and we’ll have our way
and i’m holding your hand
thinking about the words to say
and i’m thinking about the hands you’ll meet
the people that you’ll shake
along the way
along your way

we are walking after you
are you holding on
we are faltered after you
but you’re feeling of so wrong

and we’ll have our way with all of you
what is this world coming too
i am walking
and you still, you’re talking
you talk to much
oh new york
had the craze you wanted
now you’re swimming in it
here we are the fireplace we lit
isn’t lit

i am faltered after you
are you holding on
we are walking after you
cause i feel whats in your love
i would recall whats in you after all
but you’re feeling oh so right

i am stronger everyday for you
i am stronger everyday
we both know we can be like this
are you holding on
we both know you feel above this
but you’re feeling oh so wrong
i am walking after you
are you holding on
we are walking after you
we are walking after you

    General CommentI think this song is about a relationship that fell through because the other person moved away ("New York City/ Had the craze you wanted"). The person (guy) who didn't leave is still holding on to the hope that things haven't changed even though the other moved away. He thinks she still cares about him and he cares about her ("We both know we feel about this/ Are you hanging on? We both know we feel about this/ But you're feeling oh so wrong") and he refuses that they give up... so he's holding on and "walking after" her.

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy who is with a girl and he is unsure of their relationship. He knows he loves the girl, but she is always a little out of his reach, even though they are together. He cannot believe that he is actually with her and thinks only of the people she will meet and things she will do after they break up.
