Simon & Garfunkel - A Heart In New York Lyrics




New York, to that tall skyline I come, flyin' in from London to your door
New York, lookin' down on Central Park
Where they say you should not wander after dark

New York, like a scene from all those movies
But you're real enough to me, but there's a heart
A heart that lives in New York

A heart in New York, a rose on the street
I write my song to that city heartbeat
A heart in New York, love in her eye, an open door at a friend for the night

New York, you got money on your mind
And my words won't make a dime's worth a difference, so here's to you New York

    Maria Eugenia Fernandez

    @Alexis mega pro gamer 97 wonderful!

  10. mason miller

    I saw Simon and Garfunkel at Jazzfest in 2009 -- Garfunkel told the crowd this was the only complete song he had ever written totally by himself.

  11. streetsmart73

    Just fantastic and brilliant

  12. misanke misanke

    **Tanks**I'LOVE... IT... THE BEST...🌹🌹🌹

  13. KAUSHIK GANGULI

    His voice is like a choirboy.....what incredible depth! Cant get enough of the song. The album itself was dedicated partly to his late girlfriend Laurie Bird.

  14. Alexis mega pro gamer 97

    I love you, deeply!!!

  15. Shubho Roy

    This song, the performance, encapsulates everything I feel about nyc. Life outside nyc feels like life in exile :/. (Thanks Artie).

  16. Phill Wainewright

    Listen, kids ... no auto-tune. Art just opens his gob and out comes ... *perfection*

  17. Adal Carani

    Bellissima

  18. Pedy1968

    Magical! ❤️

  19. Tonecho QT

    Mi canción favorita de S & G.

  20. JohnBoehners

    I wish these guys would go on tour one last time AND that tickets were affordable. I grew up on these tunes & love every one of them!

  21. oberon79

    This has 670k views in 3 years, while some kids post nonsense and get millions of views in a day, let that sink in....

  22. Wolff Street

    I was there the night before my 19th Birthday 🎂 day, I’m 58 now...visiting from Long Island

  23. Setsuko Gazineu

    Beautifull

  26. Mike

    I'm 63 yrs old. I'm sitting here just wanting to hear one particular Simon & Garfunkle song (American Tune) ... over an hour later I'm still sitting here, now with a tear running down my cheek. So, so, so much water under the bridge since I first heard the music of these fabulous artists. To those of more recent generations, please cherish these sounds and keep them alive, for the sake of the art.

    Alexandra S.

    We will ❤

  27. JohnBoehners

    *Even thought our nation was dealing with "Tricky Dick Nixon" & the draft during the time this tune was popular, America seemed like a better, kinder, less complicated & more honest as a nation. God willing, America will survive the "Trump Years", and we can get back to a better - more accepting nation.... Great music. Great memories.*

  28. Ella Taylor

    The sad thing is with so many crap distractions our children will never loose them selves in the beauty of such music. Too many other hideous games . Oh I cry for there lose.

  29. Sports Geek

    This guys voice is something else.Very very underrated

  30. Islande Le modèle

    Et si tout etait beau comme cette chanson ?......

  31. Ryan Golombecki

  38. Adrian Serra

    Paul makes beautiful songs and Art turns them in extremely sweet melodies , what a couple!

    Adam T

    I think Art Garfunkel wrote the lyrics on this song.

    SoberbioNumeroUno

    written by Lyle/Gallagher from Scotland

  39. Mary.Catherine

    This song was in America’s next top model and that’s how I found it 😂😂

  40. Josie Blanco

    Eu te amo Garfunkel...saudades dessas músicas maravilhosas

  44. Alex Palmeira dos Santos

    Muito Linda essa música

  45. denny smith

    Garfunkle was my favourite... Simon's book convinced me I was'nt wrong in choice... pity they cld'nt have put aside petty stuff & just worked together... Ego can be an awful thing... Garfunkle had ethereal voice... almost angelic.... together .... WOW!

  46. Greg Ashton

    The song shows me the hypocrisy of New York City now you got big bird running it which makes it even worse can you find a better person to run New York City what the hell ever happened in New York after Giuliani was there it went to hell

  47. Marina Assanti

    Sempre stupenda!!!!

  48. MrThermostatic

    I just read the Paul Simon biography, and it said that Paul insisted Artie wear a hairpiece for the concert and that first he resisted but wound up wearing one. If he is, then I must be a damn good one cause I don't see it.

  49. Jack Taylor

    Which of you 45 numbskulls downvoted this?

  50. Andy Northall

    There was something supernatural about them both that night.

