New York

U2

 AGCadd9G
  in new york freedom looks like    too many choices
 AGCadd9
  in new york i found a friend
 G
to drown out the other voices
 AG
 voices on the cell phone voices from home
 Cadd9
 voices through the hard sell
 GA
 voices down a stairwell in new york
 GCadd9GA
 just got a place in new york      

In New York summers get hot
Well into the hundreds
You can't walk around the block
Without a change of clothing
Hot as a hair dryer in your face
Hot as a handbag and a can of mace

In New York, I just got a place in New York
New York, New York

In New York you can forget
Forget how to sit still
Tell yourself you will stay in
But it's down to Alphaville
New York, New York, New York
New York, New York, New York

The Irish have been coming here for years
Feel like they own the place
They got the airport, city hall, concrete
Asphalt, they even got the police
Irish, Italians, Jews and Hispanics
Religious nuts, political fanatics in the stew,
Living happily not like me and you
That's where I lost you... New York
New York, New York
New York, New York

In New York I lost it all to you and your vices
Still I'm staying on to figure out my mid life crisis
I hit an iceberg in my life
But you know I'm still afloat
You lose your balance, lose your wife
In the queue for the lifeboat
You got to put the women and children first
But you've got an unquenchable thirst for New York
New York, New York
New York, New York

n the stillness of the evening
When the sun has had its day
I heard your voice a-whispering
Come away child
New York, New York
