"Brooklyn" as written by and Jonathan Gleaton Tim Brantley....
I've got a sunset flight on Tuesday night
I've got a girl to see
I've got a souvenir, one of them postcards here
That says "New York City"
I took the gray L Train underwater
Now, I'm standing on a Williamsburg beach
And passing river and grand things that are out of my hands
Don't make much sense to me

And I'm in Brooklyn, baby
And I've been waiting for a New York sign
But it's hard to find
My heart was burning, baby
Twisting and turning but I'll just hang on
Til the end of the ride, like you said
Yeah, I know

I took the Circle Line across the Hudson
Reached out to feel the night time wind
I didn't realize until I was wanting to talk
I was alone again
I gave a gypsy a buck for her to read my luck
Course, it was coming in
And as I stared at the lines in my hands
My plans, well, they had changed again

And it said, a night in Brooklyn, baby
And I've been waiting for a New York sign
But it's hard to find
My heart was burning, baby
Twisting and turning but I'll just hang on
Til the end of the ride, like you said
Yeah, I know

And uh huh, uh huh
We saw a rose and a riot, oh
Oh, and the tag-a-long twins ain't got nothing to say
But they represent the feeling of the color of gray
And uh huh, uh huh
You know I'm meeting new people, oh
But every hand I shake, I swear, it takes me further from you
It's what I've been thinking every time I trade a "How do you do?"
In Brooklyn

And I'm in Brooklyn, baby
And I've been waiting for a New York sign
But it's hard to find
My heart was burning, baby
Twisting and turning but I'll just hang on
Til the end of the ride, like you said
Yeah, I know

And all the chances blown and all the life-goes-on's
Can't get the best of me
I'll still be kicking around on Castleberry Nights
Til I'm too tired to sleep
