"Hackensack" as written by and Monk Thelonious Thelonious Monk....
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 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
Scraping 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

    General CommentIt's about growing up with someone and never forgetting them. It's basically saying, if you ever need me, I'll be here for you.

    General CommentThis song is saying that whenever you get back to your home town I'll be there for you. She probably was the best friend and he moved on to biger and better things and she was stuck in that town. She saying whenever you get back home I'll be waiting.
