The Breakers

The Breakers - New York City

606 views 8 months ago
"A Stax-like rhythm section, Stones-y guitars, and some of the most soulful singing I've ever heard, delivering songs both Smokey Robinson and Van Morrison would be proud of." Little Steven Van Zandt

New York City is a track from The Breakers self-titled album released in 2011 produced by 'Little' Steven van Zandt. Song written by Anders Bruus and 'Little' Steven.

New York City
(Anders Bruus/Steven van Zandt)
Another closing time, another cigarette
Feeding a bad jazz habit - and it ain't satisfied yet
Shake it up, break it down, New York City has it's own sound
Shake it up, break it down, danger watching all around

Steam is rising, glimmering from the broken streetlight glass
It's the boulevard where the old priests sold salvation after midnight mass
Shake it up, break it down, New York City has it's own sound
Shake it up, break it down, pleasure waiting all around

Say what? I couldn't quite hear you
You looking for something? Are you talking to me?
You better know what you want, and how to defend it
In New York City

Feel and hear the naked fear - after the laughter stops
Take your pleasure where you can, terrorists on every block
Shake it up, break it down, New York City has it's own sound
It ain't over, it don't end, New York City's born again

Say what? I couldn't quite hear you
You looking for something? Are you talking to me?
You better know what you want, and how to defend it
In New York City

The hunger's always palpable, the memories bittersweet
There's endless possibilities, the city seeks fresh meat

Did she fall or was she pushed? Somebody call CSI
Just another dream denied, just another sidewalk chalk line
Desperation, sticky hot, the wrong word starts a fight
Lust and crime in equal measure, it's the concrete jungle on a summer's night

What? I couldn't quite hear you
You looking for something? Are you talking to me?
Say what? I couldn't quite hear you
Nobody saw nothin', are you talking to me?
You better know what you want, and how to defend it
In New York City
