Jasper Sawyer – NYC Forever lyrics

Verse 1:
I flew in to JFK and everything looked like it was ok to me
I took a closer look and I, I realized the city would take dollars straight from me
Rolling through New York City in a Bentley aint in the budget so I can’t
Eating up all these expensive dinners no it aint in the budget so I can’t
I’m hungry but

Chorus:
I have arrived in the NYC
Look at all of these lights turning up the streets
The buildings in the sky tower over me
And the city’s kind of cold if you know what I mean

Oh I made it, I made it, I made it
I made it to this heaven, this heaven called NYC
I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready
I’m taking on this heaven, this heaven called NYC

Verse 2:
I checked in a hotel and I can tell you 10 floors up was cool to me
I took a closer look and I, I realized the people on the ground were hustling
Flying over New York City in a helicopter aint in the budget so I won't
Acting like I can afford a private driver well it aint in the budget so I’ll walk
I’m tired but

Chorus

Verse 3:
After about twenty blocks, I knew that I could never settle down in NYC
Someone call a Taxi Cab, I’ll give you every dollar that I have to rest my feet

Spending my life in New York City oh it aint in the cards so I won’t
I’m about broke from life in the city, back at JFK I’m going home
But still I’m like

Chorus

Bridge:
(I heard the people say)
You can’t have me New York City
Leave me alone, leave me alone, leave me alone
(I heard the people say/I heard the people cry)
All you want is all my money, this I know, this I know, this I know

(But they changed their minds/I heard the people say)

You can have me New York City,
You’re my home, you’re my home, you’re my home
(I heard the people cry/I heard them change their minds)

I will give you all my money, this you know, this you know, this you know
(repeat)

Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute
I heard the people say…

Bridge 2:
NYC is it for me, I’ll be rocking NYC forever
(I think they changed my mind)
NYC is it for me, doesn’t matter cost, the crowd, or weather

NYC is it for me I’ll be rocking NYC forever
(I got to stay, I got to stay, I got to stay)
NYC is it for me, I’ll be spending money here forever
