Oh can you say those
City lights a shining
Most the time I wish that I could too
But I can’t complain since
I been life refining
From Chapel Hill to Nashville
Where I met you

But still every now and then
I just hear that city calling so
Please don’t make me choose
Oh cause half my heart’s trapped in
New York City
But the rest of it
I’m holding out for you

I know you don’t need no
Don’t need no money, gold, or diamonds
Ever poor and happy we could be
I’d bring you coffee at midnight
I’ll bring you wine when we’re dining
And if you say the word
I could be down on one knee


Sometimes at night
I hear the subway roar
But you turn on light
And I don’t miss it anymore
Cause you’re at my door
