about

if you live in new york don't actually leave your doors open people will rob you

lyrics

Got on a train and I saw a woman
She held a locket in her palm, I saw
A pair of girls just holding hands
Wonder if they think nobody else could understand

Cause I have been every person in this city
Wondering if I'm alone
And we must open up our doors
New York, I'm yours

New York, I'm yours

I saw an old man play a sonata down in the subway,
no one stopped, and what could he do?
I saw a child sobbing and screaming
everyone around seemed like they might start crying too

But I have been every person in this city
Wondering if I'm alone
And we must open up our doors
New York, I'm yours

New York, I'm yours

Don't blink, the neon signs are lanterns in the mines
And what a blinding sight, each other's sunlight

I saw a boy who gave me a smile,
looked like he hadn't done it in a while
I stopped and I wondered
How many others are aching for a voice that is not their own

But I have been every person in this city
Wondering if I'm alone
And we must open up our doors
New York, I'm yours
We must open up our doors
New York I'm yours

When did we learn to let each other go?
A country of islands miles away,
we're scattered like the snow
And did we forget while learning how to hide
that we come from stars and stars are always shining
but it burns so bright when we collide
we collide

And there are some days
that I still miss you
But mostly I just look around and smile because
the world is waiting, and it ain't fading,
strange for me to think about the lonely girl I was

Cause I have been every person in this city
never feeling quite full-grown
But we are not on our own
no, we are not alone

Looking up, oh my heart it soars
New York, I'm yours
New York, I'm yours
