"Oh California" as written by and Colin James Hay Michael C Georgiades....
Thought I'd never reach the water
Had to cross the desert and the great divide
Drinking only golden promises
With white lines in my eyes

Oh, sons and daughters
Followed all the signs to paradise
Believing only dreams and promises
With starlight in their eyes

[Chorus]
Oh, California
It's the one big love that you cannot end
Oh, California
It's not like before but we can still pretend

I was swimming in freezing water
I could hear the music from the other side
Looked up and I saw my father
And tears were in his eyes

[Chorus]

We all still live for Friday night
Old habits die hard when you get them right
There's a broken dream in every grain of sand
But it's as close as I can get to the promised land

Oh, California
I can see you now from the top of that hill
Oh, California
Though many have gone I have the memories still
Oh, California
I can hear the sound of the mission bell
Oh, California
We're one stone's throw from heaven

Thought I'd never reach the water
Had to cross the desert and the great divide
Drinking only golden promises
With white lines in my eyes

Oh, California
It's the one big love that you cannot end
Oh, California
Yeah I can't leave you now
Oh, California
