  • I've got a love and hate relationship with LA
    Off the plane, paint my face in the car, park my heart at the valet
    I watch the sun sink down over Santa Monica Boulevard
    When I'm lonely and I'm missin' home
    But other times, I feel like my blood is runnin' Cali

    I've got some famous friends that I could call
    But I don't know if I'm cool enough
    And what's worse than spendin' time alone
    Is one of them not pickin' up
    It's hard to grow and time to go
    But some days I wanna stay
    I got a love and hate relationship with LA

    I wonder if I'll get invited to the party
    (I wonder if I'll get invited to the party)
    Yeah and if I do, will I go? If I go, will I know somebody? (Will I even know somebody?)
    I'm on my third glass of wine tryna find conversation
    In a room with bigger names
    But other days I'm lookin' out for real estate

    Confetti's fallin', friends are callin'
    But which part is reality?
    But if I let down my hair in the ocean air
    Will Tennessee be mad at me?
    Yeah, I know it ain't a one-way road
    But sometimes it feels that way
    I got a love and hate relationship with LA

    Yeah, ooh
    Yeah, ooh

    Sometimes it feels like it's all real
    But nothin' here is as it seems
    I ask myself, does it feed my soul or my anxiety?
    Carpet's red, ego's fed, but it's myself that I have to face
    That's why I've got a love and hate relationship with LA

    Yeah, ooh
    Yeah, ooh Writer/s: Kelsea Ballerini
