new york state of mind

i’m daydreaming. neil gaiman said it’s not bad to daydream, because this is where ideas come from.

so now, here i am, in the “greyhound bus on the hudson river line…”

this is where i should be.

Some folks like to get away, take a holiday from the neighborhood
Hop a flight to Miami beach or Hollywood.
I’m taking a greyhound on the Hudson river line-
I’m in a New York state of mind.
I seen all the movie stars in their fancy cars and their limousines,
Been high in the Rockies under the evergreens,
But I know what I’m needing and I don’t want to waste more time-
I’m in a New York state of mind.
It was so easy living day by day
Out of touch with the rhythm and the blues,
But now I need a little give and take,
The New York times, the daily news…
It comes down to reality-and its fine with me cause Ive let it slide,
Don’t care if its Chinatown or riverside,
I don’t have any reasons, I’ve left them all behind-
I’m in a New York state of mind.
