Manhattan Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

In the city, she wakes, before the break of day,
Cold water on her face, so lonely
Between the glass and knife, she'd like to start a fire,
She'd burn the city down, she'd burn it all for love

Can you see the people, staring at the steeples
Wondering why they're so lonely, so lonely?
Can you hear their voices, joining in a chorus,
Wondering why it's so lovely, so lovely?

In the city, she wakes, the smoke is cleared away,
The fire's just a flame, still breathing,
She made a big debut on Fifth Avenue,
Then the village voice review took the fire from her eyes


We're walking right beside the ones we used to fight,
The flag is waving white, the flag is waving white,
We see for the first time, when we stop the fight,
The flag is waving white, the flag is waving white


Listen to War Radio on, or Jango
