Willie Nile - Streets of New York Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • The streets of New York
  • a maze made of iron and stone.
  • A labyrinth complete,
  • with edges that cut through the bone.
  • They come by the millions,
  • the hipster, the prince and the clown.
  • They come ‘cause they know that
  • something’s going down…
  • on the streets of New York.
  • The streets of New York
  • wind and turn in their own crooked way.
  • A motherless child,
  • so reckless at work and at play.
  • Still-born buildings abound,
  • corporations of steel,
  • long lines at the lost and found
  • all serve to reveal…
  • the streets of New York
  • The streets of New York
  • have faces only mothers could love.
  • From rich boys in silk,
  • to panhandlers who can’t get enough.
  • Drifters ride on the subways,
  • hustlers roam through the night.
  • Tourists come back again and again
  • until they get it right…
  • on the streets of New York.
  • The streets of New York
  • unfold like a matchmaker’s dream.
  • Day becomes night,
  • through canyons of concrete and steam.
  • Juliet on the rooftops,
  • Romeo underground.
  • Late at night when their lips meet,
  • you can’t hear a sound…
  • on the streets of New York.
  • The streets of New York
  • have places where two hearts can meet.
  • The west side, uptown
  • or down here on Revington Street.
  • Meet me tonight by the station,
  • meet me in Washington Square.
  • We’ll drink wine and dance on the moonlight,
  • and I’ll hold you in the air…
  • on the streets of New York.
