City Liedtext

City West coast friendship Liedtext

Are you out there

Where the rainy days begin

To feel rather sad

And the walls are closing in

Like the darkness around me

It’s so hard to look away

When the daylight doesn’t ever stay

Above this dull apartment view

Oh, I will surround you

It’s quite clear that I’m stuck here

So I’ll devise a plan

And cut out a door

In my new living room floor

The porch light is so bright

That I will quickly sneak down

The dark metal shape

Of the rusty fire escape

I bought a one way ticket

Cause I knew I’d never see the ground

Unless I was aboard a jet plane

And we were going down

When I wiped the tears from my eyes

The warm water took me by surprise

And I woke up beside the ocean

I realized I must be in California

Aloha, my happy west coast friends

Do you feel alive

When the breaking waves arrive

And wash all around you?

The beach homes and Oceanside

Are quite well known

By the evening tide

And we can sleep where we reside

With redwoods around us

The blue air is up there

And could I bring it down

I bottle it up and save it

For a sweet summer night

I bought a one way ticket

Cause I knew I’d never see the ground

Unless I was aboard a jet plane

And we were going down

When I wiped the tears from my eyes

The warm water took me by surprise

And I woke up beside the ocean

I realized I must be in California

I must be in California

Am I awake or is this just a dream?

The new year is out here

And I will make a lovely list

Of your charms

So I’ll never feel alone in your arms

I must be in California

I must be in California

(Oh my dear, I can feel you here

So stay right there, I can feel you everywhere)

I must be in California
