New York

lyrics

I’m torn between these broken days
With our wide eyed wonder gazing through, the New York City haze
Start out with a broken dream
Like an empty train full of hope, running on steam

We built what we built with our four hands
With a rusty hammer and torn up screws, planting in the sand
But I hold yours when you hold mine
And the broken glass beneath our feet will ease away with time

Drown my sorrow down with your cares
To the depths of god knows where
This is our home
Hold me close for heavens sake
Not for this forsaken place
Hold me again

When words get short and looks get sharp
Your hungry eyes and lavish lips, fall silent in the dark
But I don’t need your words to hear
Though the Bering Sea rocked you and me, smooth water is near

Drown my sorrow down with your cares
To the depths of god knows where
This is our home
Hold me close for heavens sake
Not for this forsaken place
Hold me again

Hold me again
Hold me close for heavens sake
Not for this forsaken place
Hold me again

Take my breath, take it strong
Take my arms and build your home
Take my side don’t face this alone
Take my heart until it’s gone
Take my heart until it’s gone
