I headed west to dig for gold
Just to try to get lucky 'fore I get too old
I dug myself into a hole
I was feeling that rush but I lost my soul
So goodbye city of angels
I left my angel back at home

Now I know that everything I need is in your eyes
And the grass ain't greener on the other side
Oh I can't believe I ever said goodbye
Had to get it all wrong just to get it right

You got, you got what I need
You got, you got what I need

A thousand miles left behind
The bridges crossed and the mountains climbed
The only thought that crossed my mind
Was winning you back and making you mine
So goodbye city of angels
I left my angel back at home

Now I know that everything I need is in your eyes
And the grass ain't greener on the other side
Oh I can't believe I ever said goodbye
Had to get it all wrong just to get it right

You got, you got what I need
You got, you got what I need

You got everything I'm ever gonna want
Ain't gonna rest 'til I'm back in your arms
You got everything I'm ever gonna need
If you take me back I ain't ever gonna leave
You got everything I'm ever gonna want
Ain't gonna rest until I'm back in your arms
You got everything I'm ever gonna need
If you take me back I ain't ever gonna leave

Now I know that everything I need is in your eyes
And the grass ain't greener on the other side
Oh I can't believe I ever said goodbye
Had to get it all wrong just to get it right

You got, you got what I need
You got, you got what I need
You got, you got what I need
You got, you got what I need

Song facts

Tom Gossin: "Back when Gloriana started, Matt Serletic called us after hearing our demo and asked us to fly to L.A. to meet with him. I started to think about how some people are always trying to track down fame in Hollywood. I thought about how the last time people were in such a hurry to get to California was during the Gold Rush in the 1800s. You could go out there, strike gold, and get rich overnight. In the song I'm drawing a parallel between the two. Back then, it was about physical gold, whereas the gold of today is the allure of fame. It plays into a recurring theme on the record: All the things you had back home will always be more important than the illusion of fame."
