More Inspiration – Going to California by Led Zeppelin

Can’t say why this one does it for me either. I find the song haunting and I love some of the lines:

“Made up my mind to make a new start,
Going to california with an aching in my heart.
Someone told me theres a girl out there
With love in her eyes and flowers in her hair.”

I particularly like:

The sea was red and the sky was grey,
“Wondered how tomorrow could ever follow today.
The mountains and the canyons started to tremble and shake
As the children of the sun began to awake.”

One day I’ll use these images in a story.
