lyrics

I thought after seven months
Since the night I flew away
I’d be happier without you
I’d have so much less to say
And though sometimes it’s easy
Other nights I lay in bed
Waiting for the sleep to settle
California in my head.

It was winter when I left you,
and the mountains filled with snow,
When I landed it was summer
Where nothing doesn’t grow,
I learned all about saudades
In language and in heart
But the right pronunciation
Was not the hardest part.

And I know I wanted this,
And I know it’s been awhile
But I still miss your California song,
And your California smile.

Found my way down to the ocean
Let the water kiss my feet
And I floated in the waves there
As the sun began to sleep.
In the current of the water
My mind drifted back to you,
Knowing he was still awake there,
Watching water kiss you too.

And I know I wanted this,
And I know it’s been awhile
But I still miss your California song,
And your California smile.

It’s not easy to remember
I might not be here again,
And I know that things are good now
And they all come to an end.

And I know I wanted this,
And I know it’s been awhile
But I still miss your California song,
And your California smile.
