in new york, at 22


i still think about you
living in new york, you were 22
in a white t shirt, in designer shoes
how could i forget how they looked on you
on your way to work it was almost noon
how i had my eyes set on you
blowing kisses like only a queen could do

I fall faster than I need to
that just shows how much I need you

but love is not new
it's just a feeling that seems so close to you
if you think it belongs to you
don't close your eyes you'll see it float so far from you
when you're in new york at 22

but i was still hopeless and that makes two of us i guess
i only wish i could really tell you how i’ve been
you know i’ve seen you less and less since that weekend
that came and went
it’s over now but i can’t forget your silhouette

I fall faster than I need to
that just shows how much I need you

but love is not new
it's just a feeling that seems so close to you
if you think it belongs to you
don't close your eyes you'll see it float so far from you
when you're in new york at 22

I heard you're seeing somebody else
well that's not love that's all about yourself
I'm sure it's hard for you to tell
but love is

love is not new
it's just a feeling that seems so close to you
if you think it belongs to you
don't close your eyes you'll see it float so far from you

i still think about you
living in new york, you were 22
in a white t shirt, in designer shoes
how could i forget how they looked on you
how I looked on you
