    Imagine if any given moment in your life could be the gateway to a parallel world where you are someone else. Your face, your age, even your species could change, but your name remains the same. Maybe you’re still you, or maybe you’re possessing other beings… after all, you begin to recall their memories as soon as you land somewhere new. You have no control over when these shifts happen, nor do you know where or when you’ll end up next. Would you think you’d gone mad?

    What if, after years of living as other people, you noticed that a girl- the same girl -was traveling along with you?

I wake up in the mornin’
with a cold wind pouring in.
Some people dream of California,
and that’s alright if you like your weather warmer,
but I got me a city.
She stays up at night with me.
Some towns are too laid back
but my city’s an insomniac.
I get so turned about and burned out
and confused and confined, yeah,
but all I know is that I’m
crazy for that New York state of mind.

Good morning, New York.
Good morning, New York.
Good morning, New York.
Good morning… (yeah…)

I get down to the station
where the rats are all racing.
Some swear they’re bound for better places
and that’s alright if your thing is open spaces,
but I love me the city.
She sings along with me.
Some say that sleep is overrated
and I know ’cause I’m overcaffeinated.
She can confuse you and abuse you
but she gets in your head, yeah,
but she’s my empire and if you don’t like the
taste of this Big Apple you can just bite me instead.


When I open up my eyes
all I want to see is her face
and tell her that I love her more
every second I’m awake.

Good morning, New York. x9
Good morning… (yeah…)

Matthew Ebel Seattle, Washington

I call myself a piano rocker, but I’m really just kind of a goofball. I’ve been playing the piano since age 5, discovered electronic music at 12, and made this stuff my career in '99. Since then I’ve played the Grand Ole Opry, been quoted in Rolling Stone, and made a name for myself in new media. I’ve been playing piano rock full-time since 2007 and since then I’ve never looked back. ... more
