  • In New York
    City back
    When I was young
    And colorful
    I saw a girl
    I doubled back
    Was she the one?

    Lady Black
    Cigarette?
    She rolls her own
    I should've known.
    Would you care
    To come and talk
    To me alone?

    Your smile seems so familiar
    Like maybe we'd met before
    If we had, girl, I was a fool to forget.
    The deep end sounds inviting
    And she s already in
    Should I stay dry?
    Or should I get wet?

    My hotel
    Two o'clock
    Dizzy from
    All the fun
    Said goodnight
    And Lady Black
    Was on the run.
    Called her back
    Later on
    But she was al-
    Ready done
    Bloody red lioness
    I should've known.

    When did this go one sided?
    I didn't fall in alone
    Sometimes I wish I'd never met you at all.
    If love goes unrequited
    Can we really call it love?
    Do I hang on?
    Or should I let go?
    Should I let go?

    Your smile seems so familiar
    Like maybe we'd met before
    If we had, girl, I was a fool to forget.
    The deep end sounds inviting
    And she s already in
    Should I stay dry?
    Or should I get wet?
    Do I hang on?
    Or should I let go?
    Should I let go? Publisher: ROUGH TRADE PUBLISHING
