Welcome To New York
Written by Taylor Swift and Ryan Tedder Produced by Ryan Tedder, Taylor Swift, and Noel Zancanella
Walking through a crowd
The village is aglow
Kaleidoscope of loud heartbeats
Everybody here wanted something more
Searching for a sound we hadn’t heard…
i want a word for the almost-home.
that point where the highway’s monotony becomes familiar
that subway stop whose name will always wake you from day’s-end dozing
that first glimpse of the skyline
that you never loved until you left it behind.
what do you call the exit sign you see even in your dreams?
is there a name for the airport terminal you come back to,
i need a word for rounding your corner onto your street,
for seeing your city on the horizon,
for flying homewards down your highway.
give me a word for the boundary
between the world you went to see
and the small one you call your own.
i want a word for the moment you know
you’re almost home.

- *spotlight comes on*
- Jack: No he doesn't need a spotlight. Cut it Jeff
- Alex: NO!
- *spotlight goes out*
- Alex: FUCK!
- Jack: His ego will light him up
