From the shores of the mediterranean
All the way to new york city
It's bloody expensive to live in that town
And i found out the hard way
But i almost had it all

Was it washington square
Or the way you wore your hair
Was it central park
Or kissing after dark
Guess i'll never know
Not sure i even care
But my heart will always live
With you and me there

But i can't afford to live in new york city
Ah ah ah
And she can't afford to leave
Ah ah
I can't afford to live in new york city
Ah ah ah
And she can't afford to leave

But god i miss her

Was it the sea port in june
Or your face by the moon
Was it soho's charm
Or you and i arm in arm
Was it the six train uptown
Or true love that i found
It all blends into one
When i think of you now

And i can't afford to live in new york city
Ah ah ah
And she can't afford to leave
Ah ah
I can't afford to live in new york city
Ah ah ah
And she can't afford to leave

Well i know that a promise is to keep
But money's tight and i've been losing sleep
Old man circumstance will have his way it's true
But what i wouldn't give to stay here with you

But i can't afford to live in new york city
Ah ah ah
And she can't afford to leave
Ah ah
I can't afford to live in new york city
Ah ah ah
And she can't afford to leave

And i've never been good at goodbyes
But goodbyes are all i have
And i can't afford to live in new york city
And i'm pulling outta here
Is there anything i can say
To make you change your mind
