Story Behind the Song
Wanted to write a happy uplifting song that would give thanks to something (or someone) in a delightful way ... be it a person or a product ... like it could be a brand of fresh orange juice? ... or a nice coffee drink? ... or a well needed vacation? ... or an expensive mattress? ... could even be a person! Loved the feel of the song and the words just spilled out when the groove was established. It's not a complicated thing, just a "feels happy" thing.
La La Land
YOU'RE SUCH A NATURAL BLESSING TO ME
YOU'RE WITH ME EVERYWHERE I GO AND YOU SEE
YOU PUT THE COLOR IN MY CHEEK, THE SPRING IN MY STEP
THE OOH IN MY LA LA ... YEAH YOU'RE THE BEST
I COULDN'T FACE ANOTHER DAY WITHOUT YOU IN IT
I NEED YOU LIKE A 2ND HAND NEEDS A MINUTE
YOU'RE THE SMILE ON MY FACE, THE SUN IN MY DAY
THE OOH IN MY LA LA IF I'M DREAMIN' DON'T WAKE ME CUZ I'M
SLEEPIN OUT IN LA LA LA LA LA LAND
AND I'M DREAMIN' OUT IN LA LA LA LA LA LAND
AND IT'S SWEET OUT IN LA LA LA LA LA LAND
(don't wake me up!)
