Santa Monica Lyrics - Everclear

Review The Song (5)

I am still living with your ghost
Lonely and dreaming of the west coast
I don't want to be your downtime
I don't want to be your stupid game

With my big black boots and an old suitcase
I do believe I'll find myself a new place
I don't want to be the bad guy
I don't want to do your sleepwalk dance anymore
I just want to see some palm trees
I will try and shake away this disease

We can live beside the ocean
Leave the fire behind
Swim out past the breakers
Watch the world die

I am still dreaming of your face
Hungry and hollow for all the things you took away

I don't want to be your good time
I don't want to be your fall-back crutch anymore

I'll walk right out into a brand new day
Insane and rising in my own weird way
I don't want to be the bad guy

I don't want to do your sleepwalk dance anymore
I just want to feel some sunshine
I just want to find some place to be alone

We can live beside the ocean
Leave the fire behind
Swim out past the breakers
Watch the world die

Takes a few listens. | Reviewer: Great Guy | 12/5/11

BEFORE YOU READ: You must read the whole thing to understand that I do think this song is amazing.

This was before I was born, so sadly, I never got to hear this song when it was popular. A few months ago, I heard Father of Mine on the radio (lol thanks 92.9), and got into Everclear. I was shocked to hear that this song was their most popular. I listened to it, and I thought it was mellow cheesy mediocre crap on a stick. I was thinking, Father of Mine is so great and deep and all that, but this is cheese.

A month ago, I heard it on the radio. I realized that this song is so amazing. I listened to it afterwards, and thought it was mellow crap again, until these lines:
"I am still dreaming of your... FACE!
Hungry and hollow for all the things you took away!"
After that point, I don't know what Art does, but with his voice, he brings this song to be one of the best songs of the 90's.

Really worth a listen.
Amazing after 1:20 in.

Blast from the past | Reviewer: mike | 4/1/10

heard this song on the radio today after not having heard it since the mid-90's. One of my favorite songs of that ear. I live in San Francisco and we have a new radio station that plays a lot of the 90's "Alternative" rock, which I love.

Rocks the eff out | Reviewer: Tim | 5/5/09

This song rocks the fuck out. I am happy that the dude who posted before me, who got hurt in Iraq, can listen to this song and find peace. I think that is what music is all about: finding peace with yourself. Thank you sir, for putting your life on the line for all us here back home, and I hope one day you too can swim out past the breakers and watch the world die.

Memories | Reviewer: will | 4/23/09

My buddy and I are going through some medical treatment for injuries we sustained in Fallujah Iraq an dwe heard the song come on the radio. It is an older song but one of my favorites because my injuries prevent me from surfing anymore, but that is exactly what I used to do when things got crapy before my injury, sometimes I would just go out to the blow hole in my town and swim out waiting for for my set and nothing else mattered. I left everything else behind me. It really took me back a few years. I love to hear the accoustic version. sweet-

love it/her | Reviewer: jesse | 12/10/08

Thus, to me, is one of the greatest songs ever. I love and I can't believe I'm the 1st reviewer. Here's why. I've been best friends with this girl for a year. And I've seen.her throug family friends since we were 6 and now 17 and we've been bestfriends for almost a year and she wants me. I really like her, but I can't. Too much is ahead. This song helps me. On another note she use to always tell me her boyfriends and I'm not a fall back plan.
