Arcadia

Recommended Posts

My body is a map of LA

I stand straight like an angel

With a halo

Hanging out the Hilton hotel window screaming

"Hey, baby, let's go"

My chest, the Sierra Madre

My hips every high and byway

That you trace with your fingertips like a Toyota

Run your hands over me like a Land Rover

 

In Arcadia

Arcadia

All roads that lead to you as integral to me as arteries

That pump the blood that flows straight to the heart of me

America

America

I can’t sleep at home tonight, send me a Hilton Hotel

Oh, across on the hill, I’m a lost little girl, finding my way to you

Arcadia

 

My body is a map of LA

and my heart is like paper, I hate you

I’m not from the Land of the Palm

So I know I can’t stay here, I’m not native, but

My curves, San Gabriel, all day

My lips like the fire licks the bay

If you think that you know yourself

You can come over

Lay your hands on me like you're a Land Rover

 

In Arcadia

Arcadia

All roads that lead to you as integral to me as arteries

That get the blood flowing straight to the heart of me

America

I need a miracle

I can’t sleep at home tonight, send me a Hilton Hotel

Oh, across on the hill, I’m a lost little girl, finding my way to you

Arcadia

 

They built me up three hundred feet tall

Just to tear me down

So I’m leaving with nothing but laughter in this town

Arcadia

Finding my way to you

I’m leaving them as I was, five foot eight

Western belle plus the hate that they gave

By the way, thanks for that 

On the way I’ll pray for you

But you’ll need a miracle

America

I like it! Bc she's comparing her body to LA's geography, and her lover to a car that explores her 

 

They also sound really good. The alliteration of t and o sounds in "Trace your hands over me like a Toyota", and of r and o sounds in "Run your hands over me like a Land Rover", and the repetition of "over" across the two lines (then "land rOVER") ahhhhhhhh :agree2:
