Review

November, 22nd 2015
Almost 5 minutes of very active singing by several voices, both old and young. There are some references to the airport of JFK. The song includes two changes, beginning from a little one, like a spring creek, to a large flow as the Potomac river. And then it becomes a sad song with a slight rise again to receive the seal of sadness and melancholy romantic in this pop.

A Map of New York Song Lyrics


Think of each plaza, pier, and public park
How many sit there empty, lonely, dark?
Think of it for tomorrow's sake
Think of how you and I can make our mark
You and I, we can draw a brand-new grid
Everything you dreamed of as a kid
Give it a year and go with me
Soon enough you will say, 'look what we two did'
You've always had the right dream
We've always made a tight team
Now at last you're back exactly where you ought to be
So let's make a map of New York, you and me
Twenty-two Reed
A building, sidewalk shade
Now a memory that for Beth will never fade
And I could be planning city sites
Where memories just like this one might be made
Thirty-three Bond where I wrote my first book
Greenwich and Moore where I learned how to cook
The Center Street courts, I interned there
The joy of this job is everywhere I look
That market was my first job
That diner was my worst job
And everywhere around me are these lives I left behind
The tunnel where I laid (?)
The co-op where I made my first sale
They make a map of New York in my mind
Put a sticker on the map where you landed that first day
Put a pin on the (?), on the bridge, on the train, on JFK
On the street where I swore I'd afford a place someday
Every avenue and place
Every building every face
Of the lovers and the friends
The beginnings and the ends
Make a map of NYC
Where I live and who I'll be
And you'll find me
And you're feeling adrift, alone, apart
And suddenly life will somehow start
And a map of New York is written on your heart
I'm too old for all that sh*t
You'll be told I'm selling out
Then again, all these years, did I lose what I'm about?
On the street in the cold it's so hard to fight that doubt
Then you hear the tunnel hum
With the train about to come
And you surface to the street
Where you fall into the beat
You can trace the line to me
On a map of NYC
Right where I should be
Think of how human life will ebb and flow
People, and how they'll come and how they'll go
Remember the things we hoped and planned
Remember them and believe them
And you'll know
You'll know
We never walk a straight line
We never trust a street sign
But it's in the detour that we truly find our way
We always know the way home
As long as we can stay here we're home
And we make a map of work
And we make a map of play
And we make a map of New York every day
Ending the night and Twenty-Third and Third
Liz and her date who's hanging on each word
