                          this is new york, new york
                          and i'm burning under the
                          city stars.

                          cold coffee is crawling
                          over the bed-side table;
                          my fingers have gone
                                  numb at the tips -
                          arctic fantasies of
                                smothering angels
                          consume me.

                          dew steams into a
                          ghostly veil and we
                          are powerless against
                          the unrelenting specters
                          that dwindle in the corner
                          of our eyes - super
                          natural apparitions.

                          childhood dreams are
                          dead to us, forgotten
                          paperbacks that lie in
                          the basement of your
                          dead grandmother's
                          apartment.

                          water kelpies wait
                          down by the river,
                          knowing that with
                          time we will fall
                          to the
                                  bottom.

                          i stick around at
                          the station, frowning
                          as stranger after stranger
                          passes me by and none of
                          them are you.

                          this is new york, new york
                          and i'm frost-bound under these
                          twilight stars.
my city, my home.

I don't live in the city either :P

I called new york 'the city' because when most people hear it, all they can imagine is a city... and not the beautiful mountains, fog rising in the morning.... (that's the new york i know.)

Oh, sorry. You're right, people forget there's more about New York than the city.
