lyrics

The train out of New York is shuddering to life
I’m leaving now, I’m heading westward
it’s too late to change my mind
I’d have left a note, but your bed’s emptier than mine
and this whole city feels too quiet like a house after a crime

I’m going home, going home

baby, it’s hard
when it ends before it starts
you walked across the bridge while I walked uptown
to find somewhere that wasn’t in the dark

and the lights were still lit in Times Square
and I could see the string that tied my heart to your heart

I’m going home, going home

that was the winter we were buried to our eyes
I dig out my parents’ car and then I thank God you’re alive
you always loved the city more than I could if I tried
but can’t you see the stars now that there isn’t so much light?

I’m going home, going home

baby, it’s hard
when things just fall apart
you walked across the bridge while I walked uptown
carrying your sweater in my arms

and the lights were still lit in Times Square
and I could see the string that tied my heart to your heart

I’m going home, going home
going home, going home
