My heart beats like an ant crossing a speaker
in an a and b affair, I barely reach the other side.
Waiting the L train takes too long
the brain can't process coming home after an evening nine to five.

No keys to gramercy as the daylight and the night meet up for drinks
and I can't remember names.
My head rings like it's currency, and every passerby I greet replies
can you spare a little change.

When I'm old, I hope you're old.
So we can grow so old together
We can stay so young I'm told
when you leave, I'll close the door
but there's no question, I'll remember our growing old together.

Pass Tomkins Square and when you get there
they'll say these are in demand, so I opened up my hand
and when I untie my eyes, I saw an empire spreading out a sleepy mile
heading out to Ellis Isle.

So zip it up, zip it up, if you're standing on a subway.
Sitting down, sitting down, watch your seat.
If you like, ride a bike, it's better for the city.
Spinning wheels, spinning wheels, spinning wheels.

Take me downtown, bring me to life
and when you're down, there will be life.
