like my mind


to the girl in new york city
lonely as the night is pretty
i won’t give up writing songs

to the girl in new york city
from the performer who never even performs
he just sings to himself
but his songs are for you and for no one else

they tell me i’m supposed to be more like them
but i couldn’t care to be further from their faces
they tell me i’m supposed to be more like them
but I’ll tell them all off too

so tell me I’m something
tell me I’m worth your time
i won’t be here forever
but that’s further down the line

tell me you’ll save me
all i need is your lie
maybe i’m good for something
maybe you’ll like my mind
maybe you’ll like my mind
maybe you'll like my mind

to the girl in new york city
lonely as the night is pretty
i won’t give up writing songs

to the girl in new york city
i wonder if it’s the same place i knew
it changes every June
and that’s bad for me but good for you

they tell me i’m supposed to be more like them
but i couldn’t care to be further from their faces
they tell me i’m supposed to be more like them
but I’ll tell them all off too

so tell me I’m something
tell me I’m worth your time
i won’t be here forever
but that’s further down the line

so tell me you’ll save me
all i need is your lie
maybe i’m good for something
maybe you’ll like my mind
maybe you’ll like my mind
maybe you'll like my mind

maybe you'll like my mind

they tell me i’m supposed to be more like them
but i couldn’t care to be further from their faces
they tell me i’m supposed to be more like them
but I’ll tell them all off too

to the girl in new york city
from the performer who never even performs
he just sings to himself
