Ya yeh ya, heyey ya, oh woh woh woh woh, ah ah ah ahh

Say goodbye to all of your friends
And the people we knew
Its better that it comes from you
Tell them what you want
Cause I tried so hard to make you happy
No big star dreams, no things that seem
To make up your life
So I'm going back to new york city
Where people live

In my reality
All of my life
Yours was no good for me
Need to feel the beat
Of the street, in my life
In my reality
Back to my life
Yours was no good for me
3000 miles away
And everydays a new day

All those dreams that pulled us apart
And the things that you want
They'll never be enough for you
So I'll say goodbye
And I'm going back to new york city
Where people live

In my reality
Back to my life
Yours was no good for me
Need to feel the beat
Of the street
In my life
Back to my old address
Nobody to impress
3000 miles away
And everydays a new day ya

I guess my love was not enough for you
So I'll say goodbye baby
And I'm going back to new york city
There people live

In my reality
All of my life
Yours was no good for me
I need to feel the heat of the street
In my life
Goodbye to hollywood
Didn't do me any good
3000 miles away
Where everyday is a brand new day, ay yah yah yah

Soooo go on and say goodbye to all your friends
And the people we new ew ew
Its better that it comes from you
And you can tell them what you want
'cause i tried so hard to make you happy baby
But I gotta go back
To my reality
Back to my life
That's where I need to be
I need to feel the heat
Of the streets ya ah
In my life, in my life, in my life
I need to be
Feeling alright yeh ya
3000 miles away
Its okay 'cause everyday is a brand new day ya
So say ya ya ya say goodbye to all your friends
And the people that you used to know
'cause I've gotta go
And you can tell them what you want baby
'cause I tried so very very hard
To make you oh so happy but baby baby
I'll pack my bags
I gotta go

(fade)
