    "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
