about

Empire State gets all the songs. Time to show some love to its neighbour. (Also I used to live there.)

lyrics

Garden State

I can just remember
The brown house on a hill
From the time I was 2 to the time I was 7 we lived there
At the time I could not know that New York was such a big deal

And that city felt so far
But we loaded up the car
We moved to the Chicago suburbs

When I was just a child
So I don’t know the way
To get back to the Garden State
New Jersey
It is all I know of New York

It’s across the ocean
Someone else’s dream
Now my friends go to visit and they tell me there is more life there
And now as I get older I’m starting to know what they mean

But it’s all so far away
And I don’t know what to say
We moved to the Chicago suburbs

When I was just a child
So I don’t know the way
To get back to the Garden State
New Jersey
It is all I know of New York

So I don’t go back there
But I never left
It’s a part of the past, it’s a memory, may be the future
It’s a part of my being that I never knew that I kept

And although I don’t know how
I am thinking of it now
But we moved to the Chicago suburbs

When I was just a child
So I don’t know the way
To get back to the Garden State
New Jersey
It is all I know of New York
