Was it Washington Square
Or the way you wore you hair?
Was it central park
Or kissing after dark?
Guess I'll never know
Not sure I even care
But my heart will always live
With you and me there
But I can't afford to live in New York City
Ahahahah
And she can't afford to leave
Ahahah
Was it the Sea Port in June
Or your face by the moon?
Was it Soho's charm
Or you and I arm in arm?
Was it the 6 train uptown
Or true love that I found?
It all blends into one
When I think of you now
But I can't afford to live in New York City
Ahahahah
And she can't afford to leave
Ahahah
Well I know that a promise is to keep
But money's tight and I've been losing sleep
Old Man Circumstance will have his way
It's true
But what I wouldn't give to stay here with you
And I can't afford to live in New York City
Ahahahah
And she can't afford to leave
Ahahah
And I've never been good with good-byes
But good-byes are all I have
