"Leaving California" as written by and P J Harvey John Parish....
California
Leaving
California
California
Leaving
California

No one but me is walking
Under palms that give no shade
I'm leaving you today

California
Leave me
California
Leave
California
Leave Me
California

How cruel was I to think that
I could you change
Oh give me some shade
Oh England come soon
How could I've believed that I could live and breathe in you
Ooh

California
Killed me
California
California
Killed me
California

I think it's time to leave
I think it's time to leave
I told no one I'd stay
I think it's time to leave
Ooh

    General CommentI love the lines:

    No one but me is walking
    And the palms that give no shade

    Very evocative song, reminds me of Bill Hick's comments about California being for lizards.

    Wonder is there any melodic connection to California Girls by the beach boys?
