A Long Drive Home to Tarzana

Album: Americana (2017)
  • New England to Hollywood
    Seems so far away
    Like all roads lead us to California

    It's a long long way to paradise, isn't it?
    In the never ending search for all perfection
    And it seems like an eternity
    Since we first turned the ignition
    And made our way down the highway
    Because I told you lies
    It seems a never ending lonesome drive

    And now the road is getting clear
    The exit sign is very near
    The empty spaces will lead us round
    Hope we can find our new hometown
    It's a long drive home to Tarzana
    But once we're there
    We will see there's nothing there
    Except that space
    Beautiful space
    We drove so far to find this place

    It's a long drive home to Tarzana
    This space that community
    All freeways meet to Tarzana
    No more ghettos or urban strife
    It's fine with me
    It's fine with me

    It's a long long way to paradise, isn't it? Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
