Sara Bareilles – Manhattan lyrics

You can have Manhattan
I know it’s for the best
I’ll gather up the avenues
And leave them on your doorstep
And I’ll tip toe away
So you won’t have to say
You heard me leave

You can have Manhattan
I know it’s what you want
The bustle and the buildings
The weather in the fall
And I’ll bow out of place
To save you some space
For somebody new

You can have Manhattan
Cause I can’t have you

Ahhhhh

You can have Manhattan
The one we used to share
The one where we were laughing
And drunk on just being there
Hang on to the reverie
Could you do that for me?
Cause I’m just too sad to

You can have Manhattan
Cause I can’t have you

And so it goes
One foot after the other
Til black and white begin to color in
And I know
That holding us in place
Is simply fear of what’s already changed

Ahhhhh

You can have Manhattan
I’ll settle for the beach
The sunsets facing westward
The sand beneath my feet
And I’ll wish this away
Just missing the days
When I was one half of two
You can have Manhattan
Cause I can’t have you

Bye bye
Bye bye
Bye bye
Bye bye
