From the shores of the Mediterranean
All the way to New York City
It's bloody expensive to livin' at town
And I found out the hard way
But I almost had it all

Was it Washington Square
Or the way you wore you hair?
Was it Central Park
Or kissing after dark?

Guess I'll never know
Not sure I even care
But my heart will always live
With you and me there

But I can't afford to live in New York City
And she can't afford to leave
I can't afford to live in New York City
But she can't afford to leave
But God, I miss her

Was it the Sea Port in June
Or your face by the moon?
Was it Soho's charm
Or you and I, arm in arm?

Was it the 6 train uptown
Or true love that I found?
It all blends into one
When I think of you now

And I can't afford to live in New York City
But she can't afford to leave
I can't afford to live in New York City
But she can't afford to leave

Well, I know that
A promise is to keep
But money's tight
And I've been losing sleep

Old Man Circumstance
Will have his way, it's true
Ooh, what I wouldn't give
To stay here with you

But I can't afford to live in New York City
She can't afford to leave
I can't afford to live in New York City
But she can't afford to leave

And I've never been good
With good-byes
But good-byes
Are all I have

And I can't afford to live in New York City
And I'm pulling out of here
Is there anything that I can say
To make you change your mind
