"One Day You'll Dance For Me New York City" as written by and Thomas Dybdahl....
Dazed and confused
But most of all battered and bruised
I came with a dream
Shared by more than a few it seems

Fall asleep now, New York City
I need to rest my eyes
Someday I'll rise, New York City
One day you'll dance for me

Fall back
It's been a lot day but we're still on track
Embrace the fierce reality
Or wither away in sentimentality

All asleep now, New York City
I need to rest my eyes
Someday I'll rise, New York City
One day you'll dance for me

    My InterpretationRead simply, this song could just be about Dybdahl's own experience of New York's hard exterior. Perhaps as a travelling musician he found it difficult to get a break there, but he continued.

    This song is about the triumph of human spirit. We all get knocked-down, we all suffer regrets and trials, but we pick ourselves up and carry on. New York is supposed to be an unforgiving, hostile place and from this we can draw parallels to our own lives.

    Not only does it have lovely lyrics (I am a huge fan of Dybdahl's lyrics) but it has depth, beauty and soul. Joie de vivre.
