Song Description

A man longs to return home to New York City. Forced to leave, he's wandered the world for years and fears he may never get back to the city he loves.

Story Behind the Song

This song was written in response to a movie listing in Broadjam.

Lyrics

I Heart New York

I met a man the other day
He was walking my way
He looked like he had no home

And his clothes were all worn
And his face was all worn
And he looked like he had no one

He said I'm a wanderer
I've wandered far away
I've been on this road so long
That I can't count the days
I wear this old shirt it helps me
When I've lost my way
And it says

It says
I heart New York

So we talked for awhile
Then he turned and he smiled
He said New York was my hometown

He showed me his kids
The house in Queens where he'd lived
And the day that it all went wrong

Now I'm just a wanderer
Wish I was home again
It seems like this road's so long
There's no way back my friend
I wear this old shirt it helps
When I feel I'm at my end
And it says

It says
I heart New York
I heart New York

I met a man the other day
He was from New York City
Some day he's gonna follow his heart back home
