One New York Ago
Rose Cousins Lyrics


the sun was high, we walked slow
you like the heat, i like the shadow
i was brave but you didn’t know
on your birthday one new york ago

all the lights they never slept
all my love around you crept
our hearts beat and our feet stepped
through that sunday in new york
that i’ve kept

we might have had the right idea
but it never got off the ground
we were close, we were there almost
and we watched the sun go down
over the din this busy town

years move on and i don’t deny
the choice i made or your reasons why
but this cluttered heart is the tie that binds
me to the broken new york skyline

we might have had the right idea
but it never got off the ground
we were so close, we were there almost
now I can barely hear the sound

the sun is high, we walk slow
you’ve gone ahead, i’m flying solo
what i crave I would never show
on your birthday one new york ago
