Soothe Me

  • Maybe I should wander
    Through these streets a little longer
    Hey New York City
    Won't you welcome me back home?
    And darling I love you
    But I swear that I'll be gone
    By the time you figure out what you want

    Maybe I should wander
    Through my solitude a little longer
    Turn your head now sailor
    Well I used to be so much stronger
    How in the hell did I get here?
    In this city so alone
    Oh sometimes life seems so long

    [Chorus]
    You can't soothe me with your sweet voice
    If I can't be your first choice
    You can't soothe me with your deep eyes
    If I can't be your first prize
    You can't soothe me with affection
    If it's pointed in the wrong direction
    Unless you think I'm perfection
    Unless you think I'm perfection

    Maybe I should wander
    Through these streets a little longer
    Find my ruthless angel
    That will carry me back home
    Cause we all want to go home
    And we search for love our whole lives
    I found a man who only wants to be alone

    [Chorus]

    Maybe down the road who knows?
    You'll get it together
    With all your charm my hope grows
    It's wonderful
    But you're flirting only as a friend
    You touch my heart
    And promise everything

    It'll be a mighty cold winter
    Five million people
    Couldn't one of them be you?
    And darling I love you
    But I swear that I'll be gone
    By the time you figure out
    What you want

    [Chorus] Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
