NYC Lyrics - Interpol



Review The Song (9)


I had seven faces
Thought I knew which one to wear
But I'm sick of spending these lonely nights
Training myself not to care
The subway is a porno
The pavements they are a mess
I know you've supported me for a long time
Somehow I'm not impressed
But

[Chorus]

New York cares
(Got to be some more change in my life)

The subway she is a porno
The pavements they are a mess
I know you've supported me for a long time
Somehow I'm not impressed

It's up to me now, turn on the bright lights

i agree with everyones opinion ....i think he feels like he had no contol of himself and what was about to happen ....like at the end he says up to me now...turn on the bright lights....
almost like he was depressed living in his confusing dark world and at the end decides to turn on the lights ....

New York Cares! | Reviewer: myangeldust | 7/8/11

I think it means all that you've read about. You live in the City and become apathetic because that's the way one believes the system is. Compound it with unfulfilled dreams and you go to a dark place. But living in the City is the dream in itself. You're a part of this thing that exists no where else. Sure there are other cities, but they're not The City. Turn on the bright lights!

I don't know about Interpol but being someone that has lived in NYC a long time, whose dreams aren't quite fulfilled. This song makes perfect sense. It's a love affair with a city, she's beautiful and exotic but isn't as faithful as you want her be.

I think he's singing about being stuck in a dark mood for a while , and (desperatly) trying to get out of it.
He's (finnaly) taking, after blaming other factors, responsibility for his moodswings, life, future.
('It's up to me now to turn on the bright lights')
I hear the strugle in the song and the redemption in the end in the heavy-reverb guitars.

New york cares... | Reviewer: bwolf192@gmail.com | 2/1/08

Love this song. It's magnificent, beautiful and very easy to play on guitar at that (Fmaj and C chords only). It's about the city of new york and is the perfect song for walking down the sidewalks of it, alone, at night. "The subway she is a porno, the sidewalks they are a mess...new york cares."
Beautiful.

simply great | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/18/07

What can one say about this song? It is just another classic dreamy Interpol song. Who cares what it means, it sounds great....

coming to terms with dreams and the fact of creating them with or without the love(my dear love) of nyc.
Missing you so much New York.

a slow walk down the bowery in the frost of winter at the end of a long afternoon of drinking, trying to out-walk the spector of " what am I and where the fuck am I headed. "
