Lyrics

California Christmas

Written By: Brian Martinson

Christmas cheers flooded by sad sighs
You were off to Denver and holiday songs
No need to say goodbye
Your anxious eyes were already gone
I found myself at Monterey Bay
Sittin’ on our seaside bench Christmas day
Waves splashed and sea otters played

(Chorus)
Snow just melts on Santa Cruz beaches
Fir trees won’t grow on Monterey cliffs
Can’t mosaic your smile on sand drifts
Pacific sunsets just aren’t your sparklin’ eyes
Just misty fog without you
California Christmas in blue

In my never-ending winter
I’m back on our bench and windy beach
Ocean crests still shimmer
Seagull cries still echo with time out of reach
Sittin‘ next to the spot meant just for you
I see our initials freshly carved in wood
Cuz’ dreams once brought you back too

(Bridge)
Why can't California Christmas
Melt our freezing blizzard away
So we’re at our bench the same day
Finally feel tides always just offshore
See waves of dreams still waiting there

Snow just melts on Santa Cruz beaches
Fir trees won’t grow on Monterey cliffs
Can’t mosaic your smile on sand drifts
Pacific sunsets just aren’t your sparkling eyes
Just misty fog without you
California Christmas in blue
