I'm jealous of the city, the way you spend your nights with her.
They say the girls are very pretty, but twenty-two too young to be hurt.
And the snow is gently falling and there's presents on the floor.
But this plane is leaving tomorrow.
New York handels heartbreak better than you, better than you. You, you.

Jealous of the pavement, the way you call the streets your home.
No I won't be negotiated, I hope you feel this in your bones.
You swear you're tired and lonely, but I hear she's hanging around.
You say it's love then assure me, New York handels heartbreak better than you.
Better than you, you, you.

And I been waiting, love, in a hotel room. You swear you gonna leave her.
And every christmas time I think of you, yes I do, yes I do.
Remember we danced you fumbled your steps but said you never let go.
Remember we cried for days at a time, but baby why won't you come home?
Cause I been waiting in New York for you. All for you, you, you.

I been waiting, waiting, waiting (I been waiting)

Baby I'm lonely.
New York, New York.
