My Hometown

Jersey City is where I was born
I woke up to see many a dawns

It’s not a bad city, it was a place to give
But there were many times it didn’t forgive

The streets were tough, the winter’s cold
It’s a city you can embrace, but one you can never hold

The streets will own and rule you
There’s not too much one can do

After some years you’ll be ready to leave
It will no longer have the things you need

That’s when you know the time has come
Because you and the city are no longer one

Now people grow up there and decide to stay
But so many many more just go a different way
