UPDATE 2/23/19: @terrianndriggs1 came over and laid down a brilliant vocal on this last night. She also trimmed up the lyrics on the bridge. This is definitely more of what I had in mind when I wrote it!
I love Lana Del Rey and I wanted to make a track inspired by her. I think musically I did that. The vocals are another story. I need a female to sing this to make it proper.
I wrote it from the perspective a daughter talking on the phone to her mother.
I really like this song. This is one I'll go back to after FAWM to fix up. The lyrics and melodies can be a lot better. But I wanted to get this out and move on to something else.
You said, you would give me time
And that, I could go and find
Myself, and a place out west
But now, all I hear are threats
I don’t wanna go back to the east coast
There is nothing for me there is no hope
This is where I can become immortal
I just wanna stay in California
Here now, I can see the stars
Today, I can play my cards
You don’t, understand my dream
I’m close, to this big machine
Are you amazed that I found courage
I found a way to ignore your curses
It is hard, it is risky
I won't give up, I love this city
