Song Meaning
Verse 1
I can't remember what I planned tomorrow
I can't remember when it's time to go
When I look in the mirror
Tracing lines with a pencil
I remember what came before
Verse 2
I wanted to think there was endless love
Until I saw the light dim in your eyes
In the dead of the night I found out
Sometimes there's love that won't survive
Verse 3
New York City
Such a beautiful disease
New York City
Such a beautiful,
Such a beautiful disease
Verse 4
Laura kept all her disappointments
Locked up in a box behind her closet door
She pulled the blinds and listened to the thunder
With no way out from the family store
Verse 5
We all told her things could get better
When you just say goodbye
I'll lay awake one more night
Caught in a vision I want to deny
Verse 6
And did I mention the note that I found
Taped to my locked front door
It talked about no regrets
As it slipped from my hand to the scuffed tile floor
Verse 7
I rode the train for hours on end
And watched the people pass me by
It could be that it has no end
Just an action junkie's lullaby
Verse 8
New York City
We were full of the stuff that every dream rested
As if floating on a lumpy pillow sky
Caught up in the whole illusion
That dreams never pass us by
Came to a tattooed conclusion
That the big one was knocking on the door
What started as a mass delusion
Would take me far from the place I adore
Verse 9
New York City
