God, give me one shot and I'll break right through
I am starting to be brand new

Rome is burning you can taste the embers
I am walking hard on Spanish Stairs
My saint was silence wrapping on the door
Grown up defiant wanting so much more

Me brand new, say
(Starting over)
Me brand new, say
(Starting over)
Me brand new, say, I say

Give me one shot at my life today
One shot at my life today
I don't wanna be a stranger

Walk with millions, a delicate few
So sad how loneliness just follows you
New York City streets and avenues
Cut the concrete they march through

Me brand new, say
(Starting over)
Me brand new, say
(Starting over)
Me brand new, say, I say

Give me one shot at my life today
One shot at my life today
I don't wanna be a stranger

I don't wanna be just a passerby
Standin' a line wrapped around the world
I don't wanna be just a parasite
Holdin' on tight, holdin' on tight

I got this feeling and it's down in my bones
I got this feeling and it's burning up my soul
I got to get just one shot, baby, one more day
Gotta give me one shot a day
I got the feeling just give me one day, day, day

Give me one shot at my life today
One shot at my life today
I don't wanna be a stranger

Give me one shot at my life today
One shot at my life today
I don't wanna be a stranger

I don't wanna be a stranger
I don't wanna be a stranger
I don't wanna be a stranger

I don't wanna be just a passerby
Standin' in some line that's wrapped around the world
I don't want to be just a parasite
Holdin' on tight, holdin' on tight, holdin' on tight
