In 2005 we travelled actoss the US for 10 weeks,. we spent 80 days, 18,000 miles, 37 states and 59 cities. 5 of those days were in New York City, this song is our interpretation of the great city and its difference to our home.
overcoming change and struggles to acheive your dreams. going to NYC to make it happen and how the city chews people up and spits them out leaving the strong to survive.
but never forgetting your home.
Late night. 3 in the morning.
Nothing to do but everything's going.
Make sense, big city in the sky.
Picture grand station, yes the real grand station.
Ask yourself, does this seem alright.
People don't close their eyes,
Awake from sunrise to sunrise x2
Bright lights, so pretty, except in New York City.
Mesmerizing, terrified, you feel paralyzed.
Home was safe, but this was much bigger
Like a loaded gun, finger on the trigger.
Wish you could freeze frame,
Take a picture...
A picture with your mind.
A picture out of time
A picture with your mind,
A picture out of time x2
Every 2 blocks is like a new city,
But the people, I said the people
Are there to be heard and New York listens,
New York listens.
Large falls, fast steel travelings so unreal.
Far away from Portland's sweet smell
Huge comparitivley as we all see why
Captured while under its spell
Under its spell,
As far as you can tell, your under its spell
New Yorks Spell
Bright lights sure look pretty
Here in my home city
Freeze frame, 4x 7 pictures stuck in time
Home was safe (fade out)
Home is sage
Home was safe
