In New York where everyone is in a rush
Doing something about everything from
The small things like what heart printed underpants
To get lucky in to the large things like
Saying goodbye to a loved one for the last time
It happens now as a couple disperses
With a heavy dread and tears filling his eyes
He knows who’s stronger and besides
She doesn’t have time to see him fall apart
This is New York and everyone is in a rush to continue on
Without missing a beat
