"california" as written by Mason Musso, Trace Cyrus, Timothy Healy and Anthony Improgo....
If I strum chords, would you sing a song with me
If I leave town would you leave along with me
We can fly away to outer space
We can find a way to leave this place

We don't need a map and you can throw your phone away
We don't wanna hear the things we know they're gonna say
You don't trust yourself but girl trust in me
Don't look in the mirror the past you don't wanna see

What do you say we leave for California
If we drive all night we can make it by the morning
And no one has to know if we decide to go
What do you say we leave for California

If we leave our friends then we can be together
We can leave this town if only for the weather
I could drive and you could sleep
While the radio collides to the sound of our heartbeats

What do you say we leave for California
If we drive all night we can make it by the morning
And no one has to know if we decide to go
What do you say we leave for California

Hypnotized by the carbon monoxide
Would turning back be a good idea
Your cigarette after cigarette
Cannot help to calm your fear

But I'm still driving
Just keep sleeping
We'll keep moving
But I'm not leaving no I'm not leaving

What do you say we leave for California
If we drive all night we can make it by the morning
And no one has to know if we decide to go
What do you say we leave for California

What do you say we leave for California
If we drive all night we can make it by the morning
And no one has to know if we decide to go
What do you say we leave for California

What do you say we leave for California
If we drive all night we can make it by the morning
And no one has to know if we decide to go
What do you say we leave for California

    General CommentI think this song is about a couple who joke about going on a road trip to California, but then something changes and they actually go! They make it out of their town and get scared, turn around & go home...

    General Commenti love how he talks to her. i think it is about the reckless couple.
    "while the radio collides to the sound of our heartbeats" is one of my favorite lines ever.

    General Commentyeah its clearly about two people "HAVE" to run away together to be together

    if we leave our friends then we can be together
    We can leave this town if only for the weather
    I could drive and you could sleep
    While the radio collides to the sound of our heartbeats

    See.....and then THEY can be together ......

    I like this song allot people always seem to want to get in the middle of my relationships and I just stumbled on it and was like what especially for like 3 months now Ive been jokin on running away to Cali .....so this song rocks for me right now :~)

    and the second time they sing the refrain it's repeated a second time on their new album.
