Footnotes

I've been living off and on in New York for a long time. I gave up my room three years ago to this girl, but I'm getting it back. It's a new Manhattan now, you know. If you go there, it's amazing how different it is now, culturally. A lot of people gravitated their historically, to this idea of America, for jobs, for industrial work. Traditionally, for immigrants, it was this entry point to the United States for freedom and all of this stuff that seems American, and I was taught at an early age of the importance of being American. So that song is basically a reflection of how New York has always been a prominent target for people of change. Now, going there, I find that it's heartbreaking, truly. ➡︎
