Wake up in New York
Put a comb through your hair
Don't you ever want to lie down
When there's no-one else around
I want to say this to you

I know I hurt you
You know you hurt me too
Don't you ever want to lie down
Close your eyes and leave the ground?
I want to get hold of you

I'll meet you in New York
By the drugstore on First Avenue
And then we will lie down
With the buildings all around
I want to say this to you
I want to say this to you

    General CommentI actually heard this on Brothers and Sisters and just had to find out what song it was. This is a really gorgeous song, and really emotive too. I think its pretty self explanatory, just really like when you just wanna lie next to someone and forget the world and forget the issues or fights in the relationship. Sometimes lying next to someone you love, with no words and no sounds needed, is the ultimate cure.
