She's a good girl, loves her mama
Loves Jesus and America too
She's a good girl, crazy 'bout Elvis
Loves horses and her boyfriend too

It's a long day, livin' in Reseda
There's a freeway, runnin' through the yard
And I'm a bad boy, 'cause I don't even miss her
I'm a bad boy for breakin' her heart

And I'm free, free fallin'
Yeah I'm free, free fallin'

All the vampires, walkin' through the valley
Move west down, Ventura Blvd.
And all the bad boys, are standing in the shadows
All the good girls, are home with broken hearts

And I'm free, I'm free fallin'
Yeah I'm free, free fallin'

I wanna glide down, over Mulholland
I wanna write her, name in the sky
I wanna free fall, out into nothin'
Gonna leave this, world for awhile

And I'm free, free fallin'
Yeah I'm free, free fallin'

And I'm free, free fallin'
Oh!

Free fallin'
And I'm free, oh! free fallin'

    He's a guy from the streets that knows he has the perfect girl. He pretty sure that he's in love with her. But, she doesn't like the guys he hangs out with. The guys keep badgering him saying"you don't need her... She's ms goody two shoes! " he knows how everything goes down on the streets. So, he just wants to get away from it all... And free fall! Just let his troubles float away! But, he still torn and wants her to realize he really loves her and that he's creative and special! So, he wants to tag the biggest canvas there is with her name... The sky! He's a romantic feeling stuck on the streets! Yeah! (4kp) bf
