New York (live Notre Dame 10-10-01)

In New York, facing us all, a lot of choices
In New York I found some friends to drown out the other voices
Voices on a cell phone, voices from home
'Are you alright baby, not staying alone?'
New York, I've got a place in New York...

In New York summers get hot, well into the hundreds
You can't walk around the block without a change of clothing
Hot as a hairdryer in the space
You turn it up and you stick around the place
New York, I just got a place... New York

New York... New York
New York... New York

In New York you can forget, forget how to sit still
And in New York you can forget
Just how strong the city's will

New York, New York
New York, New York

It's in New York...
New York...

The Irish been coming here for years
Acting like they own the place
They got the airport, city hall, concrete, asphalt
They even got the police
Irish, Italian, Jews, Blacks, Hispanics

Religious nuts, political fanatics don't belong
That's not a New York kinda song
What's going on?

New York!
New York, New York

New York...
New York...

In New York, lots of problems, mid life crisis
It's not a problem, it's just... too many choices
Hit an iceberg in my life
But yeah I'm still afloat
I lost my balance, you lost your wife
In the queue for the lifeboat
You're putting the women and children first
I've just got an unquenchable thirst for New York

New York, New York
New York, New York
New York, New York

In the stillness of the evening
When the sun has had its day
I thought I heard you whispering
Come away child

New York
New York

Those are the live lyrics of 'New York' live from Notre Dame taken from u2wanderer.com... Pretty intense.
