Wonder Years, The - Hoodie Weather Lyrics




It smells like it should be snowing
And I've been frequenting a diner on Main Street
Where the waitresses are girls that graduated with me
Have problems with oxy and can't recall what I had to drink
No one knows where they're going
They just know they want out of here badly
They're like cigarettes dropped on a highway
They smash and scatter and burn out somewhere else without knowing
I've got my grandmother's veins in the back of my hands
And just a hint of a South Philly accent
I was born here and I'll probably die here
Let's go home

This town has got lies to tell
I'll wait around and hear you out
But I can't keep from digging up these bones forever
At least for now, I'll settle down
I'll try to find some solid ground
I lost my footing trying to get home last winter

The kids in the graduating class
Have got their eyes set west
And California on their lips
But I left some blood there that I'm never getting back
Rocky's in the Deep South
I don't think he's coming back now
It's sinister, but it's how life worked out
I've got my grandmother's veins in the back of my hands
And just a hint of a South Philly accent
I was born here and I'll probably die here
Let's go home

This town has got lies to tell
I'll wait around and hear you out
But I can't keep from digging up these bones forever
At least for now, I'll settle down
I'll try to find some solid ground
I lost my footing trying to get home last winter

Growing up means watching my heroes turn human in front of me
The songs we wrote at eighteen seem shortsighted and naïve
So when the weather breaks, I'll pull my hoodie up over my face
I won't run away, run away
As fucked as this place got, it made me me

This town has got lies to tell
I'll wait around and hear you out
But I can't keep from digging up these bones forever
At least for now, I'll settle down
I'll try to find some solid ground
I lost my footing trying to get home last winter
This town's got lies to tell

Wonder Years, The Hoodie Weather Comments
  1. Michael Laber

    Sad boi pop punk is dead now

  2. Uncle JOE

    i live in Milwaukee and it gets cold and dark during the winter and very depressive. As a kid growing up in Milwaukee and walking home in the snow and with my mom and dad having issues and bullies these just fits omg.

  3. Cauli Kolbe

    I have this big interview tomorrow, been listening to that song thinking about youth and growing up. After sharing my thoughts with those guys for more than 10 years I could be nothing but thankful for their work and also calming my nerves down about the whole situation.

  4. Chris Bridges

    “Growing up means watching my heroes turn human in front of me” fuck me that hit way too close to home

  5. _ SCVNGR _

    Only PA can produce this song. I would know..fuuck.

  6. Say It

    It smells like it should be snowing
    And I've been frequenting a diner on Main Street
    Where the waitresses are girls that graduated with me
    Have problems with oxy and can't recall what I had to drink

    No one knows where they're going
    They just know they want out of here badly
    Like cigarettes dropped on a highway
    They smash and scatter and and burn out
    Somewhere else without knowing

    I've got my grandmother's veins in the back of my hands
    And just a hint of a South Philly accent
    I was born here (I'll probably die here)
    Let's go home

    This town's got lies to tell
    I'll wait around to hear you out
    But I can't keep from digging up these bones forever
    At least for now, I'll settle down
    I'll try to find some solid ground
    I lost my footing trying to get home last winter

    The kids in the graduating class
    Have got their eyes set west and California on their lips
    But I left some blood there that I'm never getting back
    Rocky's in the Deep South, I don't think he's coming back now
    It's sinister,, but it's how life worked out

    I've got my grandmother's veins in the back of my hands
    And just a hint of a South Philly accent
    I was born here (I'll probably die here)
    Let's go home

    This town's got lies to tell
    I'll wait around to hear you out
    But I can't keep from digging up these bones forever
    At least for now, I'll settle down
    I'll try to find some solid ground
    I lost my footing trying to get home last winter

    Growing up means watching my heroes turn human in front of me
    The songs we wrote at eighteen seem shortsighted and naive
    So when the weather breaks, I'll pull my hoodie up over my face
    I won't run away, run away
    'Cause as fucked as this place got, it made me me

    This town's got lies to tell
    I'll wait around to hear you out
    But I can't keep from digging up these bones forever
    At least for now, I'll settle down
    I'll try to find some solid ground
    I lost my footing trying to get home last winter
    This town's got lies to tell

  7. Wes Papes

    Something keeps me coming back to this track. Is is the lyrics that hit hard and deep? Maybe. Could it be the instrumentation? Perhaps. Honestly, it's the feeling this song gives off. No matter where I am, or who I'm with, this reminds me of home.

  8. D Nelson

    The first time I heard this song I was hooked on this band. I've seen them dozens of times since. Listened to all of their albums front to back, hundreds of times.

    But something always keeps me coming back to this song.

  21. Digital Screams

    I'm really feeling this. I'll be graduating high school soon and I keep telling my parents I want to live in California, on the other side of America far far away from family. I do want to leave this state! But then again I don't know any other place like the one I live in. This state has people and places I know. Still want to leave though! Eh, I'll figure it out when I'm older.

    Digital Screams

  55. Aleesha Simpson

    Wow, I seriously never thought I would find a Doctor Who reference in the commnent section of one of The Wonder Years' songs. :D

  56. Michael Breeden

    I'm from a tight knit suburb in northern Los Angeles. So many Wonder Years songs remind me of home, where I came from, and who I am because of that. It's been great to, what I call, grow up with the Wonder Years. There have been times when I've hated home and wanted to escape, and now that I have I've learned how much home had to offer. This album gives me the chills every time through. This song and summers in PA make me proud of the place I call home.

  57. Subhi Marciano

    This song makes me miss my friends who all left to college :(

  58. DT Psycho
