lyrics

Walking down the streets of NYC
Warmly greeting every face you see
You are bold and you are deep
Like the city that never sleeps

Central Park casts shadows from its trees
Subways shake the sidewalks, buckling knees
All you are is all you've known
Like a scar that has been sown
All you are is all you've known
Oh you'll never be alone

And I don't need you if you're not Luiza! Luiza!
I don't need you if you're not Luiza! Luiza!

Standing on the High Line's freight train rail
The buildings shout out, colored in pastels
There are stories you can tell unlike anybody else
From the rooftops you can see all the truths to set you free

And I don't need you if you're not Luiza! Luiza!
I don't need you if you're not Luiza! Luiza!
I don't need you if you're not Luiza! Luiza!

And I don't need you if you're not Luiza! Luiza!
I don't need you if you're not Luiza! Luiza!
I don't need you if you're not Luiza! Luiza!
