"California's Lonely" as written by and Derek Gledhill Ryan Martin....
Wait
It's coming to me

I'm starting to see
So very clearly

Why I'm never happy
Because California's lonely

California's lonely
California's lonely just like the rest of the world

I always feel sick
So hard to breathe in
My head is spinning

Or am I the only
The one that's always lonely

California's lonely
California's lonely just like the rest of the world
California's lonely just like the rest of the world
California's lonely just like the rest of the world

I'm so cold
In this heat

I'm so alone
In these crowded streets

Cause no way I'm the only
One that's always lonely

California's lonely
California's lonely just like the rest of the world
California's lonely just like the rest of the world
California's lonely just like the rest of the world

    General Commentthis song is probably my favorite off ANXIETY.

    It's basically saying we're the same as any other state. we still feel alone. we're still unhappy.

    General CommentIt's true. The entire world is lonely. You can be surronded by thousands of people, yet you still feel nothing, you are still numb and you feel all alone. Sometimes it actually feels great to be reminded of loneliness...but not all the time.

    California...

    General CommentI found this floating on the net that tells a little about this song from the one who wrote it: People have a pre-conceived image and stereotype about
    California," Sean Danielsen marvels. "That it's this magical land of blond beauties
    and palm trees, where everyone's happy and having a great time and there's no
    depression or issues ... but this place is just as shitty as anywhere else,
    it's just a different environment." great song, i really like the drum beat and bass lines, soothing..good inspiration

    General CommentMorningLight:
    i'm so glad you found that. i always felt like i couldn't relate to this song. i wanted it to be about him referring to himself as "California" but the real meaning is just as good.


    Or am I the only..
    The one thats always lonely..

    Should be 'Why am I the only.. One that's always lonely"

    General CommentI mean "Rounded by the only one that's always lonely" or "Wound(past-tense 'wind') in by the only one that's always lonely"

    Can't tell =/
