    This is a song I wrote for a good friend of mine who lived in NYC and was in a pretty bad funk. They just couldn't snap out of it to see all the amazing opportunities and beautiful people and experiences that were all around them. I wrote this song to try and help them realize all that life is still good and turn a new, more positive leaf. Hopefully it inspires others to stay happy, get out of their apartments and spread the love!

    Lyrics:

    You spent most of your summer days out on the fire escapes,
    searching for your own face in the crowd,
    and you know deep down you'll never find yourself that way
    but you've never known another way how.

    So when a good thing comes along,
    you keep your sunglasses on,
    and when by the time you turn to look it's just a silhouette.
    So when you finally find yourself back in your better days,
    well those days have simply come and they have left.

    Yeah you see New York City from your fire escape,
    all the little people stepping over their sewer grates,
    and it seems nothing much can change the way you see yourself,
    when you wish that you were somebody else.

    And you don't kiss so you don't tell,,
    and I can't seem to tell your story well...
    That's 'cause I call it how I see it.
    I tell it how it is.
    I don't care about your dreamin',
    it don't matter how you feel.

    And it seems to me like you're scared of falling down,
    but baby you can't fall if you're already on the ground,
    so you button down your sweater as you zipper up your coat,
    so that not a single man could ever read the words you wrote,
    and you stay up there in your tower all alone.

    Yeah you see New York City from your fire escape,
    all those privileged people eatin' from their silver plates,
    and it seems nothing much can change the way you see yourself
    when you wish that you were somebody else.

    Oh you wish that you were somebody else,
    each and every day as you take your make-up off the shelf.
    Yeah it seems nothing much can change the way you see yourself when you wish that you were anybody else. Show less
