Dear Jeffrey

[VERSE: G D C D CHORUS: C D GDC C D Em / C D GDC C D G]

Dear Dear Jeffrey, oh please tell me
How is New York City?
Do the pretty boys all shine in your light?

Do you stay out all night dancing,
Just to watch the sun come rising?
Have you finally found a lover that feels right?

And have you found a way to fight the feeling with each day,
That says you’re not worth a damn thing, just go die?
And have you found a way to hold the feeling with each night,
That says you’re finally free to love, just go try?

Dear Jeffrey oh please tell me,
You still write poetry
While waiting for the subway home each night.
Are they songs for your lost father,
A sonnet for your new lover
Does it still bring you joy to write?

Like a piece of twine, we co-exist,
Though its been some time since we did twist
And turn the streets of the lower east side
Few and far apart these days,
I hope you know that I do take
Time to let you tumble round my mind.

And I hope you’ve found a way to fight the feeling with each day,
That says you’re not worth a damn thing, just go die.
And I hope you’ve found a way to hold the feeling with each night,
That says you’re finally free to love, just go try.

Dear Dear Jeffrey, oh please tell me
How is New York City?
Do the pretty boys all shine in your light?
