It's q[Em]uiet now, and w[D#]hat it brings is ev[C]erything      [Bb]      [Am7]
Comes c[Em]alling back a b[D#]rilliant night, I'm st[C]ill awake  [Bb]      [Am7]
I lo[Em]oked ahead I'm s[D#]ure I saw you t[C]here     [Bb]       [Am7]
You d[Em]on't need me to [D#]tell you now, that no[C]thing can compa[Bb]re    [Am7]
CHORUS
[G]You might have laughed if I t[D]old you
Y[C]ou might have hidden a f[Am]rown
You m[G]ight have succeeded in ch[D]anging me
[C]I might have been turned ar[Am]ound
It's e[G]asier to leave than to [D]be left behind
L[C]eaving was never my pr[Am]oud
Le[G]aving New York never e[D]asy
[C]I saw the lights fading [Am]out


(Same Chords As Above)
VERSE
Now life is sweet and what it brings I tried to take...
The loneliness, it wears me out, it lies in wait
And all not lost still in my eye, the shadow of necklace across your thigh
I might have lived my life in a dream, but i swear it, this is real
Memory fuses and shatters like glass, mercurial future, forget the past
But it's you, it's what i feel.

CHORUS
You might have laughed if I told you (it's pulling me apart)
You might have hidden a frown (change)
You might have succeeded in changing me (it's pulling me apart)
I might have been turned around (change)
It's easier to leave than to be left behind (it's pulling me apart)
Leaving was never my proud (change)
Leaving New York never easy (it's pulling me apart)
I saw the light fading out

BRIDGE
[Em]      [D#]                               
[Em]You find it in your h[D#]eart, it's pulling me a[Em]part
You find it in your h[D#]eart, change...
I t[G]old you, forever, I l[D]ove you, forever (you find it in your heart, it's pulling me apart)
I t[C]old you ,I love you, I l[Am]ove you, forever (you find it in your heart, change)
I t[G]old you, forever, I l[D]ove you, forever (you find it in your heart, it's pulling me apart)
I t[C]old you, I love you, I l[Am]ove you, forever (you find it in your heart, change)

CHORUS
You might have laughed if I told you (forever, forever,I told You, forever)
You might have hidden a frown (change)
You might have succeeded in changing me (it's pulling me apart)
I might have been turned around (change)
It's easier to leave than to be left behind (it's pulling me apart)
Leaving was never my proud (change)
Leaving New York never easy (it's pulling me apart)
I saw the light fading out (change)
Leaving new york never easy (it's pulling me apart)
I saw the light fading out (change)
Leaving new york never easy (it's pulling me apart)
I saw the light fading out (change)
