                          G                     D
                          I've been here since '81
                                      Em
                             That's a long time
                             C                    D
                        I've seen all there is to see

                         G              D
                         Had a space on Astor Place
                                      Em
                               Had it all once
                                        C
                              Now these streets
                                   D          G
                               Are my reality

                                  Because
                                D
                                New York City
                             Am
                             Don't mean nothing
                             G          Em 
                 It's just a good place when you're running
                D                  Am                   Em
                Lights they cut so bright they make you bleed

                    D             Am
                    Neon children live their lives there
                       G             Em
                       Mad magicians tinsel nightmares
                    D                  Am          Em
                    Still you know I'm never gonna leave

                    [You're on your own from now on :)]

                       Never sleep alone on the subway
                       Never walk alone on the tracks
                 Never take a ride to the edge of your mind
                       Unless you've got a ticket back
                       Don't believe in T.V. preachers
                      Don't believe in talk show stars
              Never follow trends if they turn on your friends
                 Just be sure you know who your friends are

                       'Cause if you're running blind
                             On a refueled mind
                            Better watch the time
                        Careful you don't go too far

                      Never burn the bridges before you
                        Never burn the bridges behind
                  Don't burn the one that you're walking on
                         Gonna hit the water in time

                        Don't believe in expectations
                       Don't believe in shooting stars
                  If you make a stand on a dead empty hand
                        Never let 'em see your cards

                       'Cause if you're running blind
                             On a refueled mind
                            Better watch the time
                        Careful you don't go too far
                                   Too far

                                New York City
                             Don't mean nothing
                 It's just a good place when you're running
                    Still you know I'm never gonna leave
