Marie Digby Shares New Song – “L.A. (My Home)”

Now this is the Marie Digby that made me a fan in the first place. When she keeps it simple with the instrumentation and just sings a personal song, she truly shines. Here is a new original called “L.A. (My Home)” and as you can guess it’s an ode to the city of angels where she was raised since a toddler. I truly enjoyed this one. It is heartfelt and beautifully arranged. I wish there were more cuts like this on her last album.

As some of you already know, I was raised in Los Angeles..I’ve been here since I was 2 years old and I’ve met so many people who come in and out of the city from different places, chasing after their dreams. In my late teens and early 20’s I met a lot of aspiring musicians (some of whom became my best friends) but I also had to quickly learn that I’d always end up saying goodbye to them in a matter of years. I have watched some careers sky rocket and many dreams shattered as well.. it’s heartbreaking. But while the others come and go, I always remain here .. because Los Angeles IS my home. I understand the allure of this city and see how cold and cruel it can be as well.. it’s fascinating.

Lyrics after the jump.

The trees of this city never change
the color of leaves, it stays the same
and it’s easy to lose track of time
I’ve watched strangers come and go
bags empty, but holding hope
but it’s easy to be forgotten in this crowd

Here in this city
you’re just like everyone
trying hard to find
something to call your own
all of the people
i have ever met
they never stay for long
i always watch them go
but this is my home.. my home.. my home..

the lights of this city always prove
to be powerful, it seduces you
but the closer you get
it’s not quite as it seems
and I’m just trying to claim a place
tracing lines around the stars I see
hope I make a mark
so they’ll remember my name

But here in this city
i’m just like everyone
trying hard to find
something to call my own
all of the people
i have ever known
they never stay for long
i always watch them go
but this is my home.. my home.. home
this is my home

what if i’m just a fish in the sea
sitting on the ocean floor
what if you’re just a bird up above
waiting to dive in for me
maybe we’re all drifters
searching for our treasure …
