Owl City – New York City lyrics

[Verse 1]
I'm digging through the glove box
I thought I had a map in here
The driver's door doesn't lock
I bought the car my junior year
There’s candy in my backpack
And you can pick our soundtrack
We're heading for the East Coast tonight
So pack your bags and hold on tight
Cause we're taking off
We're taking off

We're taking off

[Chorus]
Run away with me
We're on the way to New York City
Take my hand and see
Manhattan never looked so pretty
Travel light and see the world right
You'll never know if you never go so
Run away with me
And say hello to New York City

[Verse 2]
Feet up on the dashboard
We're driving with the windows down
Did you forget your phone cord?
We'll buy one in the next small town
Get dinner at an IHOP
A shower at a truck stop
We'll listen to some Johnny Cash
Take my hand and don't look back
Cause we're moving on

We're moving on

[Chorus]
Run away with me
We're on the way to New York City
Take my hand and see
Manhattan never looked so pretty
Travel light and see the world right
You'll never know if you never go so
Run away with me
And say hello to New York City

Run away
Run away
Run away
Run away

[Chorus]
Run away with me
We're on the way to New York City
Take my hand and see
Manhattan never looked so pretty
Travel light and see the world right
You'll never know if you never go so
Run away with me...

[Outro]
Stroll the downtown streets
And tell me that you don't feel giddy
Lady Liberty
Ain't throwing us a wink or is she?
Travel light and see the world right
You'll never know if you never go so
Run away with me
And say hello to New York City
Say hello to New York City
Say hello to New York City
