New York's sons and daughters from all corners of the globe create the new capital city of the world, where their questions can be freely asked and their longings pursued if they dare dream.
My Interpretation Because of the context of the song in Working Girl, I've always interpreted this song as ironic. Rather than celebrating the arrival of Jews on the shores of NY, for me, it's a comment about how big finance has become the new religion. I see the inspirational intensity as a reflection of bloviating gazillionaires. My Interpretation I agree with ccjockey, that the New Jerusalem may be a promised land.

The Jewish undertone may be due to Carly Simon having a Jewish father, and as a result most likely a Jewish upbringing, but I dont think it is purely Jewish. I think the lyrics relate to all of us. New Jerusalem being as poignant to Christians as Jews. The sons and daughters may well be the children of the land country , and are coming through a fog of dissent and trouble and the future is up to them to choose. The future being the Promised Land New Jerusalem. She herself yearns to start, or be involved. Maybe she even compares herself to Moses who delivered the people to the promised land as she brings us to this but could not enter.
General Comment I don't even really like Carly Simon, but this is an incredibly powerful and uplifting song. Her voice is so strong and clear, as are the lyrics. Flag fifi on April 10, General Comment Can you explain this more, please?

Let the River Run
We the great and small stand on a star and blaze a trail of desire through the dark'ning dawn. Come run with me now, the sky is the color of blue you've never even seen in the eyes of your lover. We're coming to the edge, running on the water, coming throught the fog, your sons and daughters. Carly Simon Lyrics provided by SongLyrics.
