“...cause tonight I'm gonna take that ride
across the river to the Jersey side...”
Finding someone real, that’s the goal. Seeing beyond the façade, like the bright lights of New York City, across the shore - for on the other side awaits home, awaits someone with a heart that can feel like home. A Jersey girl, a Massachusetts girl, a Georgia girl, we’re all capable of being that girl for someone, of being something real in a world filled with artificialities.
We grow up thinking about what we deserve to find, what we should get from another. What we need to remember, too, is what we can be for someone, all that we have to give and being worthy of the love we are given. A “jersey girl” is giving and loving. She is worthy of such a love song as this.
