upper west – west side stories lyrics

Loading...

you could hate, listen, love or ignore me
but buckle up for my west side story
where do we go from here…

grew up on seven second, moved up to 87th
we rep that city where we saw the smoke on 9/11
just kids in second grade, or maybe third it was
but either way that day we really saw what murder was
you ever heard of us? this city i reside
grew up on fields of gr-ss and gravel down on riverside
that’s where i learned to dream
on top that rock i’d sing
i told me dad one day i’d grow up to become a king!

i said i’m living now, cuz we all die later
hey dad look up one day, you’ll see me on that skyscr-per
see i was 6 years old, when i learned to tie my laces
so i could walk my city’s streets and
see the different faces
made up of every color, mixed in with every race
no matter where i am in life i won’t forget this place
when people grow up fast, the teenage dream is different
cuz kids will tell you that they hear you, but they never listen
i rep that west end

i see that hudson river
that murky water looking perfect
with the stat of liber-tee
that’s nyc, east or west or battery
man that’s where i have to be
just hop up on that 2 or 3

express to soho, man i love that downtown
just like a yo-yo, when i leave i’ll just come back around
these are my stomping grounds, and they will be always
this city made me just exactly what i am today

you could hate, listen, love or ignore me
but buckle up for my west side story
where do we go from here…
it’s where our hearts belong
they’ll always sing this song
where do we go from here… hey, hey

i said i’m from the west
side of this busy city
where people never rest
stay focused on the pretty
lights of the skyline, i tread the high-line
the seconds fly by in the ny, that’s ny-time
i feel the air with every single breath i take
these streets under me with every single step i make
i said for heaven’s sake, just take us back one day
whether in spirit, souls, or dreams make it happen someway

back against the gr-ss we’re staring at the summer night
baby just relax and let this moment come to life
i’m looking straight up from the lawn, i’m gone, and feel the rush
could never see a star but i know this city’s filled with us
i am forever grateful, for all you’ve given me
these endless possibilities and now i’m living free
and when i thought this city had no sympathy
i saw that every day’s a treat and every night’s a symphony

i swear i love this sound, this light, this air, this ground
that’s why i say it proud when people ask of my hometown
no matter where we go from here, or where we may reside
just know that all our stories started on the west side!

you could hate, listen, love or ignore me
but buckle up for my west side story
where do we go from here…
it’s where our hearts belong
they’ll always sing this song
where do we go from here… hey, hey
