Paul Simon New York Is My Home

The morning came today

With rain and sheets of grey

The subway rocked me out of bed

To take me on my way

Where I go, I go in style

Each and every mile

You know, I’m not alone

New York is my home

I got a girl up in the Bronx

She treats me like a king

I’ll give her anything she wants

She is my everything

She can be hard as concrete

Soft as a summer breeze

We can wake the dawn

New York is my home

New York is calling me

It’s on the phone

It’s like the rooftop songs

Up from the cobblestones

You will never hear me say

“The city street’s too loud”

I hear a gospel hymn

In every passing crowd

It trails me and it tails me down

To central park

Even after dark

New York is my home

New York is calling me

And now I find

The city never sleeps

It’s my state of mind

The breezes blow

And take me where the Hudson never flows

The harbour light shines on the piers

As all young lovers know

I can touch the world

As it sails in from everywhere

I’m not alone

New York is my home

New York is calling me

And now I find

The city never sleeps

It’s my state of mind

The breezes blow

And take me where the Hudson never flows

The harbour light shines on the piers

As all young lovers know

I can touch the world

As it sails in from everywhere

I’m not alone

New York is my home

I’m not alone

New York is my home
