If I could keep you here for one more day
I think I'd tell you everything I ever meant to say
But I won't hold you down, no
I gotta go maybe I'll see you around, maybe no

Cause I'm leaving now to head out to California
Where I can see the sun, maybe be the one to shine
I'm gonna take my time, you know that I've never seen the Grand Canyon
And anyway, I just wanna say goodbye

I'm driving home tonight
I need to see my city lights shining through
Bright white against the blue of my city sky, and you

Cause I'm leaving now to head out to California
Where I can see the sun, maybe be the one to shine
I'm gonna take my time, you know that I've never seen the Grand Canyon
And anyway, I just wanna say goodbye

California
California, I'm coming home
California

Now if I could say, just one more thing
Cause I feel this need to tell you everything that's on my mind
I forgive, forget, and I'm sorry for that time that I was so wrong
But you know I never belonged in the first place
Maybe I'll find my space in California

In California
In California
I'm gonna be the one to shine
