lyrics

Lights rain down illuminating passersby
The darkest night gives its way to a neon sky
People fleeting in every direction
You're lost in the center of attention
As if you didn't know

Will you stop in your tracks just to lift me up
Lend a hand to the drunkard you've stumbled on

Much too scared,
To be young and so in love with everyone
That you meet out on the streets
Of New York City's famous scene

Take a subway uptown to Sloan Kettering
Push and shove your way through, no one's listening
Head back downtown through Grand Central Station
Watch the ball drop and cry jubilation
I see it much clearer you stay

Much too scared,
To be young and so in love with everyone
That you meet out on the streets of NYC
Fool me once, shame on me
Fool me twice, I can barely see all I've done and what you've become
The loneliest, most selfish picture of life as one

Much too scared,
To be young and so in love with everyone
That you meet out on the streets of NYC
Fool me once, shame on me
Fool me twice, I can barely see all I've done and what you've become
The loneliest, most selfish picture of life as one
