Under California Skies

Soundtrack “My Funny Valentine” by Chris Botti.

Sitting here, waiting on the sky to snow

This town looks better dressed in white

Your footprints from my door to your car

I stare from my window

Red taillights fading into your city of gray

You said you couldn’t figure me out

I said, I know what you mean

Cause, I can’t figure me out either

Bless the losers and the beginners 

January’s the coldest month of winter

Don’t let the resolutions for the New Year fool you

I’m full of love and rage

Oh such a fine line

I’m in hate with myself 

Look what you’ve done to me

I want to find me a new city

Where winter never comes

Maybe go west under California skies

Sit on cliffs and feel the warmth of July’s sun

Bless the losers and the beginners 

January’s the coldest month of winter

Don’t let the resolutions for the New Year fool you

  1. Listened to Beautiful Loser, Bob Seagar Saturday. Dig that beat. Yes the beginner mind.  Bless those like a child. Seek first the kingdom of God (whatever that is to you, nature, vastness, traditional) and all else will be afforded to you.  Been resonating with me… Nice writing. Subtle reference to starting over and over and over…which is what we do in life. Makes me grin.  Subtly of course.
