Santa Anas flowing through your sundress
You were always young and unimpressed
I was always nervous on the verge of stressed

Sailing seas of Aquavit I start to cry
Dandelions flee over the hillside
Wishes over wishes all in genocide

But these are coastline lies
They change with my mood as the moon changes the tide
And as the Santa Anas blow through the meadow
I run to you on the other side
And I roar
Like a dandelion

Santa Anas flying from the south end
Now all we need’s a spark to start something
Wildfires up and down the mountains

Santa Anas crash against the ocean
Weeping tidal waves dramatic motions
Wind and water form a potent potion

And we fill our cups
Say cheers to the old kinds of us
And we dance in the winds ‘till we become some dandelion dust
And we love
‘Cause we trust
We trust
Yeah we love
Through the ash
Through the gust
