New York Minute Lyrics

Eleventyseven – New York Minute Lyrics

I remember it well
Feeling awkward as hell in a teenage conversation
We were rockin' The Strokes
Then I was meetin' your folks
Trying to pass that initiation
We never called it a date
But baby I couldn't wait
To see if we had the some affections
That summer down by the lake
We were raising the stakes
To see if we'd make the same confessions

And I'm slower than most on the uptake
Forever in debt to the one day...

When the lights came on and I got it
It only took me a New York minute to spot it
I knew it the second I saw it
You were everything that I didn't know I wanted

I was ready to blow all of my student loans
For the drive those winter weekends
You would listen to all of my shitty songs
About a guy with conflicted feelings
I remember the day that I drove away when
You said that we needed distance
I spent the next three years trying to not appear
Like a half of me was missing

And I'm slower than most on the uptake
Forever in debt to the one day...

When the lights came on and I got it
It only took me a New York minute to spot it
I knew it the second I saw it
You were everything that I didn't know I wanted

Sometimes the best things in life only come around
When the rest of it's not quit working out
And I'd do it again for a shot at the end game
Girl that's why I was holding out

One day the lights came on and I got it
It only took me a New York minute to spot it
I knew it the second I saw it
You were everything that I didn't know I wanted
