"Girl from NYC (Named Julia)" as written by and Kevin Barnes....
I'm such a vulnerable lad
With nothing to protect me
From your world so bright and full of laughter

I went home and sank my head into the pillow
I close my eyes and try to hear it again
To hear you laughing again

I cried in a dream
While staying at your place
I tried to talk about it over breakfast
But you made a joke out of it
And I never told you why, my my

Why didn't it seem like you were only playing with me?
I wrote you a letter on the flight home which evolved into a love poem
So of course I couldn't send it then

I cried in a dream
While staying at your place
I'm such a vulnerable lad
With nothing to protect me
From your world so bright and full of laughter

    General CommentThis song was what got me hooked on oM. It's so sweet and honest and dark, but it still has that sense of ironic existentialist fun. a really good example of elephant 6.

    General CommentThis song is sad...
    Hes talking about a girl who wouldn't listen to him when he had a dream that he felt was important. She just made fun of him. His whole relationship had...quote: "seemed like you[she] were[was] only playing with me[him]".

    He liked her very much and couldn't get her out of his head.

    Line 12 shouldn't have a "why" it should be another "my" attached to 11... there were also a few other little mistakes.


    What album is this from by the way? Its the mysterious song that I can't put an album with it.

    General CommentI think he is depressed and she seems to not care about him, making the depression worst. Oh, I've been there.

    General CommentYeah, I feel like I he takes the relationship more seriously than the girl. She is kind of just playing with him and she doesn't really care about his feelings. I can really relate to this song.

    General CommentThis strikes me as a song about a boy who traveled to NYC to see if there was something between him and Julia. She didn't feel the same way he did.

    My girl from NYC is Patti and the same thing happened to me.
