"West Coast" as written by Jonathan Alexander Letcher Albright, Michael Craig Deming, Ryan Ackerman Downing, Jonathan David Owens, John Wesley Chester and Meagan Beth Plummer....
You're like an earthquake in L.A.
I'm shaking like a building falling.
The city breaks and falls away
Into shattered ground.
I used to stand tall but I'm
So used to lying down that
I don't stand for nothing now.

There's a train heading for L.A.
You're going away.
There's a train heading for L.A.
You're going away.

I've never been to California
I've never been to Memphis
But I couldn't let you go
No I couldn't let you go
Before I let you know
How much I meant this.
But I couldn't let you go
No I couldn't let you go
Before

You're like a sidewalk cracked
In the heat of the summer
With all the children jumping over
For good luck.
I don't know if it's the heat
Or the Tennessee air but
I want you next to me,
Though I know you won't be there.
So good luck.

There's a plane heading for L.A.
I'm giving chase.

I've never been to California
I've never been to Memphis
But I couldn't let you go
No I couldn't let you go
Before I let you know
How much I meant this.
But I couldn't let you go
No I couldn't let you go
Before

Tonight, the west coast ain't the best coast.
Tonight, tonight.

I've never been to California
I've never been to Memphis
But I couldn't let you go
No I couldn't let you go
Before I let you know
How much I meant this.
But I couldn't let you go
No I couldn't let you go
Before I let you know how much I meant this.
