Take Him Back To New York City

This song is by Herman Düne and appears on the album Giant (2006).

And so the girls go,
"Hey, what's going on, why don't you sing a song?"
And I'm like,
"Well, here is a song I wrote for our new album. I wrote it when I missed New York, in the Autumn."

His heart is on the East Coast
His heart is very pretty
She's the one he loves the most
Take him back to New York City

I never thought that one could love anyone
For that long, I admit it
But now she's all that he can think of
Take him back to New York City

There are things that didn't work out with her
And it's a fucking pity
They could be so good together
Take him back to New York City

He wants to walk along the river
And check out the graffiti
See if their names have been sprayed over
Take him back to New York City

He wants to walk along the river
Where the sand is very gritty
He wants to stay with her forever
Take him back to New York City

And we all go, "Woo-woo"
("Woo" interlude)

He needs her more than he needs the light of day
He needs her like the light of day times sixty
He's going blind without her anyway
Take him back to New York City

No, it's not being naive
About what's wrong in the American society
But he just wants to live where she lives
Take him back to New York City

And he would sure miss his friends
And his job there, it would sure be shitty
But here his life makes no sense
Take him back to New York City

And it's not where they shot "Vertigo"
And it's not where they shot "ET"
But it's still where he wants to go
Take him back to New York City

It's so stupid they're apart
It is such a stupid stupidity
Take him back to his heart
Take him back to New York City

And again,
Take him back to New York City
What she say?
Take him back to New York City
Now you again,
Take him back to New York City
And we all go "woo woo woo woo"
