California is a great big nation of one
They never knew what they wanted until it was already gone
What do they do with the light
In the morning when they wake up alone?

They just go home
They just go home

You're the nicest, nicest boy I've ever met
And then I think about you, then I think about you again and again
Why don't we just sit and stare and do nothing?
Nothing at all for a while, I like the way you smile

I could be your state and I could be your nation
It doesn't get better than home, now does it?
Doesn't get better than home, now does it?
I could be your welcome, I could be your greeter
I could be sweet and I could be sweeter
I want to be where your heart is home

I want to see you with the light in the morning
There's never been such a beautiful warning to me, to me
Why don't we just sit and stare and do nothing?
Nothing at all for a while, I like the way you smile

    General Comment"I want to be where your heart is home..." That is one of the greatest statements ever made. Why? Because... Isn't that the ideal relationship? The kind of relationship where all you need is eachother and no matter where you go, your home is where your heart is. That is lovely. And the point is personified throughout the song. "I can be your state and I can be your nation." True love is your identity and the only thing you ever need to feel at home. Thank you again Zooey!
