CAPO on first fret!

A        D
New York City
      A                  E
Where all your girls are pretty
         F#m                   D
All your men are running from somewhere 
         E            A
Making a name for themselves 

Are you running from something 
Or did you come from nothing 
Are you testing the Lord 
With the cards that you've been dealt 

Where do you find peace 
In the middle of the city 
Hard enough to find a friend 
When everyone's starting over again 

I feel like a child 
In a world that seems shapeless 
When I am most afraid 
Is when I get sucked back in 

Yeah, you came here with nothing 
And your leaving with the same 
Sometimes the road that you were walking on 
Is going the wrong way 

Just come as you are 
When you leave you will be changed 
Everyday is a gift, everyday is a gift 
And it's all slipping away 

Now if you leave 
Will you feel defeated 
Cause you didn't take from the city 
As much as the city took from you 

What if you'd stayed 
What if you'd done what you were thinking 
I'd rather you give up on life in the city 
Than giving up on life too 

It must be hard to live 
In the midst of all those buildings 
Where the changing of the wind 
Don't seem a miracle at all 

And by the hands of man 
It's a maze of bad habits 
Where the rabbit in the hat 
Is just a train in the fog 

Yeah, you came here with nothing 
And your leaving with the same 
Sometimes the road that you were walking on 
Is going the wrong way 

Just come as you are 
When you leave you will be changed 
Everyday is a gift, everyday is a gift 
And it's all slipping away 

Follow your dreams 
But beware of the illusions 
You won't feel the void in your heart 
With a bank statement and a car 

What is it worth, what is it worth 
Have you given up on freedom 
You spent your life earning the keys to set you free 
When you were free all along 

New York City 
Where all your girls are pretty 
All your men are running from somewhere 
Making a name for themselves 

Are you running from something 
Or did you come from nothing 
Are you testing the Lord 
With the cards that you've been dealt
