"California" as written by Ben Dunk and Dave Thomson....
On a lonely day
I look out on the freeway
I can fantasize about
The car I drive
I don't need the light on
I can find my way
It's been so long
Now I have to say

CHORUS:
I'm going to California
I'm gonna live the life
Sipping on tequila
Night after night
Dreaming of the moment
When everything looks right
A little bit of love
Goes a long way tonight

I'm on my way
Heading for the sun
That's where I'll stay
I'm never going back home
Do you ever feel like
You need a change?
Hang out where
No one knows your name

(chorus)

Would you like
To meet me there?
We'll be dancing on the sand
These days will never end
No they'll go
On and on and on
On a lonely day
I look out on the freeway
I can fantasize about
The car I drive
I don't need the light on
I can find my way
It's been so long
Now I have to say
It's been so long
Now I have to say

(Repeat chorus twice)

A little bit of love,
A little bit of love
A little bit of love
Goes a long way tonight
Oh yeah on my way
