    General CommentComfort versus the obligations of love

    The subject of the song goes to the church to seek moral support

    There is conflict in the subject of this song, internal conflict

    The individual in question might be homesick

    California Dreaming - transcendental meditation, wishful thinking

    My InterpretationI liked the general comment before mine. And since I believe, not sure, but think I have heard this song used a few times in reference or in Vietnam movies. So comfort vs. obligation of service. Homesick, yeah I'd say that would be right... not an opinion on the rightness of the war but certainly how being engaged in hell creates wishful thinking about being safe back home.
