    Lyrics:
    ghosts of manhattan
    grove for the planters
    karma and towers
    pulling our hours

    it's been many years, but I still know your face
    the rest is a fading image, cropped and pixelated

    eyes glued to the tv screen,
    watched the news til I turned green

    doesn't matter how you cut it, what's done is did,
    even if you can't see it now

    ghosts of manhattan
    grove for the planters
    karma and towers
    pulling our hours
    pushing up flowers

    I tried to call home, but the recordings say
    all the circuits are busy now
    so I lay my face into my hands.

    something still is alive in me
    and I wish you were there to see
    all my accomplishments and all the things I know
    I wish you were here to watch me grow..

    Ghosts of Manhattan
    grove for the planters
    karma and towers
    still not giving answers.

    one day kiddo, the sun will stop your pain
    grab an umbrella cause it's going to rain
    write me your thoughts, even if I'm not there
    even nothing is something when the eastwind blows through your hair

    year of the ghost
    grave for the planters
    bombs in the desert
    that man was a cancer..

    Recording of Jesse Cohen singing his rendition of Leonard Cohen's classic song "Hallelujah" at the 7th Ave G/F station in Park Slope, Brooklyn, on October 9th, 2012.

    Lyrics:

    well I heard there was a secret chord
    david played, and it pleased the lord
    but you don't really care for music, do you?
    well it goes like this
    the fourth, the fifth
    the minor fall, and the major lift
    the baffled king composing Hallelujah

    hallelujah, hallelujah
    hallelujah,hallelujah

    well you saw her bathing on the roof
    your faith was strong but you needed proof
    her beauty in the moonlight,
    overthrew you

    Well, she tied you to her kitchen chair.
    she tied you to a kitchen chair
    she broke your throne, and she cut your hair
    and from your lips she drew a hallelujah

    hallelujah, hallelujah
    hallelujah, hallelujah

    Recording of Jesse Cohen singing "Nobody Knows Your Name" at the 7th Ave G/F station in Park Slope, Brooklyn, on October 9th, 2012.

    Lyrics:
    I came alone
    to a city not my own
    and it's been a real long time
    since I phoned home

    I live in new york city
    where the streets show no pity
    the the word on the street
    sings when in rome, when in rome

    I lived alone
    from my city monotone
    where the same old conversation
    seemed to drone

    oh what a pity
    about that boy from OK city
    who left his mama waiting
    by the phone, by the phone

    Towers like magnets
    taxi cabs and trains
    subways cars and taco trucks
    nobody knows your name
    from BK to the bronx
    still no one knows your name

    like old woody
    seems the heartland loves to hear
    certain kind of kid who longs to build

    And I form the stories from the books upon his shelf
    been by old way farers like himself
    like himself

    tenements and projects
    bedbugs and vagabonds
    hipsters and movie stars
    mixing toe to toe with bums
    dancing in the moonlight
    with all us varied bums

    and I left not to a city now my own
    and it's been a real long time
    since I phoned home

    I live in new york city
    where the streets show no pity
    the the word on the street
    sings when in rome, when in rome
    when in rome

    Recording of Jesse Cohen singing "Heartbroke" at the 7th Ave G/F station in Park Slope, Brooklyn, on October 9th, 2012.

    Lyrics:

    daisy in rain
    you know raising why
    I don't know for you
    though its a name
    where you know
    where eyes feed

    why have you come
    and why did you go
    here I wait for you
    and I wait for you
    and again
    again

    wow, my heart feel broke
    wow, my god, my heart
    feels broken
    broken in two

    your silent whisper
    your quiet face
    fade into heaven
    on that day
