“Another Lonely Night in New York” is a 1983 single by the late British singer-songwriter Robin Gibb from his second solo album How Old Are You?. The song managed to chart in several countries in Europe, reaching the Top 20 in Germany and Switzerland, peaking at #16 and #19, respectively. It was not released in the United States as a single.

It was recorded around October to November 1982. The song’s intro bears only minimal resemblance to Foreigner‘s 1981 hit “Waiting for a Girl Like You“, before indulging in its own, time-space specific melodic structure in full force.

The song was re-recorded for Gibb’s 2003 album Magnet.

Lyrics:

Baby, oh no, I’ve been stuck here.
I’ve been searching so long.
Baby don’t go, millions of people were wrong.
In the dark of the cold light of day,
I will still be here.
If my heart and my soul had their way,
you would still be here.

Another lonely night in New York.
The city of dreams just keeps on getting me down.
‘Cause my baby’s no longer around
and my feeling can never be found.

Another lonely night in New York
and my sorry eyes are looking out on the world.

Baby, you said, a guy like me was way out of line.
And knowing today, your leaving was a question of time.
In the mist of a sweet summer rain, you will find me here.
Should the sparkle of stars lose their way,
I’ll be holding near.

Another lonely night in New York.
The city of dreams just keeps on getting me down.
‘Cause my baby’s no longer around
and my feelings can never be found.

Another lonely night in New York.
And my sorry eyes are looking out on the world.
In the dark of the cold light of day,
you will find me here.
If my heart and my soul had their way,
you would still be here.

Another lonely night in New York.
And I’m just a soul in the heart of the city.
Just another lonely night in New York.
The city of dreams just keeps on getting me down.
Just another lonely night in New York.
