Song Description

A bit of fun - city comparisons - and how nothing compares to New York.

Wanting to experience New York just one more time - before it's all too late - sparked this off.

A very unique pop tune. I love the clarinets at the head. It reminds a bit of Supertramp and early Billy Joel. Loved it!

Lyrics

WAKE UP IN NEW YORK
© 2018 by Jamie Ambrose

I want to wake up in New York
Find myself just a little bit younger
Enough to feel the hunger
For all life has to give

I want to wake up in New York
Find myself just a whole lot richer
That's the picture, baby,
I want to paint for us to live

(Chorus/hook)
Wake up with you, baby,
Wake up, everybody:
Life is too short
I want to wake up one more time in New York

Now I could wake up in LA
Sun and sand - I guess it's OK
But no way
The West Coast rhythm's not right for me

Give me Paris or London
At least I'll get my European on
But that's still wrong
When a morning in Manhattan is just what I need

(Chorus/hook)
Wake up with you, baby,
Wake up, everybody:
Life is too short
I want to wake up one more time in New York

Wake up with you, baby
Wake up, everybody:
Life is too short
I want to wake up one more time in New York
