New York Summer

Louisa Melcher

Lyrics

We're eating cold Chinese food

Playing kids' games in Central Park

And I know our days are numbered

But we're laughing in the dark

And I'll miss those nights

Dancing in the middle of the street

And I'll hold on tight

If I thought we had a chance of keeping in the heat

And in a different city

We would make it through the fall

But it's New York in September

And I think we've lost it all

It's a lifetime in one hot Manhattan summer

It's the view from a fire escape

I'm scared to live but I'm scared to stay

When this heat wave finally breaks

And we're fighting in the grocery store

And I love you

But I don't know if I like you anymore

And we're running through the city

In an August thunderstorm

And you drive me fucking crazy

But at least I'm never bored

In a world of endless summers you'd be mine

And I'd be yours

But the sidewalk's cooling down now

That was summer in New York (in New York)

And I miss those nights

Dancing in the middle of the street

And I'd hold on tight

If we had another chance of keeping in the heat

In a different city

We might have made it through the fall

But it was New York in September

And the writing's on the wall

Yes, New York in September

When we had and lost it all (yeah you said)

You said you would keep me warm

Well now I'm pulling on a sweater

But I've never known

A colder month than New York that September

Yeah, I've never known

A colder month than New York that September

For every mood
