please feel free to download, share, podcast, etc. just tell everyone you give these to where you got them, that's all.
every time she pulls an eyelash off my cheek
she says "make a wish
and don't you tell"
every night i lie awake while she's asleep
i can't go home but i can't stay here
in new york city for too many years i know
all the words up in my head
they never make it onto paper
never get where they should go
i know the things i should have said
i'd kill to have the chance to say them now
but when i could have i just turned and walked away
said "i don't know where i'm going but it's far from here
i hear new york city's kinda nice this time of year"
all the crying she's been doing
doesn't make it easy to explain the how and why
packed my bags and left her with some money
now the only thing that's left is goodbye
i don't know where i'm going but i can't stay here
i can tell already i'll miss new york city
this time of year
