Author's note: I know not many people like songfics ,but I adore this song at the moment and I'm missing the programme so I thought I'd link the two together and write this. Please tell me what you think, good or bad! Enjoy

New York

The days were long and the nights were cold

The pages turn and the tale unfolds

He left me for another lady

Martha sighed as she scanned over a list of possible candidates for Bloom's position in the Identity unit.

Why did he just up and leave, after making sure she was okay?

She stood so tall and she never slept

There was not one moment he could regret

He left me for another lady

Adile. That annoying woman was partly the reason why she'd had to find a decent replacement for Bloom. Or Brendan Shay, as he obviously preferred to be known.

He took my hand one day and told me he was leaving

Me disbelieving

And I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I had to let him go

It made her frustrated just thinking about him, but she was sure there was something between them, although she would never admit it to anyone. There must have been, or he wouldn't have told everyone where that evil git was keeping her, nevertheless come to find out if she was hurt.

Her name was New York, New York

And she took his heart away, oh my

Her name was New York, New York

She had poisoned his sweet mind

No. That was just his final act for the team, so nobody would suspect his girlfriend's pals were involved. She'd just have to accept he was never coming back, stop pondering over him and get on with her life.

The wolves they howled for my lost soul

I fell down a deep black hole

He left me for another lady

But to tell the truth, her life wasn't the same without him. It had returned to it's boring old self. She missed the spontaneity, the weird hairstyle, even fiercely defending him to the rest of the team when he messed up.

She poured the drinks and she poured the power

A diamond who could talk for hours

He left me for another lady

What a waste of time that was. All that so he could run away, to God knows where with some silly woman.

Now I am on my own

He told me he was leaving and I was pleading

And I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I had to let him go

She sighed again. None of the candidates would do, all young kids who think they're it because they have a degree. She needed someone with experience.

Her name was New York, New York

And she took his heart away, oh my

Her name was New York, New York

She had poisoned his sweet mind

Thinking back, she realised she was just like them. Fresh out of uni with a degree in Psychology, raring to go but still sore from the loss of her dad.

The greatest times

I don't wanna hear it

Your new laughter lines

I don't wanna hear it

Her mum wanted her to do something safe, like Accountancy or Nursing but she chose the Police.

The new found friends she introduced you to

I don't wanna know them, I just wanna be with you

Please don't make me go you New York, New York

They hadn't spoken since.

She took your heart away

Her name was New York, New York

She poisoned your sweet mind

So, who to choose? The small girl with almost black hair? The fast-track smart looking guy?

Her name was New York, New York

She took your heart away

Her name was New York, New York

She poisoned your sweet mind

She poisoned your sweet mind

Nah. She wanted Bloom.
