New York, wasn't mine
Was it me?
Or just my kind?
Spinning softly, talking sweet
And there's no place left to be
but a road the just goes onto every leaving town
friends as lovers, lovers as friends
Shall we dance?
Into the night
As the jukebox moans and pours out time
Friends and lovers, lovers and friends
"And there's no place left to be
then wrapped around your eyes
in every leaving town
us as lovers, and us as friends
there’s no prayers
for dashboard light
flagging goals
you're missing sides
'cause they say you are the one
and there’s no place left to be
than where you stand right now
i know these leaving towns
friends as lovers
lovers as friends
Into your back
i speak aloud
And to your face
I'm only proud
We're friends with lovers
and lovers with friends
"Darling boy," she said
"You're on my mind," she said
"I feel your skin," she says, "as if it's mine," she says,
"this pain is sweet, too sweet to touch"
and there's no place left to be
in the shadow of your lives
in every leaving town
it's us and lovers, and lovers as friends
And there's no place left to be that could keep me away from you
And passed these leaving towns
I see lovers
and us as friends

    General CommentI believe this song represents a couple of people who started as friends and became lovers. I believe the relationship switches titles but they never part completely. It's like an everlasting relationship be it as friends or as lovers. They love each other period. It also delves into seeing the relationships withing the relationships swtching as well. When they are lovers they each have friends, when they are friends they each have lovers. Great song again, I wish there was a studio version. I think in the beggining he says something else after New York (sounds like eyes or ahh). PS - 1st again!
