They're playing their guitars with stars in their eyes on broadway
They're just paying theirs due and waiting for news on a big break
I wish you were here
Cause sometimes i get lonely
Guess i'm not the only new girl in town

Mama I promise i'll be alright
I'll call and say i love you every night
I'm just trying to write the story of my life
Whooooo
And you know about this dream I gotta chase
I'm getting a little close every day
California not that far away
I'm not that far away

There's so many new pieces and beautiful places in town
I'm learning the ropes on this crazy road on going down
I'm making my way
No one said that it'll be easy
Trust me, believe me
I'm where i belong

Mama I promise i'll be alright
I'll call and say i love you every night
I'm just trying to write the story of my life
Whooooo
And you know about this dream I gotta chase
I'm getting a little close every day
California not that far away
I'm not that far away

We're miles apart
But your in my heart
I keep you with me every where i go

Mama I promise i'll be alright
I'll call and say i love you every night
I'm just trying to write the story of my life
Whooooo
And you know about this dream I gotta chase
I'm getting a little close every day
California not that far away
I'm not that far away
I'm not that far away
I'm not that far away

    General CommentDefinatly one of my favorite songs. Go Jennette! <333
    The meaning of the song is simple: She's following her dreams, and she doesn't want her mom to miss/worry about her, because she's doing fine and they are always in each others hearts.
