california sunrise
take the sleep from under our california eyes
sitting by the oceanside
waiting for the tide to take us home
to take us all home

she waits for the summer to find a lover
she looks for him underneath the sand
but the air is getting colder
the summer's getting older
you need to make up your mind

i've been sleeping far too long hibernating from your love
i need some summer sun to come and wake me up
let me sink you're hell to swim
where our love ends my end begins
california sunrise come on and wake me up

trying to decide are you really worth my time
i've been playing this game so long
but the cold is coming through
there's nothing left to do
how am i going to prove myself to you

    General CommentIsn't this song a remake??? If it is, why can't I find the original? Or is the chorus sampled from somewhere? Why does it sound so familiar???
