Testo new york - u2

In New York freedom looks like

Too many choices

In New York I found a friend

To drown out the other voices





Voices on a cell phone

Voices from home

Voices of the hard sell

Voices down a stairwell

In New York

Just got a place in New York





In New York summers get hot

Well into the hundreds

You can't walk around the block

Without a change of clothing





Hot as a hair dryer in your face

Hot as handbag and a can of mace

New York

I just got a place in New York





New York New York



In New York you can forget

Forget how to sit still

Tell yourself you will stay in

But it's down to Alphaville





New York

New York
New York





New York
New York

New York





The Irish been coming here for years

Feel like they own the place

They got the airport
city hall

Asphalt
asphalt

They even got the police





Irish
Italians
Jews and Hispanics

Religious nuts
political fanatics in the stew

Happily not like me and you

That's where I lost you





New York

New York
New York

New York

New York
New York





New York

New York





In New York I lost it all

To you and your vices

Still I'm staying on to figure out

My midlife crisis





I hit an iceberg in my life

You know I'm still afloat

You lose your balance
lose your wife

In the queue for the lifeboat





You got to put the women and children first

But you've got an unquenchable thirst for New York





New York

New York

New York
New York





In the stillness of the evening

When the sun has had its day

I heard your voice whispering

Come away now





New
New York

New...

New York
