Lock me up in your heart, babe
Lock me up and leave me to die
New York City is yours, babe
Los Angeles is all mine
Keep me in your fortress of tears
Keep me in your locket and cry
New York City is yours, gal
Hollywood, La Brea and Vine is all mine

Take me into your arms, gal
Kiss me and tell me no lies
New York City is always
California's only sometimes
Oh . . . oh . . . oh . . . oh

    General CommentHa well to me this song reminds me of my ex girlfriend and our trip to texas. The part that goes "New York City is always, California's only sometimes.." really makes me sad. It makes me feel as though she was always and I was only sometimes with her. If that makes any sense.
