Build a fire for Val Jester
Build a room for your love
Take your time when you tell her
How she lives in your blood

You should've looked after her better
You should've looked after her more
You should've locked the door

Fill her coat with weapons and help her get it on
Cuz one day when she goes, she's gone

You should've held on to her better
You should've held on to her more
You should've locked the door

All the most important people in New York are nineteen
All the most important people in New York
[Repeat]
