Ever since I laid my eyes on you, nothing was the same.
Even the clouds I land on change
Like setting fire to the motherfucking rain
From the first time to the next,
Or the next to the first time
Do we have to still keep the shivery or
Can we just be original & corny?
I want to have a history, a friendship
With the place that I’m in
I've never pretended with art &
Art doesn't pretend with me,
But what the fuck that got to do with anything?
What is the meaning of California in New York anyway?
Have you ever tried to put something so big,
In a place that’s so much smaller?
Is it the simplicity & elegance?
Or is it the moisture from your waters?
Why can’t anyone else be as exceptional as you?
I come to realize that they’re in need
Of something you got but,
The funny thing that comes to mind is that
How can a person experience being in another place
If it never even been there?
How do I know where we’ll end up if we never even tried?
How can we make up assumptions of loving you?
How can I show New York the art of love,
If it’s all in my head?
Don’t dig so deep into it
The title is not meant to be understood
That’s the beauty of it
It isn’t supposed to make sense,
The question is…how can California be in New York?
If California can really be in New York,
Then why can’t I seem to see you in the lights?
Maybe it’s the beauty of you that’s contrast the two
Or the art from the cities that fall to the urban crews
Yeah the vision is killing me but I want you to be in it
It’s more than just how you look on paper,
It’s your self confidence that keeping me infatuated
Your drive is driving me crazy
Now I’ve driven far into a place
Where I don’t even know if
New York can really be the place I’m looking for?
The evening stars are all around her
And now she standing out in the city
Of unmoving time just wanting to know
How can an enigmatic California be in a place
Where it haven’t come to pass
The way you got me, has given me the urge
To keep digging more into you
I want to do this right
But does waiting really make a better journey's end?
Maybe I can fuck the shit out your ambitions
Until I get me an answer?
From the first day I saw you
I fell for you stunning image
I can tell you were sculptured
From the hands of God
And you’re still the one that’s got my mind in a shackle
Never thought I’ll see much pleasure from the
Sexiness of your appeal
Every time I looked into your eyes
I can see our future from your brown eyes, but
What is holding California back from accepting
That it may never be in New York?
Does it feel frightened to step up
Into a new light, a new road, a new image?
Why California wants to be in New York anyway?
While I’m waiting on your answer
You’re probably out there being all that you can be
But I want to know what do you inspire to be?
Because your intellect is something that’s enticing me
Yeah I can admit I’m sweating you,
See I like the person who you are
But I’m in love with the visions of you & me
Becoming one city
How can love fit into a place where it’s over capacity?
How deep do we have to go until
We find the purpose that was ordained to be?
Maybe if California can ever be in New York
We can do the things we never got the time to do?
But does the cold distance of 3300 miles
Between us ever come to mind?
Maybe it’s your passive aggression
I feel when I try to get close to you
How can California ever be in a place where it shouldn’t be?
Maybe that’s why were isolated in two diverse parts of
The world in the first place
However, maybe we can build up on something that we never had,
Then again are we still talking about art or love?
But like before what the fuck does art got to do with this?
I want to make you understand that I want
You in more ways you can ever envision
I want to put you in positions that only
I can hold you in
Now can that be considered art?
Or is it just love?
Is it possible that is always seem like there’s a chance,
A chance to adapt to the feeling of being lost &
That maybe I’m waiting to outgrow my relationship with art?
But never thought it would mature & become a superior part in my life
I feel so comfortable with being in New York
I can be myself around you & you won’t judge
Is California & New York ….love, art, state maybe even a person?
It doesn’t even matter
I just try to cope on how I ain’t met you yet
You can never know what the outcome will be until you give it a try.
So enlightened me of why you’re always in my Cali dreams?
Can you share your thoughts, secrets & ambitions with me?
Girl you can keep your flaws. I won't judge.
I wanna be in a place
Where the girls would rather chase their dreams
Rather than to chase these men
For New York I will stand outside in the rain
And wait for you to love California
Let’s ignite this fire they could have
Maybe the two is needed together
So they can finally shift the culture of art?
Just give me one moment to hold you in my arms
I will make you feel secured under the New York lights
With this California warmth
I want more than your body, I want your smile,
Your soul, your love & forever
I don’t want us to feel that we never gave it try
So why not attempt to understand
Why can’t we be together?
You can’t make someone else heart feels the same thing you do
Maybe that’s why you feel
California won’t ever be there
But it is & it will be.
I can feel it in the air so
Just let my love garnish you
And let my body protect you
I will make you feel that this California love
Is surrounding your New York ambiance, because
You reformed my whole life with your presence
There’s always that one person
That will always have your heart
So baby before you blow up & enter the streets of fame
Under the New York lights
Can you promise that one day
We’ll try to be together?
I’m just trying to connect with something &
Those New York lights will hold her down
Until I make it there
You used to say you can be whoever you want
All I got to do is believe in myself
So do you believe in us?
Because once you do, you’ll see
That California can indeed be in New York
It can be concealed in one of those city condos
Where all the pretty girls are sleeping
I’ll treat you good girl like you’re famous
But someone has been hiding you
You’re surrounded by the big buildings & everlasting nightlife
And it’s the reason why you’ll never get bored
Because this is a new lustful life for you………………………
For those who still don’t understand
The point of California in New York
Is not the population difference or the weather
The objective of it all is to realize that
All that he’s looking for…is in New York…it’s in her
And that once he realizes that it’s not about bringing
The population over with him to make it fit
It’s about him bringing himself to her
Making her feel like 1 + 1 = 2 and that’s all she’ll need
Instead of 19,570,261
Because he is California
And she is New York
All she needs is him & all he needs is her
To make a smaller place feels so immense
Like California is in New York
Who’s better for you than the ambitious visionary?
When it’s all said & done, the visions he has
Will in due time come to pass
And all they’ll need is a light & a torch
To make it last in…….
California in New York.
