Grimes “California” Lyrics

This, this music makes me cry
It sounds just like my soul, oh
Oh I’m not ready to win
Oh Lord, cause I don’t wanna know what they say
Cause I get carried away
Commodifying all the pain

The things they see in me, I cannot see myself
When you get bored of me, I’ll be back on the shelf
And when the ocean rises up above the ground
Maybe I’ll drown in…

California
You only like me when you think I’m looking sad
California
I didn’t think you’d end up treating me so bad

Oh, I, I, I
Come Monday, it’s a dream
I, I, I
Broken my own heart again
Chasing something beautiful
Oh Lord, but I don’t understand what they say
Cause I get carried away
Commodifying all the pain

The things they see in me, I cannot see myself
When you get bored of me, I’ll be back on the shelf
And when the ocean rises up above the ground
Baby I’ll drown in…

California
You only like me when you think I’m looking sad
California
I didn’t think you’d end up treating me so bad
California
You only like me when you think I’m looking sad
California
I didn’t think you’d end up treating me so bad

Oh, I, oh, I
Oh na, na, na, ne

Today, Grimes released a music video for a re-worked version of her song “California,” the third off her 2015 album Art Angels. The video shows Grimes’ penchant for the bizarre, featuring some wacky costumes and an eclectic series of locations ranging from a colorful basketball court to a sculpture studio.

The new version of the song goes a long way to expand the potential of the album track as a single, with new drums and the original version’s guitar swapped out for warm synth. See Grimes’s explanation for the changes below:

Art Angels is available on Amazon.
