I hesitate to choose a song for song of the week that isn’t even out yet. But, PJ and I are spending the rest of week in New York City, so this song is just too good to pass up:

I have a weakness for British singers, and I have a feeling that I’m going to really like Paloma Faith.I love how this song sounds, and I keep expecting New York to steal my man too!

The video is great — I love the chorus part! I’ve asked a friend who will be spending two weeks in England to see if he can pick up the CD for me, since it’s not out here in the U.S. yet. How can anyone resist an album called Do You Want the Truth or Something Beautiful?

In the meantime, PJ and I will be in New York until Saturday. We’ll be seeing South Pacific and a few other shows. We’re also planning another visit to the Tenement Museum and the Metropolitan Museum. And, as always, we’ll probably eat incredibly well! I’ll blog all about it when we get back.

Here are the lyrics:

The days were long and the nights so cold
The pages turn and the tale unfolds
He left me for another lady
She stood so tall and she never slept
There was not one moment he could regret
He left me for another lady

He took my hand one day and told me
He was leaving
Me disbelieving
And I I I I I I I I
Had to let him go

And it was New York, New York
And she took his heart away oh my
And it was New York, New York
She had poisoned his sweet mind

The wolves they howled for my lost soul
I fell down a deep black hole
He left me for another lady
She poured the drinks and she poured the power
Diamond girl who could talk for hours
He left me for another lady

Now I am on my own
He told me he was leaving
And I was pleading
And I I I I I I I I
Had to let him go

And it was New York, New York
And she took his heart away oh my
And it was New York, New York
She had poisoned his sweet mind

The greatest times
I don’t want to hear it
Your new laughter lines
I don’t want to hear it
The new found friends she introduced you to
I don’t wanna know them I just want to be with you
Please don’t make me go to

New York, New York
And she took your heart away oh my
And it was New York, New York
She poisoned your sweet mind
