The song is a delineation of life in New York, and what feels like to live there. The song contains a gentler tone in contrast with whatever is left of their songs and is a brilliant and renowned gathering song. The singer asks for New York City to go simple on him, as he is losing his adored one to an alternate individual. He even apologizes to the city by letting it know that regardless of them having a guarantee, he never thought he could turn that egotistical. He continues supposing he will see her face in the group, however she is never there, and actually, she will never be there.
