Say the things you say
And you're dreaming like you do
You know sometimes circles run around you
Hey, now, let's be honest
I really think it's true
You know sometimes we all bend the rules

You run with life
You've been around
You love to live to hate this town
And I hope and dream just like you do

Yeah, we've been here twice before
You want it to mean so much more
And I hope that everything goes through

She goes to California, oh
California's not so far
When I close my eyes and wonder where you are
And you wish upon a star
Two thousand miles doesn't seem so far

You play the games you play
You win, sometimes you lose
You know sometimes walls run into you
Now you got me thinking
And I really think it's true
That the sun shines sometimes just for you

You run with life
You've been around
You love to live to hate this town
And I hope and dream just like you do

Yeah, we've been here twice before
You want it to mean so much more
And I hope that everything goes through

She goes to California, oh
California's not so far
When I close my eyes and wonder where you are
And you wish upon a star
Two thousand miles doesn't seem so far
So far, so far, so far

    General Commenti absolutely love this song...*yeah we've been here twice before, you want it to mean so much more, and i hope that every thing goes through* this part of the song reminds me of me and the guy i was seeing for 10 months...we went through the same sort of *break-up* twice, and both times it was me who got hurt, in this case, i'm the one who wants it to mean so much more..he says that we are still friends..REALLY GOOD friends, and that he still has feelings for me, but it just doesn't show, i push my luck, and i know i'm going to end up loosing him. when i try to tell him how i feel, we end up just forgetting about it, and talking about other things, which is going to make it awkward between us every single time, anyways, i know i'm off topic now...but i just want to say this guy means the world to me, even though it may not seem like it all the time, i love you brandon...i'll shut up now.

    General CommentI actually like the lyrics to this song, especiall since I'm stuck an ocean away from my boyfriend, I totally feel, "California is not so far, when I close my eyes and wonder where you are"

    General CommentI went to high school with the lead singer. I remember on the last day of his senior day of high school, everyone went to his house for a BBQ and his band played. It was pretty sweet. I have rabies.
