going to california…

In less than 6 days, my journey moves me to California. It is a place that I’ve always dreamed of living in — to feel the stories of old Hollywood and the uninhibited ways of a Los Angeles rock n’ roll lifestyle, to enjoy spending alone time along the beaches of Malibu getting lost in tranquility and writing poetry, and to eventually fall in love with where I live, what I create, someone else, and myself in San Francisco.

GOING TO CALIFORNIA

by LED ZEPPELIN

Spent my days with a woman unkind,
Smoked my stuff and drank all my wine.
Made up my mind to make a new start,
Going to California with an aching in my heart.
 

Someone told me there’s a girl out there
With love in her eyes and flowers in her hair.

Took my chances on a big jet plane,
Never let them tell you that they’re all the same.
The sea was red and the sky was grey,
Wondered how tomorrow could ever follow today.
The mountains and the canyons started to tremble and shake
As the children of the sun began to awake.

Seems that the wrath of the gods
Got a punch on the nose and it started to flow;
I think I might be sinking.
Throw me a line if I reach it in time
Ill meet you up there where the path
Runs straight and high.

To find a queen without a king;
They say she plays guitar and cries and sings.
La la la la
Ride a white mare in the footsteps of dawn
Trying to find a woman who’s never, never, never been born.
Standing on a hill in my mountain of dreams,
Telling myself its not as hard, hard, hard as it seems.
