California

Lorde

Once upon a time in Hollywood
When Carol called my name
I stood up, the room exploded, and I
Knew: That’s it, I'll never be the same
That's when the doors swung open
And a voice said: We're glad you came

Now I've spent thousands on you, darling
All the hotels and the jets
And I'd pay it all again
To have your golden body back in my bed
But I don't miss the poison arrows
Aimed directly at my head

Goodbye to all the bottles, all the models
Back to the clouds
In the skies in a whole new way

Don't want that California love
Don't want that California love
Don't want that California love

Oh, once upon a time the Canyon Store
Was where my world began
All that mystery and beauty gleaned
From desert flowers and gifted children

But it got hard to grow up
With your cool hand around my neck
Now in my hometown, sunbathing
My girlfriends and my baby
But every time I smell tequila
God, it goes up in my mind again

Goodbye to all the bottles, all the models
Back to the kids in the lines
For the new Supreme

Don't want that California love
Don't want that California love
Don't want that California love

Don't want that California love
Don't want that California love
Don't want that California love

Hmm, it's just a dream
Hmm, it's just a dream
Hmm, Said, it's just a dream
Hmm, I wanna wake up, I wanna wake up
