I wanna take this money get out of town
Buy some time we can make it some how
Waitin' for a dream to come around
You know me better than that
Baby I'm not down

I left a letter for my sister in a bottle full of booze
One day I'm gonna love you too
But for now, I'm runnin' oh
I'm runnin' south

They say you better have a way back home
But I know, they wont forget my name back home
Cause they know I'm runnin' oh
I'm runnin' south

Can ya see it on my face
Small town girl never new her place
So I got first in line for the race
People tellin' me don't let your dreams go to waste
But what are dreams if you never sleep
Now my dreams are alive
This life is sweet
Drippin' in my lights
A piece of the pie, I think I need a slice
How can I be lost in the dark?
I thought I was walkin' on stars
And even if I wanted to restart
I can't go back home cause I came this far
So, can ya see it on my face man?
Are you amazed, the way I make magic in the wasteland
Los Angeles California I love you bitch, let me lick you and put a stamp up
On ya
A flower blooms and then a bug eats it
I heard a rumor, should I feed it?
I got a secret, can you keep it?
Shh listen [listen listen...]

    I think this song is about her life gaining fame. She left her old doings because she loves her career that much. And i think that the "rumor" that she's talking about are her haters making all those negative things about her. Blahblah. I dunno. That's what i know. Xd
    i can't interpret it with words but i have many thoughts in this song. This song is just awesome. :)
