ďThe AtlanticĒ

Oh city
New York City
East coast baby
Wonít you take me away
I want to get lost in your eight million people
I want to be buried with your subway
Bright light distractions
Common civil infractions
But this small town boy loves your impersonality
Let me lay down in the streets with the veterans
I will be the wanderer once again
Some people say that I am running
I prefer to say Iím flying
I built myself wings with my dreams
Yes with my dreams
And I canít wait to walk your streets once again
I canít wait to stand on the docks
And feel the Atlantic wind
I canít wait to walk your streets once again

And I want the Atlantic at my doorstep
I want the Atlantic in my face
I want the Atlantic at my toes tips
This town is like a statue
Please donít leave a trace
Stars burn like city lights
City lights burn like stars
Hurry me away before I burn from the scars

Iím leaving girl
But I still feel the same way about you

And I want the Atlantic at my doorstep
I want the Atlantic in my face
I want the Atlantic at my toes tips
This town is like a statue
Please donít leave a trace
Stars burn like city lights
City lights burn like stars
Hurry me away before I burn from the scars

Iím leaving girl
But I still feel the same way about you

Call me, see me
Donít forget me
Love me, miss me
Come with me
I will never forget you
No, I will never forget you

And I want the Atlantic at my doorstep
I want the Atlantic in my face
I want the Atlantic at my toes tips
This town is like a statue
Please donít leave a trace
Stars burn like city lights
City lights burn like stars
Hurry me away before I burn from the scars

Iím leaving girl
But I still feel the same way about you
I will never forget you
No, I will never forget you

I don't stop by often these days, but after your comment on my "Johnny's Going to Baghdad" (thanks much, btw) I wanted to see something of yours.
