"All I have is stupid memories
And I cherish them more than anything in the fuckin’ world"

lyrics

This is a tough weekend for me, my friend
Cos I go home
I don’t know why
Doesn’t bother me
But it does bother me
Gotta go to the cemetery
Gotta drive around the neighborhood
See all my old haunts
You realize how old you are
You realize life moved on
All you have is your fuckin' memories you know
All I have is stupid memories
And I cherish them more than anything in the fuckin’ world
All I have is stupid memories
And I cherish them more than anything in the fuckin’ world
When I drive on 76th street
And I’m parked at that light
I’m gonna make a left at the ___ light at 77th to go to
And I look over my right shoulder
I don’t see Hashways there
It just does something to me
You know?
It just fuckin’ does something to me
I don’t break down
I don’t need to go to a therapist
But it just
It kicks you in the stomach
It kicks your youth in the stomach
It kicks
Who you were as a child
In the stomach
I didn’t know anything as a kid
I just always thought Hashways would be there
You know what I’m saying?
We all have our own Hashways
We all have memories of that fuckin' childhood deli
Or pizza place
Or Chinese place
Or whatever the fuck, that you were in there
You tortured the people
They gave you credit
One day you swallowed a fuckin' roach in there by mistake
And they didn’t tell nobody
And they have you free food for the rest of your life
I’ll say that name for the rest of my life
Hashways
You know?
All I have is stupid memories
And I cherish them more than anything in the fuckin’ world
All I have is stupid memories
And I cherish them more than anything in the fuckin’ world

But tomorrow I get to go home
I’ll drive by at night
And
I’ll just shake my head
You know
I always go down by my mother’s bar
And make a left
And I see what that’s like now
And that’s completely different
Then I hook a left on New York Avenue
I shoot all the way up to like fuckin'
48th, and I cut over to fuckin’ Hudson Avenue
I go all the way to 60th and I make a fuckin left down
And I see what it looks like at night
Then I make a fuckin right up…
I hit the same route every time, dog

I dunno
And that’s it
I don’t get out
I don’t breathe the air
I just take that one ride to see
What happened
To kick me in the stomach
Just to
Shoot whatever dreams I had down
That I would ever go back to Jersey and it’s gonna be the same
All I have is stupid memories
And I cherish them more than anything in the fuckin’ world
All I have is stupid memories
And I cherish them more than anything in the fuckin’ world
All I have is stupid memories
And I cherish them more than anything in the fuckin’ world
All I have is stupid memories
And I cherish them more than anything in the fuckin’ world
I went down there
When I was with my daughter last year
I took her down there
I walked around with them
I took them to the fuckin’ park I played at
I had a great time with them
I didn’t break down physically, mentally or nothin’
I thought I would Lee.
See right now sometimes I think
Oh my god this is gonna be hard on me
It ain’t shit
It ain’t shit I breeze right fuckin' through it
I thought when I would walk into the high school a few years ago I would have a nervous breakdown
None of that shit happened
None of that shit happened
I don’t now how I dealt with it, Lee
Over the years doing all that coke and sitting there alone like a fuckin’ loser
And writing about my past
All of that shit fuckin’ cleared the air in my mind
I don’t know how
I don’t know how
When I walk on the streets a little bit sometimes
I go wow, I remember walking on this street after I did this
Or I remember walking on this street after I did that
30 years ago
I was getting chased in that fuckin’ parking lot
Chased!
Chased!
Chased.
All I have is stupid memories
And I cherish them more than anything in the fuckin’ world
All I have is stupid memories
And I cherish them more than anything in the fuckin’ world
All I have is stupid memories
And I cherish them more than anything in the fuckin’ world
All I have is stupid memories
And I cherish them more than anything in the fuckin’ world
Now I pull up to my house
You know
I look at the baby
I look at my wife
And I go
What the fuck happened
