Lyrics

 

Marilyn, American 

 

Verse:              

I am envious/

To be there/ 

In blazing blue skies/

Every day, overtime/

 

I have a desire/

To witness it all/

The bustle on the streets/

The people and magazines/

 

Looking airbrushed/                

In the magic/

Of this land/

Everything’s damned/ 

 

It’s twisted/

Not perfect/

I don’t care/

I just want to be there/

 

Chorus:

With Marilyn/                          

American/

Beauty of the west coast/

Alive dreams and sunshine/

Be like Marilyn, American/

I got Katherine on my mind/

Ava is divine/

 

I’m searching/

for comfort and warmth/

I’m not getting it here/

This boredom is an overflow/

 

Of emotions/

that wait and wait/

for my time to come/

I am not done/

 

With my life/

It’s beginning/

Somewhere new/

Where everything’s blue/

 

In the sunshine/

of California/

I feel it near/

 

I just want to be there/

 

Chorus:

 With Marilyn/

 American/

Tired of the northwest/

Too cold and desolate/

Be like Marilyn, American/

Watching Bogie on the screen/

Living in serenity

 Bridge:

I feel it near/ Scat 

I feel it near/

I feel it near/ 

I feel it near/

 

Chorus:

Marilyn, American/ 

Ready to begin anew/

My tight hold long gone now/

Be like Marilyn, American/

I’m now the one on the stage/

 I’m living in my new age/ 

Marilyn, American/ repeat
