  • Lyrics
  • The days were long and the nights so cold
    The pages turn and the tale unfolds
    He left me for another lady
    She stood so tall and she never slept
    There was not one moment he could regret
    He left me for another lady

    He took my hand one day and told me
    He was leaving
    Me disbelieving
    And I I I I I I I I
    Had to let him go

    Her name was New York, New York
    And she took his heart away oh my
    Her name was New York, New York
    She had poisoned his sweet mind
    Mmmm

    The wolves they howled for my lost soul
    I fell down a deep black hole
    He left me for another lady
    She poured the drinks and she poured the power
    Diamond girl who could talk for hours
    He left me for another lady

    Now I am on my own
    He told me he was leaving
    And I was pleading
    And I I I I I I I I
    Had to let him go

    Her name was New York, New York
    And she took his heart away oh my
    Her name was New York, New York
    She had poisoned his sweet mind

    The greatest times
    I don't want to hear it
    Your new laughter lines
    I don't want to hear it
    The new found friends she introduced you to
    I don't wanna know them I just want to be with you
    Please don't make me go to
    New York

    New York
    She took your heart away oh my
    Her name was New York, New York
    She poisoned your sweet mind

    Her name was New York, New York
    And she took your heart away oh my
    Her name was New York, New York
    She had poisoned your sweet mind

    She poisoned your sweet mindWriter/s: JODI MARR, PALOMA FAITH
