Sarah Brightman - What More Do I Need? Lyrics

What More Do I Need?

Once I hated this city,Now it can't get me down.Slushy, humid and gritty,What a pretty town.What, thought I, could be duller,More depressing, less gay.Now my favourite colourIs grey.A wall of rain as it turns to sleet,The lack of sun on a one-way street,I love the grime all the time.And what more do I need?My window pane has a lovely view:An inch of sky and a fly or two.Why, I can see half a tree.And what more do I need? The dusk is thick and it's galling;It simply can't be excused.In winter even the falling snow looksUsed.My window pane may not give much light,But I see you, so the view is bright.If I can love you, I'll pay the dirt no heed!With your love, what more do I need?Someone shouting for quiet,Someone starting a brawl,Down the block there's a riot,[What More Do I Need? lyrics on http://www.elyricsworld.com]And I'll buy it all!Listen, now I'm ecstatic,Hold me close and be still.Hear the lovely pneumaticDrill!A subway train thunders through the Bronx,A taxi horn on the corner honks.But I adore ev'ry roar.And what more do I need?I hear a crane making street repairs,A two-ton child running wild upstairs.Steam pipes bang,sirens clang,And what more do I need?The neighbours yell in the summer,The landlord yells in the fall,So loud I can't hear the plumberPound the wall.An aeroplane roars across the bay,But I can hear you as clear as day:You said you love meAbove the sound and speed.With your love, What more do I need?
