New York, Ny Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Well all these people of the city will keep you in the blind spots
Especially when they know that you're out looking to sign dots
I tried to tell this girl how twisted my mind got
But it's her dream to ride the conveyor belt of that sidewalk

She's got the intentions of being number one
But can she handle rejection in the city of no sun?
Where bricks change colors faster than careers do
And few people drive away and like what's in the rear view

New York City's so far away
But I can't wait even for one more day
They say these things come and these things go
But if I don't try I'll never know

She don't care what it takes she knows she's got the ability
And with what her folks make she knows she'd have stability
She just needs to get out there and step toward her validity
She can't keep dying over this 'cause it's just killing me

She's just not used to footsteps diggin' in her chest
High-heeled investments and suits getting undressed
Growing hold and having new recruits become the best
And finding that she's stepped on everyone and no one's left

New York City's so far away
But I can't wait even for one more day
They say these things come and these things go
But if I don't try I'll never know

New York City's so far away
But I can't wait even for one more day
They say these things come and these things go
But if I don't try I'll never know

Well it hurts like walking barefoot on light bulbs
Smashing ideas with open skin
'Til the pearl white drops of blood turn red
And everyone can tell that you've worked hard enough, it's time to go

Go get your map and compass and don't listen to them
And don't think about how much time you're fixing to spend
The dirt only ends when the pavement begins
This is your heart your dream and you're your only friend, so go

You can kick the earth as hard as you want
To show your frustration
Or you can get in your car and kick your foot to the gas
And keep accelerating 'til you hit your destination, so go

New York City's so far away
But I can't wait even for one more day
They say these things come and these things go
But if I don't try I'll never know

New York City's so far away
But I can't wait even for one more day
They say New York City's so far away
But I can't wait even for one more day
