You make me want to
Unlearn everything I've learnt
To make myself better
To know you'd throw out my skateboard in the trash
I was just falling on my ass

This whole time trying to impress
All of those girls that I like less
Rip all your posters off your door
Pick up your suitcase from the floor

Come one last time to see my show
It is so hard to watch you go
Hope San Francisco's what you hoped

'Cause you've got two character flaws
That I can see
One: you don't know how great you are
And you are leaving me
But I know I'll get over that
Eventually
And I hope that California's what you need
Oh, I hope that California's what you need
And I'm glad I finally met a tumbleweed that I'd say yet
That I hope that California's what you need
You're a tumbleweed like me

She makes me want to
Curl up in my bed with her for days
Go vegan just to cook her eggs
And if I'm making a mistake
Believe it's already been made

And if she smokes a pack a day
Well, I guess even that's okay
I lost my asthma anyway
It would have loved her
It's a shame
That she lets me borrow all her books
And I catch her shooting me these looks
Wish I were smart enough for her

'Cause you've got two character flaws
That I can see
One: you don't know how great you are
And you are leaving me
But I know I'll get over that
Eventually
And I hope that California's what you need
Oh, I hope that California's what you need
And I'm glad I finally met a tumbleweed that I'd say yet
That I can't believe how much you mean to me
You're a tumbleweed like me

You make me want to
Unlearn everything I've learnt
To make myself better
To know you'd throw out my skateboard in the trash
Throw out my skateboard

Two character flaws
That I can see
When you don't know how great you are
And you are leaving me
But I know I'll get over that
Eventually
And I think New York just might be what I need
Oh, I hope New York just might be what I need
And I will not take you back
In fact I'll even help you pack
'Cause I think New York just might be what I need
I'm a tumbleweed
