about

"Manhattan" is about my city.  I've lived here all my life and have come to know it intimately - for better or for worse.  It is a city of contradictions and of people trying to find their way.  It is a city where happiness, tragedy, anger, and love intersect on street corners daily.  I tried to capture some of that in this song.  

“Manhattan” takes you on a visual journey tied to simple emotion and dreamlike madness. It is caught halfway between reality and the abstract - much like the island of Manhattan itself.

lyrics

Lights in the big city
Burn through the buildings’ silhouette
You turn to the faces pretty
And hope you’re not all washed up yet

You travel far away today
You travel far away
And I
I would have loved to help you stay

I love you when you’re wicked
And I love when you're good
Turn away all the foolish children
Who’ve meant to harm you when they could

You travel far away today
You travel far away
And I
I would have loved to help you stay
