Hackensack

Album: Welcome Interstate Managers (2003)
  • I used to know you when we were young
    You were in all my dreams
    We sat together in period one
    Fridays at 8:15
    Now I see face in the strangest places
    Movies and magazines
    I saw you talkin' to Christopher Walken
    On my TV screen

    BUt I will wait for you
    As long as I need to
    And if you ever get back to Hackensack
    I'll be here for you

    I used to work in a record store
    Now I work for my dad
    Scraping the paint off of hard wood floors
    The hours are pretty bad
    Sometimes I wonder where you are
    Probably in L.A.
    That seems to be where everbody else ends up these days

    But I will wait for you
    As long as I need to
    And if you ever get back to Hackensack
    I'll be here for you

    And I will wait for you
    As long as I need to
    And if you ever get back to Hackensack
    I'll be here for you
    If you ever get back to Hackensack
    I'll be here for you
