[Verse]


C                        Am7
I'm staring through a telescope at night
C                       Am7
at a large light in the sky
C                       Am7         F
Its spinning lights reminded me of you
Fm                             C   G   C/E
A star spinning in orbit lighting up the sky
Dm                            G
Or maybe it was not a star at all


[Verse]


C                           Am7
I'm standing by the Hudson River's edge at night
C                           Am7
looking out across the Jersey shore
C                    Am7                F
At a neon light spelling out some cola's name
Fm 
And I thought your name should be dancing
C      G     C/E
beamed from satellites
Dm                            G
Larger than any billboard in Times Square


[Chorus]

                F         F     G      C/E
Tell it to your heart, please don't be afraid
                 G                       F
I'm the one who loves you in each and every way
                F         F     G        C/E
Tell it to your heart, please don't be afraid
                Dm    G
New York City lovers

C                                 Am7
Tell it to your heart, please don't be afraid
C                    Am7   
Tell it to your heart


[Verse]


C                       Am7
I'm up on the roof, it's 5 a.m.
C                       Am7
I guess I couldn't sleep
C                       Am7                F
And I see this spinning light that I saw last week
Fm                                    C    G     C/E
Maybe I should wake you up but by then it might be gone
Dm                                            G
You never know what you see when you look up in the sky


[Verse]


C                       Am7
I ran outside down a darkened street
C                       Am7
listening to my boot heels click
C                      Am7                 F
My leather jacket squeaked, I needed a cigarette
Fm                                        C     G     C/E
When I turned the corner my spinning light was in the street
Dm                               G
They were filming a commercial on TV


[Chorus]


                F         F     G      C/E
Tell it to your heart, please don't be afraid
                 G                       F
We're no teenage movie that ends in tragedy
                F         F     G        C/E
Tell it to your heart, please don't be afraid
                Dm    G
New York City lovers


[Chorus]


                F         F     G      C/E
Tell it to your heart, please don't be afraid
                 G                       F
I'm the one who loves you in each and every way
                F         F     G        C/E
Tell it to your heart, please don't be afraid
                Dm    G
New York City lovers

C                                 Am7
Tell it to your heart, please don't be afraid
Am7               C                       
Tell it to your heart
