Palm Dreams is the eleventh track off Hayley Kiyoko's debut album, Expectations. It was released on March 30, 2018 through Atlantic and Empire.

Background Edit

The song was first announced on March 25, 2018[1] as part of "#CountdownToExpectations" held on Kiyoko's social media profiles. It was the second last song to be announced off of the album.

Born in Los Angeles, California[2], this song dictates Hayley’s current odyssey to stardom which she achieves with some help from the "golden state": California.

Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]
Cruising down the only road
That leads me to a place that I know, I know
Traveled far, I've traveled wide
I had to go away to find home, I’m home

[Pre-Chorus]
All the palm trees have the money
Watching from above the endless party
California, just a bad dream
I will hang around until you want me

[Chorus]
From the hillside (they can party with us)
To the valley (they can party with us)
Watch the sun come up and warm my body
California (they can party with us)
Just a bad dream (they can party with us)
I will hang around until you break me

[Post-Chorus]
Star, stars
I’ll make it to the top
I’m shining like their cars and rings
The palms see everything
Star, stars
They watch you like a hawk
I’ll try to keep ‘em company
The palms see everything

[Verse 2]
Riding all the highs and lows
I’m never looking back 'cause I know, I know
Walking through the danger zones
I’ll make it anywhere 'cause I’m home, I’m home

[Pre-Chorus]
All the palm trees have the money
Watching from above the endless party
California, just a bad dream
I will hang around until you want me

[Chorus]
From the hillside (they can party with us)
To the valley (they can party with us)
Watch the sun come up and warm my body
California (they can party with us)
Just a bad dream (they can party with us)
I will hang around until you break me

[Post-Chorus]
Star, stars
I’ll make it to the top
I’m shining like their cars and rings
The palms see everything
Star, stars
They watch you like a hawk
I’ll try to keep ‘em company
The palms see everything
Star, stars
I’ll make it to the top
I’m shining like their cars and rings
The palms see everything
Star, stars
They watch you like a hawk
I’ll try to keep ‘em company
The palms see everything

[Bridge]
My horizon, stars are shining
Feel them blind me as I get too close
My horizon, stars are shining
Feel them blind me as I get

[Post-Chorus]
Star, stars
I’ll make it to the top
I’m shining like their cars and rings
The palms see everything
Star, stars
They watch you like a hawk
I’ll try to keep ‘em company
The palms see everything
Star, stars
I’ll make it to the top
I’m shining like their cars and rings
The palms see everything
Star, stars
They watch you like a hawk
I’ll try to keep ‘em company
The palms see everything

[Outro]
If you party with us we’ll go up
If you party with us we’ll go up
If you party with us we’ll go up
If you party with us we’ll go up (they can party with us)
If you party with us we’ll go up (they can party with us)
If you party with us we’ll go up (they can party with us)
If you party with us we’ll go up (they can party with us)
If you party with us we’ll go up
If you party
