Barry Manilow - Only In Chicago Lyrics




I went back
Yes, I went back to find out
What we did wrong and
I went back
Yes, I went back to see just
How we could feel so good
In Chicago
We seemed to have it all
It was real
It was love
I went back
And I sat by the lake
And looked at the stars
And oh I swear
I remember how much we laughed
And I loved you so
In Chicago
I know we had it all
It was real
It was love

Only in Chicago
Love is in the air
In Chicago
Our Chicago
There's a magic there
In Chicago
Our Chicago
Baby, you and I
We tried to take it with us
But you can't go back
'cause I went back to find out
What we did wrong and
Now I see
That it wasn't just you
It wasn't just me
It was Chicago
But I'm still in love with you
Only you
Only you

But only in Chicago
Chicago
Chicago
Chicago
Chicago
Only in Chicago
Love is in the air
In Chicago
There's a magic there
In Chicago
Our Chicago
Baby, you and I
We tried to take it with us
But you can't go back
'cause I went back to find out
What we did wrong and
Now I see
That it wasn't just you
It wasn't just me
It was Chicago
But I'm still in love with you

Only you
Only you
Only you
Only you
Only you
Only you
Only you
Only you
But only in Chicago,Chicago
Only in Chicago,Chicago
Only in Chicago,Chicago

  2. Casey Delachante

    So great to hear again. Thanks for posting! I remember the fan club Chicago convention 1983. We played this song over and over! Great memories. 🤗

    I believe this was a B side to one of his 45’s I owned. Still sounds great nearly 40 years later
