lyrics

New York, I came to see the lights
Of New York, but I got hypnotised
I’m caught in the glare now
For me there’s nowhere but New York

I’m all talk, I said I’ll walk away
From New York, but I’m still here today
My mistake was forgetting
The Titanic was heading to New York

How did it end up this way
I never dreamt that I would stay
I never thought I’d be caught in

New York, I lost my liberty
In New York I found that love found me
I’m caught in this trap
Now I see no way back from New York

How did it end up this way
I never dreamt that I would stay
I never thought I’d be caught in New York
I never thought I’d be caught in

New York, I fell in love with you
New York, I heard all my dreams could come true
But I’m still waiting
Woah, I’m still waiting, New York

New York, I ain’t got time to stop
It’s New York the town where John got shot
I knew from the start
I should not drop my guard in New York

How did it end up this way
I never dreamt that I would stay
I never thought I’d be caught in New York
I never thought I’d be caught in

New York, I fell in love with you
New York, I heard all my dreams would come true
But I’m still waiting
Woah, I’m still waiting, New York

The sweat, the schemes, the tears, the dreams
The truth, the lies, the ground, the skies
The weak, the strong, the nights go on
On and on and on and on and on

How did it end up this way
I never dreamt that I would stay
I never thought I’d be caught in New York
I never thought I’d be caught in New York
I never thought I’d be caught in New York.
