  • Lyrics: So here it goes, the last song I’ve wrote Only word I hear over and over again Hallelujah My suitcase is packed, got a handful of cash Just enough for the fare of the next passing cab Hallelujah So now I leave for Manhattan On the next train, the next bus, the next plane I will leave for Manhattan Wish you would hold me backYour letter did say, promising days And I believed every word you had, good and bad, no regret Hallelujah I’ve given it all to watch it all fall So they say, “This is life; let it go, let it stay, either way, Hallelujah” So now I leave for Manhattan On the next train, the next bus, the next planeI will leave for Manhattan Wish you would hold me back When it’s cold in the night you’ll reach and I’m not there And you tell yourself to not be scared No, you can not be scared ‘Cause I gave you my heart and you’re letting it go And the only last thing that I want you to know Is I have to leave ‘cause you’re letting me go So now I leave, yes I’ll leaveI leave for Manhattan On the next train, the next bus, the next plane I will leave for Manhattan Wish you would hold me back.
