"California King Bed" as written by Robyn Fenty, Jermaine Jackson, Andrew Harr, Priscilla Renea and Alex Delicata....
Chest to chest
Nose to nose
Palm to palm
We were always just that close
Wrist to wrist
Toe to toe
Lips that felt just like the inside of a rose
So how come when I reach out my finger
It feels like more than distance between us

In this California king bed
We're ten thousand miles apart
I'll be California wishing on these stars
For you're heart on me
My California king

Eye to eye
Cheek to cheek
Side by side
You were sleeping next to me
Arm in arm
Dusk to dawn
With the curtains drawn
And a little last night on these sheets
So how come when I reach out my finger
It seems like more than distance between us

In this California king bed
We're ten thousand miles apart
I'll be California wishing on these stars
For you're heart on me
My California king

Just when I felt like giving up on us
You turned around and gave me one last touch
That made everything feel better
And even then my eyes got wetter
So confused wanna ask you if you love me
But I don't wanna seem so weak
Maybe I've been California dreaming

In this California king bed
We're ten thousand miles apart
I'll be California wishing on these stars
For you're heart on me
My California king
My California king

In this California king bed
We're ten thousand miles apart
I'll be California wishing on these stars
For you're heart on me
My California king

    My Interpretationi believe that this song is a bout distance emotionally ie skinn to skin cheek to cheek etc there a couple none the less, and they still are intimate with each other last night on these sheets to me its the womens thoughts or insurcuritys so to speak, they lay side by side but yet she still dosent feel close like either her thoughts are somewhere else maybe she dosent love him like she use to or she believes his mind is somwhere else and he dosent love her any more and she is confused why these feeling apply in her mind so how come when i reach out my finger there seems like more than distance between us ... so how come

    My InterpretationThe girl feels that her relationship with her lover/BF has become just physical and mentally they drift away from each other. She's confused about their relationship and if he truly loves her, but it accures to her that she may be dreaming.

    My Interpretationi absolutely adore this song.

    this song hits really hard to home for me with my current situation. i see this song being that there are two people who are "seeing" eachother, but one of them doesn't know what they are... they are kind of just, "floating" so to speak. that is why there is "distance" between them because he's right there laying beside of her, but she still feels some kind of barrier between him and her.

    love it<3

    General CommentGreat song. So different from a lot of her other songs. It's so smooth & sexy.
    I think the song is (like a lot of people said) talking about the emotional distance between two lovers although they are basically entwined.
    5 stars.
