Ode To NYC

  • I'm wide awake, Empire State of shock through my body
    You can stay on Bleecker Street, Midtown, and on Broadway
    A sea of pink in Central Park forms from trees of blossom
    The Bowery is divine in its own way from top to bottom

    The street fairs, Times Square's a kaleidoscope of color
    The skyline's my valentine, I feel like a first-time lover
    And so it seems it never sleeps, the subway is my haven
    From 42, the Brooklyn loops and Grand Central station

    Fall in love with New York City
    Fall in love with New York City

    World at your feet, the Lower East Side is where I'll go
    We can meet on Rivington, Allen Street, Kat'z on Ludlow
    New Mexico just isn't home, you can forget Nevada
    I get my kicks at West 56th we'll go sing Sinatra

    Fall in love with New York City
    Fall in love with New York City
    Fall in love with New York City
    Fall in love with New York City

    What if I don't wanna leave?
    I'm wrapped in dreams
    I call Houston Street my home

    Oh, what a place, fire escapes paint the urban landscape (its charms)
    In all its charm, with open arms, tells you it's not too late (the night)
    Into the night, a dollar slice I thank God that we met (we are)
    Under the arch light, Washington Square Park at sunset

    Fall in love with New York City
    Fall in love with New York City
    Fall in love with New York City
    Fall in love with New York City Writer/s: Charlie Salt, Jon Donovan, Josh Dewhurst, Myles Kellock, Tom Ogden
