"Come To California" as written by and Matthew Sweet....
started with a rose
ended up a millionairess queen
in your new electric chair
sweetly sitting there building up steam
watch your mind little bit
or you're gonna have to make believe

flew into LA
caught a screening of your lifelong dream
blew it in LA
now you're desperate to create your own scene
but watch your mind little bit
'cause you're headed into the machine

come to California . . .

come to California
baby let it all hang out
come to California
tell us what it's all about
but watch your mind little bit
'cause the future is beginning now

come to California . . .

but watch your mind little bit
'cause you're headed into the machine

come to California . . .

    General CommentIt's pretty much about Matthew's move to L.A. and his apprehensions about it. Great tune, though. Often used to open his concerts because of it's high energy.

    General Commentcould he spend less time on his lyrics?

    ;)

    I love sweet, but i'd think he could give us more than this.......Sorry more negative; but this is one of the few songs that doesn't feel the effect of not having the top Lead Guitarist on board.
    It hurt 80 % of this Album.
