New York Lyrics

by Snow Patrol

If you were here beside me
Instead of in New York
If the curve of you is curved on me
I'd tell you that I loved you
Before I ever knew you
Because I love the simple thought of you

If our hearts are never broken
then there's no joy in the mending
There's so much this hurt can teach us both
Though there's distance and there's silence
Your words have never left me
They're the prayer that I say every day

Come on
Come out
Come here
Come here
x4

The lone neon nights and the ache of the ocean
And the fire that was starting to spark
I miss it all from the love to the lightning
And the lack of it snaps me in two

If you were here beside me
Instead of in New York
In the arms you said you'd never leave
I'd tell you that it's simple
And it was only ever us
There is nowhere else that I belong

Come on
Come out
Come here
Come here
x4

The lone neon nights and the ache of the ocean
And the fire that was starting to spark
I miss it all from the love to the lightning
And the lack of it snaps me in two

Just give me a sign
There's an end and a beginning
To the quiet chaos driving me mad

The lone neon nights and the waltz of the ocean
And the fire that is starting to go out.
