santa ana wind lyrics – everclear

santa ana wind

i feel safe inside the violence
like i feel safe inside a rollercoaster car
i feel safe in the hills up above it all
sometimes in the middle of the night
i can almost see the stars

living in l.a. makes me think of you
i think about the good times doing
all the bad things that we used to do

i walk the streets at night
to remember why i feel so bad
i walk the streets at night
it helps sometimes to remember why

living in l.a
feels like home in a brand new way
i am like everyone i meet
i have a ghost in my eyes
that will never go away

i walk the streets at night
to understand why i feel so bad
i walk the streets at night
to understand why i am the way i am

we come from a sun
we’re lost out in the cold
we run from the light
it’s the only way we know
i wanna find a better sun
i wanna find a better world
i wanna find a better heart
so i can find me a better girl
i wanna find a place to live inside
all the violence and the rage
oh the santa ana wind
on a sunny day

living in l.a
is the west coast without your head in the sand
can’t explain this place
if you’re not from here you will never understand

i walk the streets at night
i think about all the lives that i have had
i walk the streets at night
i think about why all the love that i can’t have

we come from a sun
we’re lost out in the cold
we fight for the light
it’s the only way we know
i wanna find a better sun
i wanna find a better shine
i wanna find a better world
i wanna find a better life
i wanna find a place to live inside
all the violence and the rage
oh the santa ana wind
on a beautiful day

yeah it is the simple things
that i love about this place
sunshine and mexican food
on a christmas day
oh the noise in the city
is the only way to fall asleep
i think i needed to leave
to realize that this is all
this is where i’m suppose to be

we come from a sun
we’re lost out in the cold
we fight for the light
it’s the only way we know
i wanna find a better sun
i wanna find a better shine
i wanna find a better world
i wanna find me a better life
i wanna find a place
to hide inside all the violence and the rage
but the santa ana wind
on a winter’s day

i can almost see the future
i can almost see the blue sky
in the middle of the day
even though all h*ll is coming down around me now
my santa ana wind
maybe the clouds are gray
