lyrics

LAZARUS IN BROOKLYN (Reid Paley)

I’m still here in Brooklyn
East River keep on callin' to me
Cos everything’s been said
You’ll love me when I’m dead
You’ll say that I’m too blind to see

You never see the one that gets you
You never get the one that you see
How many time I’m wrong
You know it won’t be long
You know that that be fine with me

[Sensitive Instrumental Interlude]

All my life
She calling out to me I know
I’ll never know if it’s true
If I had another chance
I’d do it just the same
Just wouldn’t do it
With you

I must’ve left my heart in Pittsburgh
You tell me baby how could it be
You know I never win
Just take it on the chin
Why settle for a fantasy

And I’m still here in Brooklyn
East River keep on callin' to me
Cos everything’s been said
You’ll love me when I’m dead
You’ll say that I’m too blind to see

You’ll say that I’m too blind to see
