I just heard you're leaving
One less soul to call a friend
One less night in my weekend
Yeah

I question your reasons
I'm not one to give advice
Tell you how to live your life
I said hey
There's nothing there for you but pain and fear
Live on the crest of chasing fame
If no one knows your face then no one knows your name
I said hey
And I hope I didn't let you down
Well we all want what's best for you
I just hope that you've thought this through

Well I never really thought that you would ever leave this town
'Cause you're not the kind of girl to ever let us down
But if you decide to leave
Please take me to New York with you

All your funny little ways
Will be missed
And I will take your hand when you leave
l'll chase my words so I can't speak, yeah
We both know we had a chance
We chose faith instead of sense
And we all knew the truth
That New York girl, she loved you (hey, hey)

And I envy what you wish to do
Yeah, leave this town and make a life
Get your name in neon lights
I said hey (hey)
But the city, it won't wait for you
lt crushes people's souls'
And keeps the devil on his toes

I never really thought that you ever leave this town
'Cause you're not the kind of girl to ever let us down
But if you decide to leave
Please take me to New York with you

Oh we all got up to see
The queen of town got up to leave
The last time we will ever see
We'll leave this place is history
Took me by the hand and she said
Come with me my friend
