OneRepublic – West Coast

I OneRepublic sono tornati con il nuovo singolo “West Coast“.

Il brano è stato scritto dal frontman e voce della band, Ryan Tedder, nel 2015. Inizialmente doveva essere parte integrante del quinto album in studio dei OneRepublic, Human (2021), ora invece è catalogato come singolo apripista del nuovo disco in lavorazione e in uscita a breve.

West Coast è una sorta di omaggio alla Costa Ovest americana e in particolare alla California, luogo in cui Ryan Tedder ha fondato la sua band nel 2002.

Il video della canzone è stato diretto da Tomás Whitmore, che per loro aveva già realizzato quello del singolo “Run“.

OneRepublic West Coast – TESTO

I’ve been dreamin’ ‘bout the west coast (I’ve been dreamin’)
Found some faces that I don’t know (I’ve been dreamin’ about it)
Give me the sun for just a year (ooh)
I’ll kiss the sky and disappear

I’ve been starin’ up at the greyest skies
Tryin’ to find myself some luck but it’s runnin’ dry
It’s like the weather makes the worst of my cloudy mind
I could really use a dose of some paradise
Sometimes you gotta run from a broken heart
Before I turn into a ghost need a brand new start
Get myself headed to the coast, man it ain’t that far
Hey, they got sun in LA and some shinin’ stars

I’ve been dreamin’ ‘bout the west coast (I’ve been dreamin’)
Found some faces that I don’t know (I’ve been dreamin’ about it)
Seein’ signs for California (ooh)
Trade the shade for somethin’ warmer
I’ve been dreamin’ ‘bout the west coast (I’ve been dreamin’)
Where the people take it real slow (I’ve been dreamin’ about it)
I need the sun for just a year (ooh)
I’ll kiss the sky and disappear

Ain’t felt a drop now for forty days
But still they’re washing cars and they don’t show any age
Ain’t nothin’ that you want’ll cost you more than time
If you’re tryna find yourself, better get in line
I’m countin’ up my money and spendin’ to get it right
Got the future in my pocket, I’m spendin’ it all tonight
Like a prophet with the vision, I finally see the light
And you know

I’ve been dreamin’ ‘bout the west coast (I’ve been dreamin’)
Found some faces that I don’t know (I’ve been dreamin’ about it)
Seein’ signs for California (ooh)
Trade the shade for somethin’ warmer
I’ve been dreamin’ ‘bout the west coast (I’ve been dreamin’)
Where the people take it real slow (I’ve been dreamin’ about it)
I need the sun for just a year (ooh)
I’ll kiss the sky and disappear
The west coast

When I last saw the starry skies
All I wanna do is fly
Take me where the sun shines bright, oh

I’ve been dreamin’ ‘bout the west coast
Time to find myself a new glow
I need the sun for just a year
I’ll kiss the sky and disappear

I’ve been dreamin’ ‘bout the west coast (I’ve been dreamin’)
Found some faces that I don’t know (I’ve been dreamin’ about it)
Seein’ signs for California (ooh)
Trade the shade for somethin’ warmer
I’ve been dreamin’ ‘bout the west coast (I’ve been dreamin’)
Where the people take it real slow (I’ve been dreamin’ about it)
I need the sun for just a year (ooh)
I’ll kiss the sky and disappear
