lyrics

New York City

Staring out the window, onto New York City streets
Staying in bed all morning, sending out for things to eat

I don’t know why you never tried to reach the sky
Reach up to the satellites

Stayed on West of 57th, so we could be near the park
The days went on forever, at night we really hit the spark

I don’t know why you never tried to reach the sky
Reach up to the satellites
We got so high so why did you have to bring it down
Bring it crashing to the ground

But you can’t take these streets from me
What New York City means to me

I think I nearly lost my mind
When you pulled me down the rabbit hole
I think I nearly lost my soul
But you can’t take these streets from me
What New York City means to me

I don’t know why you never tried to reach the sky
Reach up to the satellites
We got so high so why did you have to bring it down
Bring it crashing to the ground

But you can’t take these streets from me
What New York City means to me
