West Side Stories
by Upper West

You could hate, listen, love, or ignore me,
but buckle up for my westside stories
Where do we go from here...
1 (Dougie)
Grew up on seven second, moved up to 87
We rep that city where we saw the smoke on 911
Just kids in second grade, or maybe third it was
But either way that day we really saw murder was
You haven't heard of us? This city I reside
Grew up on fields of grass and gravel down on riverside
That's where I learned to dream, on top that rock I'd sing
I told my dad one day that I'd grow up to be 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 skyscraper
See I was 6 years old, I learned to tie my laces
So I could walk my citys 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
Where people grow up fast, this 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 lookin perfect with the stat of liber-Tee,
That's the 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 yoyo, when I leave I'll just come back around
These are my stompin grounds, and they will be always
This city made me just exactly what I am today

(JFink)
You could hate, listen, love, or ignore me, but buckle up for my westside stories
Where do we go from here... Its where our hearts belong
They'll always sing this song
Where do we go from here... hey hey

2 (Dougie)
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 highline, the seconds fly by in theny, that's NY time
I feel it in the air with every single breath I take
These streets are under me with every single step I make
I said for heavens sake, just take us back one day
Whether in spirit, souls, or dreams, make it happen some way
Back against the grass we're staring at the summer night
Baby just relax and let this moment come to life
I'm lookin straight up from the lawn, I'm gone, and feel the rush
Could never see a star but I know this citys filled with us
I am forever grateful, for all you've given me
These Endless possibilities so now I'm livin free
And even when I thought this city had no sympathy
I saw that every days a treat and every nights a symphony
I swear I love this sound, these lights 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!

(JFink)
You could hate, listen, love, or ignore me, but buckle up for my westside stories
Where do we go from here... Its where our hearts belong
They'll always sing this song
Where do we go from here... hey hey
