  • I'll go back to Manhattan,
    As if nothing ever happened.
    When I cross that bridge,
    It'll be as if this don't exist.
    Have a prince who is waiting,
    And a kingdom downtown.
    I'll go back to Manhattan,
    As if nothing ever happened

    Don't have to speak at all.
    One look in your eyes,
    And I won't have to fall,
    Don't have to speak at all.

    Brooklyn holds you
    And holds my heart too.
    What a fool I was to think
    I could live in both worlds.

    Don't have to speak at all.
    One look in your eyes,
    And I won't have to fall,
    Don't have to speak at all.

    I should go back to Manhattan,
    It's just a train ride away.
    I know nothing about leaving,
    But I know I should do it today. Writer/s: NORAH JONES
