lyrics

A broken gate
Unpaid bills
Mold in the bathroom
Sleeping pills

Carpet stains
A browning lawn
Rooms needing painting
A boy withdrawn

Chorus: But the sun is shining and it’s warmer there
I got friends and I don’t have to be alone
The love of my life’s’ in an office chair
It’s the only place I’ve known
That I’ve ever been at home
California, California

Computers down
No toothpaste
A favorite pair of earrings
Both misplaced

Ragged towels
Sheets with holes
Screws that could use tightening
I’ve no control (But the sun…)

A fairy tale
Gone awry
Hope’s in the corner
Standing by

Shootin’ down
Desperate straights
Get back in the saddle
To a solid state (‘Cause the sun...)

Here I come, here I come, here I come, here I come California
Right back where I started from
