Manhattan Lyrics


You can have Manhattan
I know it's for the best
I'll gather up the avenues
And leave them on your doorstep
And I'll tip toe away
So you won't have to say
You heard me leave

You can have Manhattan
I know it's what you want
The bustle and the buildings
The weather in the fall
And I'll bow out of place
To save you some space
For somebody new

You can have Manhattan
'Cause I can't have you

Ah

You can have Manhattan
The one we used to share
The one where we were laughing
And drunk on just being there
Hang on to the reverie
Could you do that for me
'Cause I'm just too sad to

You can have Manhattan
'Cause I can't have you

And so it goes
One foot after the other
'Til black and white begin to color in
And I know
That holding us in place is simply fear
Of what's already changed

Ah

You can have Manhattan
I'll settle for the beach
And sunsets facing westward with
Sand beneath my feet
I'll wish this away
Just missing the days
When I was one half of two

You can have Manhattan
'Cause I can't have you

Manhattan
  • When Sara Bareilles moved from Los Angeles to New York she fell in love with the city but was forced to relinquish her boyfriend. She laments on this piano ballad:

    "You can have Manhattan
    'Cause I can't have you,"

    Bareilles describes this conflict between two worlds and the ensuing ending of her long-distance relationship by comparing the sandy beaches of LA with the bustle and buildings of Manhattan. She told VH1: "When I played this song for the folks at the label, they said 'We gotta get this in a Woody Allen film!'"
