Rilo Kiley I love LA Lyrics

Last updated: 09/10/2008 11:00:00 AM

Let it be printed
Let it be known
I'm leaving you
I'm going home

And all you can do is just
Watch me go

I've put you down
Talked you up
Defended your honor
Then packed it in and picked it up

And all you can do is just
Watch me go

From the Eastern seaboard
The land-locked Midwest
The Keys, the Alps, the Black Hills
and Budapest

With my heart in a sling, tail between my legs a swingin'
I'm sorry for leavin'

But when the palm trees bow their heads
No matter how cruel I've been
LA, you always let me back in

And you can bury me when my body breaks
In the earth that created me
In the Golden State
By my mama and her brother
And their mama too

Cause I had a dream I was carried on backs
Of a thousand green birds
And they carried me to a place without words
And there was nothin'
But there was everything

But when the palm trees bow their heads
No matter how wrong I've been
LA, you always let me back in

But when the palm trees bow their heads
No matter how cruel I've been
LA, you always let me back in

A love song for California. | Reviewer: michael gressett | 10/26/2005

I Love LA says it all for people who love California. Jenny Lewis' image of the Golden State as a mother to many will hit home. Lewis is one of the premier vocalists of our time. The song seems to be about her own experience of California, but its lyrics will appeal to the rest of us. After Rilo Kiley, not only will their music remind me of California, but California will remind me of Rilo Kiley. Jenny, if you ever read this, please send me an email. Michael Gressett.
