The Only One

Lyrics: Fraser McGill

Well I'm living here in California
I was working on the Amtrak line
I was digging her green lipstick and her turquoise cowby boots
With a copy of the New York Times
 
I said let me in or let me go
And it always makes me wonder
My little friend from New York City

Because I'm the only one who sees it
Because I'm the only one who believes it
Because I'm the only one who sees it now

She came all the way from Coney Island
Now she's living up in Alamo Square
With her six cats and her French Poodle called Ramona
She was heading to the Haight Street Fair
 
I said let me in or let me go
It always makes me wonder
My little friend from New York City

Because I'm the only one who sees it
Because I'm the only one who believes it
Because I'm the only one who sees it now

We went dancing down at the Edinburgh Castle
Then we walked across the Golden Gate
On her left hand the tattoo it said "Never Never Land"
On her right hand it said "Heaven Can Wait"

I said let me in or let me go
It always makes me wonder
My little friend from New York City

Because I'm the only one who sees it
Because I'm the only one who believes it
Because I'm the only one who sees it now

Then one rainy day she told me she was leaving
She said she had the West Coast blues
She said the hot dogs weren't as good as Nathan's
And people here didn't wipe the crap off their shoes

I said let me in or let me go
It always makes me wonder
Goodby my little New York friend
 
Because I'm the only one who sees it
Because I'm the only one who believes it
Because I'm the only one who sees it now
Who sees it now