  51. Donna L

    Probably my favorite on the album

  52. Marlene Sullivan

    So Pure So Beautiful.. 💕 (+_+)

  53. Karen Stevens

    Artie’s voice is an angel walking the earth

    Steve

    So very true! Karen, where are you from? Steve in Vermont, USA

    Carolann Cannuli-Denton

    ALL OF US!!

  54. Stephen Bracco

    I went to this concert the week I moved to NYC. Birth of a lifelong New Yorker that night.

    Matthew Cand

    Amazing

    Michael West

    A history in the making my friend

    Stefano Pavone

    @Michael West 19 September 1981 - hard to believe it's been nearly 40 years.

  55. ivan noe

    Amor maior...

  56. Andy Roman

    The song is on Art's 1981 release SCISSORS CUT. He said this was almost the only song in the set was not a Paul Simon one,musically or lyrically.

  57. Sir Neville Cawas Cyrus Bardoliwalla OBE

    So love this song

  58. mesube22

    I own this DVD and everytime he says: Look down on Central Park. "I cry"

  59. ron p

    The lyric should be " an open door an a friend for life"

    Michael McCarville

    You don't know NY !

  60. Cuc Nguyen

    Love so much music of Simon and Garfunkel,Oldies but Goldie’s that me saying

  61. Christopher Emge

    if t here's a better tribute to the Big Apple, I have not heard it and yeah I hear ya Frank

    J Bermingham

    Apple of my Eye - Damien Dempsey. I'm not saying it's better, but worth a listen.

  62. Renee-Marie Krug Krug

    Simon and Garfunkel graduated from Queen's College...Bravo!

    Westwoods

    Nope only Simon did. Garfunkel went to Columbia.

  63. Renee-Marie Krug Krug

    New Yorker here!

  64. John Hughes

    I am so sad listening to this great song - what is happening to the once great USA???

    idol levi

    The USA always were and will be great.

    peacefuljeffrey

    I feel the same way. I am wistful and nostalgic for what NYC used to be. I cannot accept what it is right now.

    Marc Jacobs

    Messed up by politicians....

  65. Casey Muldoon

    Chills.

  66. Francisco Javier Monfort

    Me emociona poder escuchar esta canción en directo, con el propio Art, el próximo 14 de julio en Barcelona !!!

  67. Peter West

    what a great song, and the guitars, mind blowing

  68. Van Nhan Nguyen

    Can't stop looking to his eyes. Its shining !!!

  69. Tracey Banting

    So clever, the way Art sings 'heart' and the background melody picks up the heartbeat! ❤

  70. Tracey Banting

    As I listen to this, I imagine Art and Paul busking on the streets (sidewalks) of London. As a child we had family in North London, so were regular visitors. Perhaps we passed them, put money in their collection box. I do hope so ❤ xxx

    Charles King

    Great song I love Nyc!!😊

  71. Allysson Júnior

  80. Kapil Merchant

    D, the son is at the comp all night. That's the reason I couldn't be with you, I hate it(not being with you). But our love is strong. Won't be broken, will it?

  81. Kapil Merchant

    D, New York doesn't mean anything to me. It's this song about it that i love

  82. Sandra Jollie

  83. Lisa McCarthy-Tamilia

    Sharing the song "New York" that was recorded live in Central Park, New York City, September 19, 1981. Simon & Garfunkel: The Concert In Central Park.   Moving to say the least after 9.11.

  84. Laurylie Norman

    New York, to that tall skyline I come, flyin' in from London to your door
    New York, lookin' down on Central Park
    Where they say you should not wander after dark
    New York, like a scene from all those movies
    But you're real enough to me, but there's a heart
    A heart that lives in New York
    A heart in New York, a rose on the street
    I write my song to that city heartbeat
    A heart in New York, a love in her eye, an open door and a friend for the night
    New York, you got money on your mind
    And my words won't make a dime's worth a difference, so here's to you New York

    Elton John

    Maria Eugenia Fernandez

    Roby Lazarus

    Jefferson Westwood Excellent reply...

    Westwoods

    Thank you.

    Michael McCarville

    Who cares ?

    Edgy philosopher

    No... But he said on his book he was a "lover of all beautiful asses, beautiful bodies, boys and girls"

  89. Luca Bianchi MrPianorgan

    Great Song !!!

  90. Joshua Mayne

    A beautiful song that encapsulates the best city in the world. New York City has that little big of magic in it.

    Maria Eugenia Fernandez

    I start crying every time I listen this song!. I cannot forget my beautiful NY.

    peacefuljeffrey

    It’s actually a bit critical of NYC, if you analyze it.

  91. Salete Cembrani

    @Suffer Fools
    You may not believe
    Though the sound is clear I found difficulty to recognise what he was singing
    So I've needed to read the lyrics
