"California" as written by and John Parker Compton....
Scared as hell and on my own
Without so much as a telephone
Questioning every single choice I have made
I hang my clothes and I make my bed
Recall a phrase that my father always said
As I embark on this winding, one man parade
He said, "Waters never part until you get your feet wet."
It was heavy on my heart as I stood on the beach at sunset
In every other place I feel I'm lost and wandering around
But California's where I'm found
I hang my last picture on the wall
As all the rest have begun to fall
I hope this move doesn't prove to be a mistake
As hours pass I feel reassured
My mind is eased but its doubt is far from cured
At least I know that these steps are all mine to make
And waters never part until you get your feet wet
It was heavy on my heart as I stood on the beach at sunset
In every other place I feel I'm lost and wandering around
Now all my time has been spent on getting through
Now my poor mind has been bent on getting to
That place where sea reflects sky
A wondrous blue
Somehow I know that's where my dreams will come true
But waters never part until you get your feet wet
It was heavy on my heart as I stood on the beach at sunset
In every other place I feel I'm lost and wandering around
But California's where I'm found
where I'm found
