She sings against an olive green background.

She sits in a chair  in her apartment and stares at her view of New York City at night. Below, a young man walks down the sidewalk. By a park, a young woman lifts her sunglasses and then walks away. The young man and his friends hang out by a fountain. The young woman talks with her friends and they ask her to join them.

She steps into the elevator and presses the button for the basement.

The young man and his friends walk through the turnstiles. She gazes into the mirror inside the elevator. The young woman hangs up the pay phone at the booth. He and his friends wait to cross the street. The young man listens and then hangs up the phone.
