Hotels and cigarettes
And empty bars where I just sit
And contemplate the things that I can't know

And all I ask of you are honest words
Simple truths
A place to lay my head when I get lost

Nothing here is right
Guess I'll shut my eyes

Come to California
'Cause I've been lonely for you
We can stay up all night just to watch the sunrise
Come to California
Nothing's right without you and even in the daylight
Well I can't see the sky

I watch the waves disappear beneath the boardwalk
Then I blink my eyes
Stare farther down the beach
I'll get drunk this time on moons far and wide
In my defense I'd like to say at least it's always sweet

Nothing here is tight
Guess I'll shut my eyes

Come to California
'Cause I've been lonely for you
We can stay up all night just to watch the sunrise
Come to California
Nothing's right without you and even in the daylight
Well I can't see the sky

And I don't know if I believe I'm everything I should be
If I'd never been for you

Love, I am drowning in this change
It's washing everything I know and am confident with
Ah

Come to California
'Cause I've been lonely for you
We can stay up all night just to watch the sunrise
Come to California
Nothing's right without you and even in the daylight
Well I can't see the sky
I can't see the sky

Come to California 'cause I've been lonely for you
(I can't see the sky)
We can stay up all night just to watch the sunrise
(Lord I can't see the sky)
Come to California
Nothing's right without you and even in the daylight
(I can't see it)
(I can't see it)
Well I can't see the sky
(I can't see it)

    Lyric Correction"I'll get drunk this time on moons far and wide
    In my defense I'd like to say at least it's always sweet"

    Should be:

    "I'll get drunk thin time on Boons Farm wine
    In my defense, I'd like to say at least it's always sweet"
