Fun Lovin' Criminals – Ballad Of NYC lyrics

[Intro]
Sand in my socks, and tears in my eyes, there's blood on my hands and smoke in the skies. My brothers are gone, but I'm numb to the pain, can't pick up the phone, now I'm dreaming again. So you'all can't relate, you see I'm all by myself, where can I turn, when there's nobody else. See I'm back in the world, and I'm living your lie. I smile at the girls, but I'm dying inside.

[Chorus]
Where do I begin? New York city, the place that has become my friend. I've walked my pain over your streets once again. Yet you're always there for me, for me, yeah.

I'm on the Westside, and I'm down by the river, my dog starts to bark, and the wind starts to whimper. There's not enough time, to leave it all behind. See all you love, my voice in your mind (saying) Drag the river for my soul. And dust my sugar from the fold. Although my sins are getting cold, drag the river for my soul.

[Chorus]
Where do I begin? New York city, the place that has become my friend. I've walked my pain over your streets once again. Yet you're always there for me, for me, yeah.

[Pre-Chorus]
Drag the river for my soul. And dust my sugar from the fold. Although, my sins are getting cold, drag the river for my soul.

[Chorus] x2
Where do I begin? New York city, the place that has become my friend. I've walked my pain over your streets once again. Yet you're always there for me, for me, yeah.

[Outro]
