"Manhattan"

You can have Manhattan
I know it’s for the best
I’ll gather up the avenues
And leave them on your doorstep
And I’ll tip toe away
So you won’t have to say
You heard me leave

You can have Manhattan
I know it’s what you...

    After a breakup, she is giving Manhattan to her ex. She leaves quietly and moves somewhere else. The lyrics hint at Los Angeles or somewhere in California.
