new york city’s killing me lyrics – ray lamontagne

“new york city’s killing me”

there’s just soemthin’ about this hotel
got me wishin’ i was dead.
got to get out of new york city,
somewhere i can clear my head.

i was just kickin’ along the sidewalk,
no one looks you in the eye,
no one asks you how you doin’,
don’t seem to care if you live or die.

i just got to get me somewhere,
somewhere that i can feel free,
get me out of new york city, son,
new york city’s killin’ me.

it was just outside of nashville,
i met the woman of my dreams.
sure would like to get to know her,
maybe find out what it means.

i get so tired of all this concrete.
i get so tired of all this noise.
gotta get back up in the country,
and have a couple drinks with the good ole’ boys.

i just got to get me somewhere,
somewhere that i can be free,
get me out of new york city, son,
new york city’s killin’ me.
