hackensack lyrics – fountains of wayne

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 your 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
scr*ping 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 everybody 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
