You can have Manhattan, I know it’s for the best
I’ll gather up the avenues and leave them on your doorstep
And I’ll tip toe away so you wont have to say you heard me leave

You can have Manhattan, I know it’s what you want
The bustle and the buildings, the weather in the fall
And I’ll bow out of place to save you some space for somebody new
You can have Manhattan, cause I can’t have you

You can have Manhattan, the one we used to share
The one where we were laughing and drunk on just being there
Hang on to the reverie, could you do that for me
Cause I’m just too sad to
You can have Manhattan, cause I can’t have you

And so it goes one foot after the other ‘till black and white begin to color in
And I know that holding us in place is simply fear of what’s already changed

You can have Manhattan, I’ll settle for the beach
And sunsets facing westward with sand beneath my feet
I’ll wish this away, this missing the days when I was one half of two


And you can have Manhattan cause I can’t have you…

—Everything about this song is just so beautiful and sad.

*sobs* Feels. All over the place.
