New York City – Among Savages

All rights go to the amazing Among Savages. Off the CD “Wanderings of an Illustrative Mind.” LYRICS. New York City, where all your girls are pretty All your men are running from somewhere Making a name for themselves Are you running from something or did you come from nothing? Are you testing the Lord with the cards that you’ve been dealt? Where do you find peace in the middle of the city? Hard enough to find a friend when everyone’s starting over again I feel like a child in a world that seems shapeless When I am most afraid is when I get sucked back in Yeah, you came here with nothing and you leave here with the same Sometimes the road that you were walking on is going the wrong way Just come as you are When you leave, you will be changed ‘Cause every day is a gift, every day is a gift And it’s all slipping away Now if you leave, will you feel defeated? Cause you didn’t take from the city as much as the city took from you What if you had stayed, what if you’d done what you were thinking? I’d rather give up on life in the city than have given up on life, too It must be hard to live in the midst of all those buildings Where the changing of the wind don’t seem a miracle at all Don’t bother end to end, it’s a maze of bad habits Where the rabbit in the hat is just a train in the fog Yeah, you came here with nothing and you leave here with the same Sometimes the road that you were walking on is going the wrong way Just come as you are When you leave, you will be changed
