Once again you have taken us on a ride into the inner sanctum of your mind. The magical spell you have cast is especially haunting. It makes me want to visit Manhattan one day. Your writing style is that of Leonard Cohen and someone else whose name, unfortunately, escapes me for the moment. I love it!
I am so happy to be able to share this song with you. It's about my city - Manhattan. I've lived here all my life and have come to know it intimately - for better or for worse. It is a city of contradictions and of people trying to find their way. It is a city where happiness, tragedy, anger, and love intersect on street corners daily. I tried to capture some of that in this song.
"Manhattan" takes you on a visual journey tied to simple emotion and dreamlike madness. It's caught halfway between reality & the abstract - much like the island of Manhattan itself.
