"California" as written by and John Parker Compton....
I miss the way you sing low
So can't I hear your voice over
The radio in my car
But you knew every word they sang
You knew you just the right thing to say when the
Distance rips us farther and farther and farther away
I'll see you soon

If you're coming back this way again
Come back from California
All of us here in Florida
Are starved for your attention
We're starved for your attention
Come back from California
All of us here in Florida
Are starved for your attention
Are starved for your attention

Maybe I fell too fast
Maybe I pushed you away
Now you're gone and I'm afraid
That you're never coming back this away again

I'll see you soon
If you'll come back here
I'll see you soon
Just say that you want to see me too

Come back from California
All of us here in Florida
Are starved for your attention
Are starve for your attention
Come back from California
All of us here in Florida
Are starved for your attention
Are starved for your attention

You know I won't mind if you
Monopolize all my time
I won't say a thing at all
I won't say a word no

So come back from California
Come back from California

    General Commentthe end of this song puts me in total air guitar assault mode.

    i somewhat relate to this song right now because i have someone in another state (not quite california) and i'm longing to have her back and have her attention.

    General CommentThis is my reserved sad song.. y'know, the song you listen to when you're feeling particularly sad. My boyfriend lives about an hour away, which isn't as bad as California, but when you're sad about something, logic doesn't ever come into play. This song always makes me feel a little better.
