing for you still
