"New York" as written by Thomas William Thacker, Theo Goutzinakis, Gabriel Julian Mantle and Steven Fairweather....
Verse 1:
How long would you
wait and watch
your world turn
away another hour
another day standing
to your own grave
and If I die before
I get back to New
York I won't have
anything to show
all my life I
hesitate and
watch the world
passed by it never
seems to change

Chorus 1:
And be free
from this aching
Never be where
I name in

Verse 2:
What else can I
say I got this
all inside the
cage I sit on fire
the weather plan
no one hears it
in my brain and
and If I die before
I get back to New
York I won't have
anything to share

Chorus 2:
And be free
from this aching
Never be where
I name in

Verse 3:
all my life I
hesitate and
watch the world
passed by it never
seems to change
and If I die before
I get back to New
York I won't have
anything to show

Chorus 3:
And be free
from this aching
Never be where
I name in
And be free
from this aching
Never be where
I name in
