New York you're making me soft
New York you're making me old
I'm on fire but I'm always cold
And I'm tired but you won't sleep

You just nap when you're on the train
Eyes closed, crime on the brain
And every stop you wake up again
And see you ain't there yet

I always dreamed New York would wipe clean all the bad in me
But lately it seems this town makes me not give a damn
The ups are so high and the downs are so low
Being young gets old
My eyes always hurt cause sleeping is cursed as
Deaths cousin so
Folks mustn't show
How tired they are

New York you've taken my nights
Stretched em out all over my life
Your street lamps are my only lights
I ain't sure my eyes work

My dreams were s'posed to come true
Instead my dreams became you
New York oh what do I do?
I'm tired but I can't sleep
I can't—
