Oh, vaguely, I remember
power locks and electric
The son of California
Here I go
I came and went
seen and conquered
I had never been so in love

Paint your rivers and your cities
and your guns in gold
Tell the stories and the secrets
like they gotta be told
I come back to this town, falling in on myself
I have never been so alone

Driving through the valley
toward a girl that I thought I wanted
I am swimming
in a dirty sea
Salt water
and air feel just like a coffin
I wonder
Will you remember me?

Paint your rivers and your cities
and your guns in gold
Tell the stories and the secrets
like they gotta be told
I come back to this town,
falling in on myself
I have never been so alone

I'm amazed (I'm amazed I'm amazed I'm amazed)
I can follow through
And I know you don't want me to
So I shake, when I do, all the little things hidden
inside come loose
And I fell apart from loving you

Paint your rivers and your cities
and your guns in gold
Tell the stories and the secrets
like they gotta be told
I come back to this town,
falling in on myself I have never been so alone
