There's a girl in New York City
Skylines no longer pretty
Bound to destination anywhere
She grew up in California
Big dreams, they tend to own you there
Now she's building cardboard castles in the air
[fade]

She was a rainbow once
So colorful but that was once
Now that's impossible to see, to see
With a voice subliminal, It's the only sign she's beautiful
Here's all that's left of her dignity
She goes yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah yeah

There's a girl in New York City
Skylines no longer pretty
Bound to destination anywhere
She grew up in California
Big dreams, they tend to own you there
Now she's building cardboard castles in the air
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

There's a girl in New York City
Skylines no longer pretty
Bound to destination anywhere
She grew up in California
Big dreams, they tend to own you there
Now she's building cardboard castles in the air
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
[fade]

There's a girl in New York City
Skylines no longer pretty
Bound to destination anywhere
She grew up in California
Big dreams, they tend to own you there
Now she's building cardboard castles in the air
