I'm inspired!


I'm very inspired by this song. First I've heard this song its in the opening of Sex and The City 2, and I get caught with it during Aina+Tracy's birthday celebration at Pak Li, which I've heard it for the second time. So I've used them as my recent background music that I've embedded at the base of my blog so that we could sing together using this lyric. Mesmerizing!


Empire State of Mind (Part II) Broken Down Lyrics Alicia Keys

Oooh oooh, New York (2x)


Grew up in a town,

That is famous as a place of movie scenes

Noise is always loud

There are sirenes all around

And the streets are mean

If I could make it here

I could make it anywhere

That's what they say

Seeing my face in lights

Or my name in marquees found down Broadway

Even if it ain't all it seems

I got a pocketful of dreams

Baby, I'm from


Chorus

New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of

There's nothing you can't do

Now you're in New York

These streets will make you feel brand new

Big lights will inspire you

Hear it for New York, New York, New York


On the avenue, there ain't never a curfew

Ladies work so hard

Such a melting pot on the corner selling rock

Preachers pray to God

Hail a gypsy cab

Takes me down from Harlem to the Brooklyn Bridge

Someone sleeps tonight with a hunger
For more than from an empty fridge

I'm going to make it by any means

I got a pocketful of dreams

Baby, I'm from


Chorus

New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of

There's nothing you can't do

Now you're in New York

These streets will make you feel brand new

Big lights will inspire you

Hear it for New York, New York, New York


Chorus

One hand in the air for the big city

Street lights, big dreams, all looking pretty

No place in the world that can compared

Put your lighters in the air

Everybody say yeah, yeah yeaah


Chorus

New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of

There's nothing you can't do

Now you're in New York

These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you

Hear it for New York
And this is the original version of it, which are sung by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys (the rap version). It's nice but I like the previous better.



Inspiring rite? ; )
