Song Description

Music to cross the George Washington Bridge by... beautiful piano work opens and closes the song. Sweet acoustic guitar work supports lush vocals.

Lyrics

In the gray early morning I drive down the road
To the bridge over the river to the city far from home
The toll booth takes my money and the city takes my soul
And I see the river kissing the city in the dawn

She dances round his elbow, he's turning on her hip
Her steel blue waters touch the stone of his skin
The city's tossing spears at the sky all day
Kneels low to the river before she flows away

The river and the city are kissing in the dawn
The mountains are her memory but this city's where she's borne
Lovers different as traveling rain and stone
But the river and the city are kissing in the dawn

The Courtesy Motel in Jersey's my home
Near the Highway Four divider and the discount stores
Though we're very different we don't have to be alone
As the river and the city kiss in the dawn

Is right always right and is wrong always wrong
Can the manmade and the natural ever really get along
Maybe so will you and I before too long
Like the river and the city kissing in the dawn

The river and the city are kissing in the dawn
The mountains are her memory but this city's where she's borne
Lovers different as traveling rain and stone
But the river and the city are kissing in the dawn

Faithful is the river to her city near the sky
Before she dives into the sea she hugs the city line
Before she dives into the sea a dream of God must fly
Faithful is the river to her city near the sky

The river and the city are kissing in the dawn
The mountains are her memory but this city's where she's borne
Lovers different as traveling rain and stone
But the river and the city are kissing in the dawn
