All of these things I wanted for you
You set out to find them and I hope that you do
But all that I hope for you
Is all that I fear

The thought of you leaving plays out in my head
Will you really do it or turn back instead
When you realize
That all that you love is right here

You're fighting the feeling
And the voice that keeps calling for you
What will it be
Me or California

Your eyes are not laughing I know it's no joke
You've lost something in you since the last time we spoke
It's the thing I held onto
The thing that I loved you for

And now that I see it as it falls from your eyes
I just let it drop I know now I realize
That it is not mine
You are not mine anymore

And you say to me
Don't tell me I didn't warn you
Winter just isn't me
And I'm leaving for California

You have to go you have to go
I hear it in your voice
Listen as it echoes
You have to go you have to go
I hear it in your voice
Listen as it echoes
Stop telling me
Start walking away

And did you expect me to curl up and die
While you turned a promise into a lie
Did it surprise you
How easily I let you go

It just wasn't meant it must have been fate
You realized but a second too late
That life without me
Was a life you just didn't want to know

Then the words that I wished for
Darling, I'm sending for you
So get your ass on a plane
And I'll see you in California

The words that I wished for
Darling, I'm sending for you
So get your ass on a plane
And I'll see you in California
