Intro -x6- G D C

G                 D                 C
Walking through a crowd the village is a glow
G               D         C
Kaleidoscope of loud heartbeats under coats
G         D           C
Everybody here wanted something more
G               D               C   
Searching for a sound we hadn't heard before


             G              D    C 
And it said: Welcome to New York,  it's been waiting for you
G              D             C 
Welcome to New York, welcome to New York
G              D    C
Welcome to New York,  it's been waiting for you
G              D             C
Welcome to New York, welcome to New York


G               D
It's a new soundtrack
                    C 
I can dance to this beat, beat
       Em
Forevermore
                  D
The lights are so bright
                     C 
But they never blind me, me


G              D    C
Welcome to New York, it's been waiting for you  
G              D             C
Welcome to New York, welcome to New York

Interlude: G

     G                    D        C
When we first dropped our bags on apartment floors
G               D                C
Took our broken hearts, put them in a drawer
G         D                C
Everybody here was someone else before
            G                       
And you can want who you want 
D                 C
boys and boys and girls and girls


G              D    C
Welcome to New York,  it's been waiting for you
G              D             C
Welcome to New York, welcome to New York
G              D    C
Welcome to New York

It's been waiting for you
G              D             C
Welcome to New York, welcome to New York


G               D
It's a new soundtrack
                    C 
I can dance to this beat, beat 
       Em
Forevermore
                  D
The lights are so bright
                     C 
But they never blind me, me


G              D    C
Welcome to New York,  it's been waiting for you
G              D             C
Welcome to New York, welcome to New York


Em       D         C 
Like any great love, it keeps you guessing
Em       D        C 
Like any real love, it's ever changing
Em       D        C 
Like any true love, it drives you crazy
G                D              
But you know you wouldn't change 
C                 C 
Anything anything any-thing


G              D    C
Welcome to New York,  it's been waiting for you
G              D             C
Welcome to New York, welcome to New York
G              D    C
Welcome to New York,  it's been waiting for you
G              D             C
Welcome to New York, welcome to New York


G               D
It's a new soundtrack
                    G 
I can dance to this beat, beat 
    D             C
The lights are so bright
                     G                   D
But they never blind me, -welcome to New York-
         C                                 G              D
New soundtrack, it's been waiting for you -welcome to New York-
                  C                           G
The lights are so bright but they never blind me


               D         
Welcome to New York 
   C                    G
So bright they never blind me 
                                    G 
Welcome to New York, welcome to New York
