California

Written By: Marcellino Vishnudatt

California

Well, we got to S.F.O. and left the plane all drained of wine.
We chased the sun and left the moon behind, we traveled back in time.
To Anne and Ami’s place, well, you know, it’s little Tori’s too.
They’ve got the best of remedies for when you’re feeling blue.

Down on Highway One, all the way from North to South.
I got my eyes wide open to see just what it’s all about.
I got my guitar on my back, a suitcase in my hand,
I’m rolling down the highway not knowing where I’ll end.
But every day, no matter where I stay, I turn my head each way,
‘Cause I’m looking for a girl named California.

California,
I see you in my dreams,
Are you gonna quit this crazy scene?

Grass Valley, meditating at the falls,
Nothing but the sound of water, of the dogs and the bird calls.
The forest makes you humble, quiets down your mind.
Being one with nature in another frame of time.
Still each and every day, no matter what you say, I feel my soul drifting away.
While I’m looking for a girl named California.

California,
I see you in my dreams,
Lately nothing’s what it seems.
Oh, California, California,
How I long to see your smile.
Can I stay for just awhile?

I’ve been so lonely, my heart was aching all the time.
I’m hoping for some love that I don’t know where to find.
I looked into your eyes and my soul it came alive,
And now I’m at the end of the line…

I met a guy who was a painter, but he was a troubadour instead.
Had only love and music pouring out of his head.
I know that I’m blessed, blessed to see the light of day.
But still I’m looking for a girl that’s going by the name of California.

California,
I see you in my dreams,
Are you gonna quit this crazy scene?
Oh, California, California,
How I long to see your smile.
Will you let me stay for just a little while?

California,
It’s just like that…
