Owl City – New York City lyrics

[Verse 1]
I’m digging through the glove box
I thought I had a map in here
The driver’s door doesn’t lock
I bought the car my junior year
There’s candy in my backpack
And you can pick our soundtrack
We’re heading for the East Coast tonight
So pack your bags and hold on tight
Cause we’re taking off
We’re taking off

We’re taking off

[Chorus]
Run away with me
We’re on the way to New York City
Take my hand and see
Manhattan never looked so pretty
Travel light and see the world right
You’ll never know if you never go so
Run away with me
And say hello to New York City

[Verse 2]
Feet up on the dashboard
We’re driving with the windows down
Did you forget your phone cord?
We’ll buy one in the next small town
Get dinner at an IHOP
A shower at a truck stop
We’ll listen to some Johnny Cash
Take my hand and don’t look back
Cause we’re moving on

We’re moving on

[Chorus]
Run away with me
We’re on the way to New York City
Take my hand and see
Manhattan never looked so pretty
Travel light and see the world right
You’ll never know if you never go so
Run away with me
And say hello to New York City

Run away
Run away
Run away
Run away

[Chorus]
Run away with me
We’re on the way to New York City
Take my hand and see
Manhattan never looked so pretty
Travel light and see the world right
You’ll never know if you never go so
Run away with me…

[Outro]
Stroll the downtown streets
And tell me that you don’t feel giddy
Lady Liberty
Ain’t throwing us a wink or is she?
Travel light and see the world right
You’ll never know if you never go so
Run away with me
And say hello to New York City
Say hello to New York City
Say hello to New York City

Parisi – No Refuge (feat. RZA)

[Verse 1]
I don’t understand how you’re comparin’ a man from a land
That was set to be a beacon of light for men escaping the plight of tyranny
And the wearily poverty-stricken children
Who are sincerely innocent to the bombs that dropped on their city
That cause disfigurement and injuries
Or the women that seek education and medicine
But are spiritually oppressed by those who don’t
Understand the prophet’s teachings clearly
As the yearly death toll rises in Syria
Creating more refugees
How can we dispute the truth that [?] man all fall down from the same tree?

[Drop]

[Verse 2]
I’m an innocent immigrant tryna immigrate to a land built by the immigrants
Where the face of a former slave became the face of the President
Where the hearts of the depraved men once brought his ships and crossed the oceans
Searchin’ for a place to practice their religion out in the open
And thus the country was made, yes
Let’s make America great again
But not a place that’s filled with bigotry, racism and hate again
Let’s fulfill the need of all men from city streets to coal mines
But don’t forget that humanity is the goldmine

[Chorus]
I wanna fall at the feet of Lady Liberty
From the Redwood Forest to the Gulf Streams
To the land of the brave, and the free
Where there’s freedom of speech, freedom to teach
But they won’t let me in, no they won’t let me in
They won’t let me in, no they won’t let me in
They won’t let me in, no they won’t let me in
They won’t let me in, no

[Drop]

[Outro]
