Maybe I should wander
Through these streets a little longer
Hey new york city
Won't you welcome me back home
And darling I love you
But I swear that I'll be gone
By the time you figure out what you want

Maybe I should wander
Through my solitude a little longer
Turn your head now sailor
Well I used to be so much stronger
How in the hell did I get here
In this city so alone
Oh sometimes life seems so long

Chorus
You can't soothe me with your sweet voice
If I can't be your first choice
You can't soothe me with your deep eyes
If I can't be your first prize
You can't soothe me with affection
If it's pointed in the wrong direction
Unless you think I'm perfection
Unless you think I'm perfection

Maybe I should wander
Through these streets a little longer
Find my ruthless angel
That will carry me back home
Cause we all wanna go home
And we search for love our whole lives
I found a man who only wants to be alone

Repeat chorus

Maybe down the road who knows
You'll get it together
With all your charm my hope grows
It's wonderful
But you're flirting only as a friend
You touch my heart
And promise everything

It'll be a mighty cold winter
Five million people
Couldn't one of them be you
And darling I love you
But I swear that I'll be gone
By the time you figure out
What you want

Repeat chorus
