90 minutes from Manhattan I was born in '96 I grew up on the east end And it sure felt like the sticks But I miss the Laurel Canyon Of 1968 Oh, they left New York City But I'm 50 years too late Now when I was a young girl I got on my first plane Down to Huntsville, Alabama I could barely spell my name But I miss the crescent city And the magic in the air Oh, life was slow and easy The one night I spent there Now I have friends in Bushwick A few in Jersey too But they all work too much now Like rent is always due And I miss Greenwich Village Playing old folk songs Planning the resistance Long before my folks were born I miss cities I've never been to And friends I've never met Romanticize and daydream It'll all come around again

Why'd you have to go and leave me all alone With nothing but our inside jokes Why'd you leave me starry-eyed and flat broke All of my plans turned to smoke Well, I can tell you what I know And I can share all that I own A five dollar hat, a full tank of gas, and a free cup of coffee to go I will always sing your favorite Beach Boys song And I'll sing this fake honky tonk Roll the windows down and let my hair tangle If it means that you'll sing along Well, I can tell you what I know And I can share all that I own A five dollar hat, a full tank of gas, and a free cup of coffee to go Well, I can tell you what I know And I can share all that I own A five dollar hat, a full tank of gas, and a free cup of coffee to go

My check engine light was on When I reached the Rio Grande We hadn't been gone long But I wished I had a van I sure wished I had a van My little Pontiac gets me To where I need to go From point A to point B New York to El Paso New York to El Paso We left North Caroline Thinkin' we were in the clear But that little orange light It followed us down here It followed us down Well I never saw a bigger sky And I never stopped asking why Cause we saw New Orleans And we saw the end of the world But out in Joshua Tree It was all Instagram girls It was just Instagram girls We drove from coast to coast Saw our country critically Seeking, as do most Some authenticity A little authenticity
