i found a letter in the mail box today
and i said, thank you for your thoughts, but i'm done
i said that i would never build this up right here
and he said, that's why i can't work with you, son

but i can't let this go, i'm on my way
and you can only hold my diamond ring
i go crawling back to the city i love
'cause it's already taken everything

i'm going to coney island to have myself a dog
and reminisce why i still hate it here
it's all these people with their cotton candy eyes
it's so sweet
now put the train in gear

i can't let this go, i'm on my way
and you can only hold my diamond ring
i go crawling back to the city i love
'cause it's already taken everything

the ground is swallowing my options for release
and if it rains they might just disappear
i counted twenty seven birds up there today
i'm thinking that's why i still love it here

but i can't let this go i'm on my way
and you can only hold my diamond ring
i go crawling back to the city i love
'cause it's already taken everything
'cause it's already taken everything
