New York

Album: MASSEDUCTION (2017)
  • New York isn't New York without you, love
    So far in a few blocks to be solo

    And if I called you from First Avenue
    Well, you're the only motherfucker in the city who can handle me

    New love wasn't true love, back to you love
    So much for a home run with some blue bloods

    If I last-strawed you on 8th Avenue
    Well, you're the only motherfucker in the city who can stand me

    I have lost a hero
    I have lost a friend
    But for you, darling
    I'd do it all again
    I have lost a hero
    I have lost a friend
    But for you, darling
    I'd do it all again

    New York isn't New York without you, love
    Too few of our old crew left on Astor

    So, if I trade our hood for some Hollywood
    Well, you're the only motherfucker in the city who would
    Only motherfucker in the city who would
    Only motherfucker in the city who'll forgive me

    I have lost a hero
    I have lost a friend
    But for you, darling
    I'd do it all again
    I have lost a hero
    I have lost a friend
    But for you, darling
    I'd do it all again Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
