Richard Marx – Remember Manhattan lyrics

Nothing worth a damn
Can be sifted through the brain
Sense don't make the man
But you insist on being sane
Don't take time to think
Or you're done before you start
There's no missing link
Cause it's right there in your heart

Take a closer look,
There's an answer not a question
In that May-December line
You'll bite a bigger hook
Than the one you want to leave behind

Remember Manhattan
Woody wasn't wrong
Remember Manhattan
Before you say so long

How you gonna tell
If it stands the test of time
There's no wishing well
That comestrue without the dime

It's a common curse
That the grass is always greener
No matter what you have
But nothing could be worse
Than to try to reproduce the past

Remember Manhattan
Woody wasn't wrong
Remember Manhattan
Before you say so long
Remember Manhattan
What did Woody say
He said, Remember Manhattan
Before you walk away

Lose your common sense
'Cause you may not get the chance again

Chorus out
