Laufey – California and Me Lyrics

Laufey California and Me Lyrics (feat. Philharmonia Orchestra)

Should’ve figured
That you’d go back to New York
Don’t consider
Me when you run back to her

You don’t have to hide it
I know why you went
Said you needed space
I know better than that

Could’ve fought for
You, but I just let you leave
Hurt too much to consider
You didn’t love me

The mountains of L.A.
Will weep through the night
Driving down Sunset’s a terrible sight

Left me and the ocean for your old flame
Holding back my tears, I couldn’t make you stay
Can’t quit this, so damn wicked
To leave California and me

I imagine you holding her in your arms
Laughing ’bout how I thought that you were the one
I get so anxious and maybe I’m young
The first sign of trouble and I bite my tongue

Left me and the ocean for your old flame
Holding back my tears, I couldn’t make stay
Can’t quit this, so damn wicked
To leave California and me
