  • White house on the beach
    My steps down to the sand
    The plane takes off and we
    We are just when it lands

    Waiting in a room
    Where the windows won't open
    Got coffee with no mud
    And my heart still ain't broken
    Still ain't broken
    Still ain't broken

    And the music stops
    And the beat goes on
    And the music stops
    But I'm dancing on

    I won't be home until I've walked
    Every street in New York
    And I'll walk on without your love
    Without your love
    Dancing on til I'm alone
    There's no need to return
    Without your love, until I have walked
    Every street in New York

    Boat goes
    From one island to the next
    An old man drinkin' beer
    Women on the bench

    And the music stops
    And the beat goes on
    And the music stops
    But I'm dancing on

    I won't be home until I've walked
    Every street in New York
    And I'll walk on without your love
    Without your love
    Dancing on til I'm alone
    There's no need to return
    Without your love, until I have walked
    Every street in New York

    Glory when my plane takes off
    Don't know me when I'm home
    Say your prayers with your fingers crossed
    Forget to call fore I go

    If I had to phone tonight
    To say I made you sad
    And though I've fallen in your call and palm

    I won't be home until I've walked
    Every street in New York
    And I'll walk on without your love
    Without your love
    Dancing on til I'm alone
    There's no need to return
    Without your love, until I have walked
    Every street in New YorkWriter/s: DIDO ARMSTRONG, ROLLO ARMSTRONG, GREGORY ALLEN KURSTIN, DAISY DIANA ARMSTRONG
