New York Lyrics

St. Vincent
[Verse 1]
New York isn't New York
Without you, love
So far in a few blocks
To be so low

[Refrain 1]
And if I call you from First Avenue
Where you're the only m*********** in the city
Who can handle me

[Verse 2]
New love wasn't true love
Back to you, love
So much for a home run
With some blue bloods

[Refrain 2]
If I last-strawed you on 8th Avenue
Where you're the only m*********** in the city
Who can stand me

[Chorus]
I have lost a hero
I have lost a friend
But for you, darling
I'd do it all again

[Chorus]
I have lost a hero
I have lost a friend
But for you, darling
I'd do it all again

[Verse 3]
New York isn't New York
Without you, love
Too few of our old crew
Left on Astor

[Refrain 3]
So, if I trade our hood for some Hollywood
Where you're the only m*********** in the city who would
Only m*********** in the city who would
Only m*********** in the city who'd forgive me

[Chorus]
I have lost a hero
I have lost a friend
But for you, darling
I'd do it all again

[Chorus]
I have lost a hero
I have lost a friend
But for you, darling
I'd do it all again
