When you get caught between the Moon and New York City

Tomorrow I am flying home to my favourite place on earth....I'm looking forward to long solitary walks in Central Park, gazing at the swans and overarching cherry blossom trees, indulging in existentialist rumination or just enjoying the beauty, day dreaming, content to just be....and not thinking much at all...

New York is exactly as is shown in Sex & The City and Breakfast At Tiffany's...every bit as exciting, thrilling and glamorous; Saks Fifth Avenue, Times Square, all glass and neon interspersed with regal old buildings,....and yet there is nature and so much romance too.....horses trotting on the busy streets...the Empire State Building and imageries from An Affair To Remember.  

I have always been in love with Manhattan, ever since I was a wee child watching in awe a documentary on NYC. The first time I set foot here many years back with my mom, reality matched that childhood fantasy. Been back to Gotham many times since, and it just never gets old. It was at the very top of my list of places I wanted to spend forever in. It still is....


There's this old song that really epitomises how I feel about NYC.....it's hopelessly romantic...  

Arthur's Theme

Once in your life you find her
Someone that turns your heart around
And next thing you know you're closing down the town
Wake up and it's still with you
Even though you left her way across town
Wondering to yourself, "Hey, what've I found?"

When you get caught between the Moon and New York City
I know it's crazy, but it's true
If you get caught between the Moon and New York City
The best that you can do ......
The best that you can do is fall in love
Arthur he does as he pleases
All of his life, he's mastered choice
Deep in his heart, he's just, he's just a boy
Living his life one day at a time
And showing himself a really good time
Laughing about the way they want him to be

When you get caught between the Moon and New York City
I know it's crazy, but it's true
If you get caught between the Moon and New York City
The best that you can do .....
The best that you can do is fall in love

When you get caught between the Moon and New York City
I know it's crazy, but it's true
If you get caught between the Moon and New York City
The best that you can do .....
The best that you can do is fall in love

- Christopher Cross
