"Playing Favorites" as written by and Watts/gryskiewicz/golla/vasoli....
I guess the most that I can do
Is make a call and tell you the truth
Sing the words in melody
And hope that you'll believe me
Here's another song for you
So this one this one makes two
Still don't know where to begin
I'll just leave it at this

I'm sure you always feel my eyes on you
But i hope that you will never feel unwanted
Wait for me to move out west
It's ok if you don't
I hope you know
You're my favorite thing
About the west coast
I wish I stayed
I hope you wait
So here I am
Counting down the days
Till California comes

This is the least that I can do
You know I'm bad at calling you
The best way I can accept
The lonely words I miss you
I'll say it but I'm sure you knew
You're what I look most forward to
Coming back to where I've been
I'll just leave it at this

I'm sure you always feel my eyes on you
But I hope that you will never feel unwanted
If you feel unwanted
Wait for me to move out west
It's ok if you don't
I hope you know
You're my favorite thing
About the west coast
I wish I stayed
I hope you wait
So here I am
Counting down the days
Till California comes

Wait for me to move out west
It's ok if you don't
I hope you know
You're my favorite thing
About the west coast
I wish I stayed
I hope you wait
So here I am
Counting down the days
Till California comes

Till California comes

    General Commenti personally dont listen to all their music but when i heard this on the Punk Goes Acoustic album...it immediately became one of my favorite songs because the lyrics were basically exactly what i was going through (moved away from home and all my friends and especially my best friend adrianne) so this song represents a bunch for me. anybody know who thi song is about?

    General CommentKenny wrote this song for a girl I think named Michelle. I know this because at a concert in Hollywood she was sitting on the stage when they did this one and Kenny said she came to all their Cali shows and the song was dedicated to her.

    General Commentthis has got to be my favorite starting line song. it's gorgeous.

    funny how time and distance are small things that cause so much pain.

    General Commentthis song talks of how i felt with my previous relationship because she was my favorite thing but not in the west coast but in all the earth.
    this is the least that i can do
    you know i'm bad at calling you
    the best way i can accept
    the lonely words i miss you
    i'll say it but i'm sure you knew
    you're what i look most forward to
    coming back to where i've been
    i'll just leave it at this
    to me that means a lot to me cause thats whats happening right now and i hope everything will turn out great for both of us in the end.

    General Commenti think this song basically means that he goes to her at the west coast (?) for like a holiday and then when he has to go back home, he misses her so much although he never really tell her that probably cause he's busy or something and that maybe someday he'll move near her so that they can be together.

    General CommentAw such a cute song... I really love it is so cute and true. It reflects the sensation of when you are to afraid to tell a person what you feel even if that person already knows.
    Writing songs about them, thinking constantly.
    He is writing to a girl that lives in the west coast and ooh god is just soo sweet to put it into words. I love this song
