There’s no one in Brooklyn
No one but you
All these people passing by me
They don’t know me like you do
A sea of empty faces I am swimming through
No, there’s no one in Brooklyn

Got nothing to tell you
Nothing to say
If I open my mouth
It would give my heart away
But I can’t belong to you
'Cause I’m in love with yesterday
When there was no one in Brooklyn

No one in Brooklyn’s wondering when I’m coming home
No one’s asking where I’m going
It took a crowd to teach me how it feels to be alone
But I guess there’s strength in knowing

There’s no one in Brooklyn
No one but me
On an empty street at midnight
Wondering where you want to be
It’s anywhere but here
But I don’t know how to leave
‘Cause then there’d be
No one
In Brooklyn
