lyrics

California girls got a special way
of letting you down
it's always sudden but it's never hard
nobody's fault it's just not in the cards
California nights always let you know
when they're gonna go south
you see it coming from a mile away
it doesn't matter if you go or you stay

I've stood on this shore
a thousand times
the sun diving into the waves
but it's different somehow and
I can't quite say what changed

it must be something about you babe
makes me wanna leave my wandering way
that road is just as open
and the ships still sail at dawn
I just let 'em go
I think I'm staying on

California dreams go a darker place after they die
stick sitting on the dock of the bay
Moses himself would've lost his way
so I packed a little bag and I headed east
but didn't get too far
stopped in the desert but it didn't feel right
turned around in that cold blue light

I've stared at this sky
a thousand nights
the stars dying into the day
but it's different this time and
I can't quite say what changed

it must be something about you babe
makes me wanna leave my wandering way
that road is just as open
and the ships still sail at dawn
I just let 'em go
I think I'm staying on
