I bought a new life for $1.25,
and some sunglasses too
It isn't easy growing up here
But don't take my advice;
I'm not the best with words
And I can't read minds anymore

The traffic in this town is really pissing me off
The people here don't ever like to sing in their cars
They just turn their radios up to drown out their thoughts

California sunshine and Tennessee rain
I'm an East Coast kid with a West Coast way
And I don't mind the weather,
but I hate the way it has to change
Making out to mixtapes with Limbeck, Katrina and The Waves
Did I mention how I used to hate that song?
Before I met that girl that was in love with The Beatles

California girls wear their sunglasses at night
Turns outs that Tom was right:
All the vampires hangout on Ventura Boulevard
Uptown girls like to go down on the boys
That pretend they don't listen to the radio
The people inside hate the people outside
And the people outside are too drunk to care
Yeah, the people outside are too drunk to care

California sunshine and Tennessee rain
I'm an East Coast kid with a West Coast way
And I don't mind the weather,
but I hate the way it has to change
Making out to mixtapes with Limbeck, Katrina and The Waves
Did I mention how I used to hate that song?
Before I met that girl that was in love with The Beatles

I kinda like it when you don't remember my name
I'm just another face to forget
Hey what time did you say that the end is coming?
I'm not sure if I'm ready yet

California sunshine and Tennessee rain
I'm an East Coast kid with a West Coast way
And I don't mind the weather,
but I hate the way it has to change
Making out to mixtapes with Limbeck, Katrina and The Waves
Did I mention how I used to hate that song?
Before I met that girl that was in love with The Beatles

And did I mention that sometimes I'm not right?
