"My Blue Manhattan" as written by and Ryan Adams....
My blue Manhattan
She's angry like a child, but how sweet
Fire and rain on the street
It's you against me most days
It's me against you, fell
Ah, the snow's comin' down
On the cars in midtown
Stone cold in sheets with you all over me
Ain't that sweet my little gal,
Ain't that sweet my little gal

My blue Manhattan
She cusses with her sailor's mouth
And fire and rain on the streets
It's you against me most days
It's me against you
Making snow angels in the gravel and the dirt
Crawling like spider,
And I'm somewhere inside her
Too hurt to move, too hurt to move
My blue Manhattan

    General CommentI like to think this is a sequel to 'New York, New York' as 'Love is Hell' was the intended follow-up to 'Gold'. The dual meaning still applies. She's a city, she's a girl, and knowing her is still a struggle every day.

    The imagery is ... simply beautiful. I know how the city looks under a fresh blanket of snow, it covers up all the ugliness. For me, snow is also a metaphor in music as a return to innocence. I'm not sure if it fits this particular song, but I can't shake it, just like you can't shake the girl with an outer layer of beauty and purity...

    General CommentIn my opinion this is the best song on "Love Is Hell". It's very deep. It encapsulates all that's best about Ryan Adams in little more than two minutes.
