Maybe I should wander
Through these streets a little longer
Hey New York City
Won't you welcome me back home?
And darling I love you
But I swear that I'll be gone
By the time you figure out what you want

Maybe I should wander
Through my solitude a little longer
Turn your head now sailor
Well I used to be so much stronger
How in the hell did I get here?
In this city so alone
Oh sometimes life seems so long

[Chorus]
You can't soothe me with your sweet voice
If I can't be your first choice
You can't soothe me with your deep eyes
If I can't be your first prize
You can't soothe me with affection
If it's pointed in the wrong direction
Unless you think I'm perfection
Unless you think I'm perfection

Maybe I should wander
Through these streets a little longer
Find my ruthless angel
That will carry me back home
Cause we all want to go home
And we search for love our whole lives
I found a man who only wants to be alone

[Chorus]

Maybe down the road who knows?
You'll get it together
With all your charm my hope grows
It's wonderful
But you're flirting only as a friend
You touch my heart
And promise everything

It'll be a mighty cold winter
Five million people
Couldn't one of them be you?
And darling I love you
But I swear that I'll be gone
By the time you figure out
What you want

[Chorus]
