Day 4: Lipstick Love

"From Boston To LA"

Behind The Lyrics

This song is about my personal life. I've always had a dream of packing up all my things in Massachusetts and moving to Los Angeles. This song is about exactly that and moving with my best friend. I basically compare the theme of this song to a 90's Romantic Comedy movie. Fun fact: I didn't even know what Rodeo Drive was until I wrote this song. I always thought of myself as a California kid so this has always been a dream of mine. It's also cool for me to think back on this song because I wrote this song before I even knew I would be moving to LA. So to see this song come into fruition gives it an even more special place in my heart. If you have a dream of doing something, do it. I promise it's worth it.

Lipstick Love

Lyrics

She's got that Hollywood star kinda face

That kinda glow like Marilyn Monroe

I swear my life is perfect, top down in the Mercedes 

The way you look at me, I'm speechless

 

Popping the Prosecco in Venice, watching the sunset over skylines

Hear the spinning of vinyl hum that Maroon 5

She got that lipstick love

I swear that this is love

 

Malibu Pacific kinda, shine in your eyes Diamonds on your wrist, I love it

You can be my J Lo

Ridin’ down Rodeo

We'll be vibin' like it's '94

 

LA sunrise, dreaming of those late nights

Glow over the Hills, setting fire to the sky

White linen on the bed, your arm around my neck 

Conversations on the beach watching

Horizons never end

 

I can't breathe when I think about these nights 

Life should be like I'm waking up to you

She got that lipstick love 

I swear that this is love

 

Malibu Pacific kinda, shine in your eyes Diamonds on your wrist, I love it

You can be my J Lo

Ridin’ down Rodeo

We'll be vibin' like it's '94

 

Look at me baby, smile golden like I've never seen 

Look at us now sitting backseat in a limousine

She got that lipstick love

I swear that this is love

 

From Boston to LA were skipping states, forever 18 

I've never felt so alive, put a ring on the night

You still got that East coast kinda shine on your face 

Baby give me a taste, let's fall in love for the day

 

Malibu, Pacific kinda shine in your eyes Diamonds on your wrist, I love it

You can be my J Lo

Ridin’ down Rodeo

We'll be vibin' like it's '94

 

Look at me baby, smile golden like I've never seen

Look at us now sitting backseat in a limousine

She got that lipstick love

I swear that this is love

Another weird video I made in my mom's bathroom

Same story as before lol. I wanted to film a video for the song to try to promote it. Came out weird, that is all.

These are photos from the first time I had ever been to Los Angeles.

At the time of these photos, I had no idea I would someday live in Los Angeles. It's wild for me to think back on these photos because moving across the Untied States didn't seem possible to me. I always thought it was just a dream, but one day I decided to take a leap and it was one of the best decisions of my life.

Thanks for being here
