Met you on a Sunday
Loved you on a Monday
Left you when the flight touch down

When each day is over
I wish that you were closer
than you are right now

Safe in L.A.
Baby don't fear, I'm always near
Never too far from where you are
A coast away, waitin' for the day when we're both safe in LA
Maybe we're right, maybe we're wrong
Maybe we're both too far gone
A coast away, waitin' for the day when we're both safe in LA

Every time we're endin', every conversation
It doesn't sound quite right
'n' California's waitin'
While your face is fading
Clear out of sight

Safe in L.A.
Baby don't fear, I'm always near
Never too far from where you are
A coast away, waitin' for the day when we're both safe in LA
Maybe we're right, maybe we're wrong
Maybe we're both too far gone
A coast away, waitin' for the day when we're both safe in LA

    Lyric CorrectionI think some of your lyrics are incorrect. It should be:

    "Left you when the flight touched down"
    "Baby don't fear, I'm always near"
    "A coast away, waitin' for the day when we're both safe in LA"
    "While your face is fading clear out of sight"

    My InterpretationI believe that this song is about a person who meets someone while on the road or traveling, but is forced to leave them because she has to go back to California (or LA). Who knows, maybe Greta fell in love with someone while touring :)? Haha. But yes, this is what I think. And the person is just waiting for the moment when they're both reunited, most likely in LA.

    I love The Hush Sound
    I love Gold Motel
    I love Stamps
    I Love The Debate Team
    I love Bob Morris
    I love Greta
    I love Chris
    I love Darren
    I love new bassist guy
