There was a time when I could say it right to you
that I was never going to leave this place
but now its "I was wrong"
and "I don't wanna fucking talk about it"
cause it feels like things have changed
Yeah well I could talk, talk, talk
and say I'm wrong, wrong, wrong
but I feel I'm in a place I've never known
and it feels like there's something wrong,
something wrong, something wrong
and I know that I don't wanna know...
I'm never going back again
there was a time when I would say I must be crazy
that I would say this place is looking strange
but now its "I'm kinda lost" and "I just don't remember"
because things never stay the same...yeah, well I could talk, talk...

    General CommentThis song isn't about jersey persay....vinny, the drummer, writes all the songs for ltj and was born in jersey, this song is basically about how as you grow up and mature everything and everyone around you that you once knew and loved is slowly changing and things are completely different then they used to be. Its basically how all kids feel eventually....imo this is one of the best LTJ ever, and my personal fav

    General CommentHaha, I'm from New Jersey. I love it, but it tends to get a really bad rep as trashy. I admit it's got it's bad areas (really south Jersey is hick and really north Jersey is all trashy), but there are a lot of nice parts. I don't really think it's about not wanting to return to NJ because it's NJ, but rather because there's a reason. I think it's about a girl there, that he used to be happy but now all they do is argue- "well I could talk, talk, talk, you'd say I'm wrong, wrong, wrong". And I don't think he wants to go back to that.

    General CommentI'm from NJ but go to college in Ohio. I had a GF back home Freshman year and we split it off and once that was over I really felt I had no reason to go back home. Sure I wanted to go back to see my family, but all of my friends are out in OH.
    I've lost whatever few connections I have had to my hometown, and feel no real reason to go back there.

    General CommentThis song isn't exactly about New Jersey, although I completely would understand, seeing as how I think Jersey is complete and utter shit. Vinnie grew up in New Jersey, and I'm sure he loved it , but as all thigns chnage, when he would go back to visit, it was probably totally different and wasn't the hometown he remembered. Hence, he has no hometown now and doesn't want to go back. I can relate i guess, seeing as how I live in Wilkes-Barre which I use to love, but with the HUGE influx of dumb ass gangs and shitloads of drugs and crime , I can't even walk down my street anymore. It's completely ridiculous and doesn't feel like where I grew up, but I only have a few more months until I can leave.
