I stumbled upon this tonight and when I watched it my heart began to ache. I love New York so much. I have visited numerous times and still, I have so much yet to see and do. I have to get back. It’s calling me.
Some folks like to get away, take a holiday from the neighbourhood
Hop a flight to Miami Beach or to Hollywood
But I’m taking a Greyhound on the Hudson River Line
I’m in a New York state of mind. I’ve seen all the movie stars
In their fancy cars and their limousines.
Been high in the Rockies under the evergreens.
But I know what I’m needing, and I don’t want to waste more time
I’m in a New York state of mind. It was so easy living day by day,
Out of touch with the rhythm and blues, but now I need a little give and take
The New York Times, The Daily News
It comes down to reality, and it’s fine with me ’cause I’ve let it slide.
Don’t care if it’s Chinatown or on Riverside.
I don’t have any reasons I’ve left them all behind
I’m in a New York state of mind
