London Grammar – Californian Soil Lyrics

Californian Soil Lyrics By London Grammar

I left my soul
On Californian soil
And I left my pride
With that woman by my side
I have a willing hand
And I never had a plan
But I, but I found you
But I’m glad I found you here
But I’m glad I’ve got you here
But I never had the name
And I never felt the same
And they will keep on trying it on
And they will keep on trying it on
And they will keep on trying it on
And I never felt the same

I’m young, I’m old
And so you do what you told
I have a willing hand
And so you pack up all your bags
But I’m kinda got you here
But I’m glad I’ve got you here
But I’m glad I’ve got you here
And I never felt the same
At least life is just a game
They keep on trying it on
They keep on trying it on
And they won’t keep on trying it on
Until you never feel the same


“Californian Soil sums up the metaphor of the whole album, something stunningly beautiful that everyone aspires to, with a dark underbelly to it.” says Hannah.
