Richard Ashcroft – New York lyrics

Are you tuning in
Are you tuning in
Are you tuning in
Are you tuning in
I wanted to go half my life
And I feel kind of strange
Like I never lived that life
And I'm trying hard
To control my heart
And I always want to know
And I always want to go


New York are you tuning in
New York big city of dreams New York
O what a city New York
Are you tuning in
Are you tuning in
Are you tuning in
Are you tuning in

There's now time to unpack yet
Lets get straight out on the street
And feel no inner bishions
This city was built for me
And my head is full of questions
When did I feel this good
In the arms of my lover
Burning through the night of New York


And it's funny how time flys
In the city that never sleeps
It's getting after hours
And I'm feeling the heat
I'm almost dead and buried
The days nearly done
But I want to keep on going
I'm going to kiss the sun in New York


And I'm feeling kind of selfish
I've been busy on your island
Just having my own fun
It's an English tradition
Find some money make some time
Get busy on your island
Cos' we will only lose our minds in New York
