Ever Since New York Lyrics

Tell me something, tell me something
You don’t know nothing, just pretend you do
I need something, tell me something new
Choose your words, 'cause there's no antidote
For this curse, oh, what's it waiting for?
Must this hurt you just before...

    It's actually about his stp father dealing with cancer who died recently, it's quite abvious if you listen closely,
    "there's no antidote for this curse" no medicine against cancer
    "i've been praying I never did before" praying that he'll get better even though he's never been that religious
    "almost over, had enough from you" knowing that his time is coling soon
    "there's no water inside this swimming pool" losing hope that he'll win the fight
    Sorry for my english btw

    Its about harrys step father robin having to deal with cancer.
    "tell me something, tell me something"
    wanting to know whats going on with robin
    "i need something, tell me something new"
    he wants to hear an answer besides that robin in fact does have cancer
    "choose your words, cause theres no antidote for this curse"
    speak wisely because you never know when your last time speaking will be the last time.
    "must this hurt you, just before you go"
    he doesnt want robin to be in pain
    "tell me something i dont already know"
    he wants to hear new answers, and not hear about the cancer
    "brooklyn saw me, empty at the news"
    he was doing interviews, and he wanted to act like himself, but all he could think of was robin
    "theres no water, inside this swimming pool"
    a reference to feeling empty
    "ive been praying never did before"
    harry was never a religious person, but when he heard about robin having cancer he started to pray more
    "ive been praying, ever since new york"
    it was rumored that harry found out the news while in New York

    Ever Since New York is mainly on Harry’s stepdad Robin Twist. “ Choos your words cause there’s no antidote for this curse. Oh, must this hurt you just before you go. ” refers to when Robin was diagnosed with cancer. Harry had a serious but close relationship with his stepdad for a long time. He was always there for Harry when he was at work or taking time off back home in the UK.

    Obviously about his Stepdads devastating news and him trying to come to terms with it and dealing with it in any way he can, which with Harry is through his music. A wonderful tribute to how his Stepdads illness and prognosis affected him.
