I thought I'd write a song about a summer spent working in California, and which allowed me to visit LA and New York for the first time. I met some truly wonderful people there, both at work and elsewhere, and its a time I will cherish and never forget for the rest of my life...

I took the cover photo in Silverlake, LA on Independence Day, 2015.


Though the room is spinning
My head don't feel too bad
From a night out drinking
On Sunset Boulevard

We can take an Uber
Out to Santa Monica
And walk to Venice Beach
To watch some movies

Then I'll go to Hollywood
To spend an evening
At the Whisky-A-Go-Go
And smoke at the Rainbow

Then I'll take an aeroplane
Out to New York City
And go out drinking there
On Bleecker Street somewhere

And I'll smoke some cigarettes
Outside The Bitter End
And on MacDougal Street
With the spirit of Hendrix

And I'll take a selfie
With the Statue of Liberty
Freedom's light still burning warm
All across America

Then home to L.A.
I can take an Uber
To get back to Silverlake
For Independence Day
