SamBea Cochrane – Ticket To New York lyrics

Verse 1:
“I want to get away,” I thought, I’m at a dead end road
The cars are full, the subways busy, I’m at a dead end road
So I went right out and lived right up, I knew I not abide,
So I payedmy dues and gave my mind
To a lack of unfortunate bide

So I grabbed my troubled heart, took my dreams on a train
I’ve got my ticket to New York, and I’m going to run away
And if you try and hold me back, I’ll come and prove you wrong
You know, the city don’t seem so bad if it’s where you’ve been all along

Verse 2:
I want to go and live my life, but I knew I’d seen no sign,
The days lost light, the clocks lost time, and the lonely lost their minds,
And you have never lost your mind, a hope or dream of friend,
But it brings right out these old, used thoughts, that you don’t understand


Verse 3:

I know they say you can’t buy love, but what had I to pay?
A time, a start, or an end could take me far away.
They say that you think differently, they say it like it’s bad,
But this whole time, you wish they’d see exactly what you had

Final Chorus

So I grabbed my troubled heart, took my dreams on a train
I’ve got my ticket to New York, and now I’m far away,
And if you come and join me, I’d let you tag along,
Being lonely don’t seem so bad, when it’s loneliness in song
