Snow Patrol - New York Lyrics




If you were here beside me instead of in New York
If the curve of you was curved on me
I’d tell you that I loved you before I ever knew you
'Cause I loved the simple thought of you
If our hearts are never broken and there’s no joy in the mending
There’s so much this hurt can teach us both
There’s distance and there’s silence, your words have never left me
They’re the prayer that I say every day

Come on, come out, come here, come here
Come on, come out, come here, come here
Come on, come out, come here, come here
Come on, come out, come here, come here
The lone neon nights and the ache of the ocean
And the fire that was starting to spark
I miss it all, from the love to the lightning
And the lack of it snaps me in two

If you were here beside me instead of in New York
In the arms you said you'd never leave
I'd tell you that it's simple and it was only ever thus
There is nowhere else that I belong

Come on, come out, come here, come here
Come on, come out, come here, come here
Come on, come out, come here, come here
Come on, come out, come here, come here
The lone neon nights and the ache of the ocean
And the fire that was starting to spark
I miss it all from the love to the lightning
And the lack of it snaps me in two

Just give me a sign, there’s an end and not beginning
To the quiet chaos driving me mad
The lone neon nights and the walls of the ocean
And the fire that is starting to go out

  27. Varun Solanki

    Any one listening on september 2019.?

  28. Pol B

    Early 2014 i just flew from europe to US for a business trip and I was catching a connecting flight from NYC to LA, and in the spare hour i had, as we all do, i thought of how far i was from home, and the people that i loved... So i just checked what they were up to, and scrolling around the feeds i saw that the girl i liked gave a lone like to one song, this song, by that time i was starting to think i'd never get to her... (it was probably just that she was watching Grey's anatomy to be honest) but the moment i saw this i knew i had to keep on keeping on, so i did. Now its 2019 and our relationship is long gone, but i'll be forever grateful for the love i had, and someway somehow this song always brings me there, and reminds me it's always worth it

  29. Sandra Strand

    Very nice and sad song 💕💕 gets a little sad 💕😭😭

  30. oppa noona

  33. mac carthaigh

  37. happy life

    Grey's anatomy or vampire diaries??.

  38. Jeremy Wilson

    If you were here beside me....👌

  39. Smarties Aredelicioso

    I feel so crazy and that is such a stereotypically Indigenous thing to be labeled as when all you speak is emotional truth that others don't like to hear but I would stop if there was a bigger reason to do so. But if this is all just some science experiment and I am just a joke than leave me again to rot and die and maybe we will see each other in the next life where I may have the power but would perhaps never misuse it. Then again, maybe I already did and this is all my karmic debt to be paid.

  40. monnix2001

    If you were here beside me, instead of in New York

    If our hearts are never broken and there's no joy in the mending

    Come on, come out, come here, come here
    Come on, come out, come here, come here
    Come on, come out, come here, come here
    The lone neon lights and the ache of the ocean
    And the fire that was starting to spark
    I miss it all, from the love to the lightning
    And the lack of it snaps me in two
    If you were here beside me, instead of in New York
    In the arms you said you'd never leave
    I'd tell you that it's simple and it was only ever thus

    The lone neon lights and the ache of the ocean,
    And the fire that was starting to spark
    I miss it all from the love to the lightning
    And the lack of it snaps me in two
    Just give me a sign, there's an end with a beginning
    To the quiet chaos driving me back
    The lone neon lights and the warmth of the ocean
    And the fire that was starting to go out

  62. María Sáez

    Here again.

  63. J. W

    First time listening to this song. It's much more powerful than a lot of the superficial drivel that gets put out these days. His songs, voice , videos convey something deeper. I find Gary very soulful in the way artists used to be more. This song is so atmospheric and sad. It gets me right in the heart. Wanting, longing for someone far away and feeling lonely in a crowd...

  64. Cherry Katzen

    I don't know why don't find this beautiful song in Spotify :(

  65. Erika Perez

    2019 and this perfect song is not n Spotify 😢😢😢
