Track Name: New York City Sundance
New York City Sundance (Dan Frechette)

It's a New York City sundance.
I was breathing all the air.
It's about time I got the world out of my hair.
The Gods they must be crazy
because I've been sending it to the sun.
This feeling that I'd hoped someday
to become someone.

But you can call me friend
buddy it better feel that way.
I'm young inside
and I'm living no lies
loving something with my faith.

My peace is all that I have.
I'm steering clear of the dark.
I was watching the wheels on fire
while I lit my spark.
Everywhere I was hungry
and everywhere I was free.
I was inside paying homage
to the outsider in me.


I saw this whole world dying as I watched that sundance crying on the field.
It's a New York City sundance.
It's a New York City morning.
It's a New York City sundance.
Watch the wheels slowing down.
