Oh, New York.

Well, New York. You’ve been good to me.
You taught me to push and you taught me to pull.
You were harsh and you were sweet.
You were hot and you were cold.
Oh, New York. You’ve been good to me.

You taught me to work and you taught me play.
You hurt me and you taught me.
You gave and you took.
Oh New York, you’ve been good to me.

You were not easy.
You were beautiful and sad.
You were by far not perfect, but
oh New York, you’ve been good to me.

You taught me to be patient and calm.
You taught me to accept much and many.
You made me into someone else.
Oh New York, you’ve been good to me.

You didn’t give me time to think.
You gave me work.
You taught me to think.
Oh New York, you’ve been good to me.

You opened the vault to let people in.
You made my heart beat.
You were loving and you were scary.
Oh New York, you’ve been good to me.

So long, so far.
So far, so long,
Goodbye New York, oh well
- you’ve been more, than just good to me.
