Caught the green line down at Bleecker and Broad
And now it's droppin' down to thirty below.
I can't feel my toes but baby im on fire.

We'll sleep on subways we'll spend time in cafes.
These pretty girls and these Manhattan apartments.
These New York City police are all fuckin' liars

Staten Island princess so pretty in pearls
Drop it down make it an uptown affair
You got the money and i got the drugs
You're pretty pretty for a white white girl

Take me to the Mercury Lounge Let's see what trouble we can get in tonight
Cause everywhere I go it's like the end of the world

But with your back to the wall you're gonna be the lonely one
If you dance all night you're gonna be loved
But with your back to the wall you're gonna be the lonely one
If you dance all night you're gonna be loved

Don't know where to start, you're breaking my heart
How's anybody supposed to love, baby 'till you do?

But with your back to the wall you're gonna be the lonely one
If you dance all night you're gonna be loved
But with your back to the wall you're gonna be the lonely one
If you dance all night you're gonna be loved
But with your back to the wall you're gonna be the lonely one
If you dance all night you're gonna be loved
But with your back to the wall you're gonna be the lonely one
If you dance all night you're gonna be loved

    General CommentAmazing song. Pretty self-explanitory. In my mind, it's pretty much about putting yourself out there, and not being afraid to be yourself.

    General CommentThis song,as the band has strongly alluded to and ofte nsaid outright,is about being in New York City.years ago the band's van broke down in NYC in the winter in the worst blizzard the city ad seen in like 30 years.the "green line down at bleecker and broad" is the subway car they slept on and they got on the station at Bleecker St. and Broadway.The lines about "staten island princess so pretty in pearls" and "these pretty girls and these manhattan apartments" are pretty self-explanatory lol.
