The girls in California, they all look the same to me
The way they take for granted living by the sea
They can be your best friends if you don't expect too much
The girls in California, well they all believe in love

I met this girl named Liz in a bar just south of here
She moved to New York City so that she could disappear
I told her she was beautiful and she thanked me for the words
I will never understand just how he got through to her

She moves in such a way
That people fall in love with her every single day
I can't say I'm immune, though I've been trying to find you
And I know she's out there somewhere today

The woman down the street from me, she's got this daughter 20 years
With a Sunkist smile that the winter won't go near
Her hips could shake a mountain and her lips could start a fire
And just like Nabokov, all these men walk by and as they do, they conspire

She moves in such a way
That people fall in love with her every single day
I can't say I'm immune, though I've been trying to cut through
All this lust and all this love in me

Then there's this girl from Greenwich, she stopped me in my tracks
She tells me when I'm wrong and she always makes me laugh
And of all the pretty women that I see everyday
She's the only who moves in such a way

She moves in such a way
That I still fall in love with her every single day
I can't say I'm immune, though I've been trying to show you
That you could have my heart, you could take my heart today
Darlin' you could have my heart, you could just take my heart away
Then she comes and she lifts me up every single day

    General Commentin this song kellogg is describing how vulnerable he is to these girls and they don't even notice. Also, the song is talking about how superficial he's been "I've been trying to cut through all this lust"..."The girls in California, they all look the same to me"
