lyrics

Learning To Let Go
(Bella Hardy)

In California I cried 
Familiar world but not my own  
Electric buzz the TV’s shown me all my life  
Another way of being known 
Another way of being 
 
I’d had my fill of city sounds 
Of pacing San Francisco round and round and round 
 
So we took the Golden Gate to another land 
Down winding roads out to the sea 
but still I could not hear the waves 
Just the work I’d left behind 
whispering poisoned words to me 
 
In California I cried 
And with each breathless tear I realised 
 
that I’m still learning to let go 
I’m still learning to let go 
I’m still learning to let go 
I’m still learning to let go 
 
California, California 
I know the who but I still don’t know what I want to be 
California, I’m still learning to let go 
I write it on magnolia leaves 
California, stay with me 
 
In Berkeley, on a call through 
While the barber does his thing to you 
I find myself sat beneath the pink white trees 
while streams of students flow around and around me 
 
Such rivers of potential 
In an intangible symphony 
 
and I’m still learning to let go 
I’m still learning to let go 
I’m still learning to let go 
I’m still learning to let go 
 
California, California 
I know the who but I still don’t know what I want to be 
California, I’m still learning to let go 
I write it on magnolia leaves 
California, stay with me
