Lyrics

10. THEN CAME YOU (Music and Lyric by Louis Rosen)

I came to New York on my own. I came to New York on a dare. I came to New York, came to find my future… Then came you, then came you. Then came you…

I looked for myself in the crowd. I looked for my voice in the din. I looked for my path with no map to guide me… Then came you, then came you. Then came you…

You came like a light through the fog. You came like a strong wind at sea. You came here for me. You came here for you, and your story — our story…

The city was rust on the street. Ambition would claw through the dust. Illusion and lust in the bars and doorways… Then came you, then came you. Then came you…

If you fall eight times, rise up nine. Fall down nine times, rise up ten — then rise again. It’s no failure to fall. If a fall comes it deepens the story — your story — our story…

I came to New York on my own. I came to New York on a quest. I came to New York, came to find my future… Then came you, then came you. Then came you…you…then came you.
