lyrics

V.1
Everyone hates Times Square, but there’s comfort in the lights
Everyone hates tourists, but I love the awe in their eyes
It’s like they see the wonder that everyone forgot
I ignore their shuffling feet because I adore their thoughts

C
New York City, I’ve been running around like crazy
Desperately trying to breathe in everything you’re offering to me
Everything is crystal clear as you whisper in my ear
“Oh, you have to be here”

V.2
Live here long enough, you’ll become hard and jaded, or so they say
But I don’t think I could forget how I felt my first day
It’s like these mean streets opened up their arms and let me in
As if trying to say “It’s time for your life to begin” in

C
New York City, I’ve been running around like crazy
Desperately trying to breathe in everything you’re offering to me
Everything is crystal clear as you whisper in my ear, oh

B
And when the stage is set and when the lights go down
And a silence falls upon every person in the crowd
I know... I’ve found my home

C.2
New York City, I’ve been running around like crazy
Desperately trying to breathe in everything you’re offering to me
Everything is crystal clear, as you whisper in my ear
“There's no reason to fear, oh, you have to be here”
