lyrics

321 East 6th, I waited on a stoop for you
Overwhelmed and drinking a beer
Couldn't understand we were finally there

R train uptown, at least I think that was it
We mostly just got cabs

In the middle of falling apart
I was just falling in love
Terrified at first, feeling so hurt
But New York City you made me better
New York City you made me better

2nd Ave I felt you had all that we needed
Two tired girls with tired minds
Feeling a little defeated

321, do you remember how I cried when I stumbled out of the taxi?
Saying "Why doesn't life ever go to plan?"
You held my hand till I forgot it

And I knew it didn't make me a brand new person
I know I carry all the same shit as before
But you made me tougher and maybe a little bit more attractive
New York City I fell in love when I wasn't looking
I fell in love when I wasn't looking

I couldn't meet your eyes when we headed to the airport
We'd found a second home
New friends already, acquaintances in the street
Oh NYC we're yours to keep

New York City my friend
It was never the end
Leaving is only the beginning
We'll be back in shittier apartments
We'll be back in shittier apartments

321 East 6th
I waited on a stoop for you
