The days were long and the nights so cold
The pages turn and the tale unfolds
He left me for another lady
She stood so tall and she never slept
The was not one moment he could regret
He left me for another lady

He took my hand one day and told me
He was leaving
Me disbelieving
And I I I I I I I I
Had to let him go

Her name was New York, New York
And she took his heart away oh my
Her name was New York, New York
She had poisoned his sweet mind
Mmmm

The wolves they howled for my lost soul
I fell down a deep black hole
He left me for another lady
She poured the drinks and she poured the power
Diamond girl who could talk for hours
He left me for another lady

Now I am on my own
He told me he was leaving
And I was pleading
And I I I I I I I I
Had to let him go

Her name was New York, New York
And she took his heart away oh my
Her name was New York, New York
She had poisoned his sweet mind

The greatest times
I don't want to hear it
Your new laughter lines
I don't want to hear it
The new found friends she introduced you to
I don't wanna know them I just want to be with you
Please don't make me go to
New York

New York
And she took your heart away oh my
Her name was New York, New York
She poisoned your sweet mind

Her name was New York, New York
And she took your heart away oh my
Her name was New York, New York
She poisoned your sweet mind

She poisoned your sweet mind

    I think the meaning is one day he found this place called newyork , like a lady he fell in love with the place and wanted to leave paloma for the neyork place . She doesnt want to hear what their has to offer in neyork but she wants his heart back , and she will do anything even go to that place to change his mind but she cant because he already left her
