On the way to California
And I don't mean California literally
I was thinking, it's so comforting, quiet

You read so softly over my head
It's late but I'm maintaining interest in the things that you say
I could listen to you speak all day

In the silence, dripping wet with kisses running down my lips
Could be just a good friend
Who knows at this point anyway?

There's just something about the way you surrender your eyes
Without this barrier of bodies
We'd already be inside

Like two children at first glance
We're building castles in the sand
It is so delicately dreamt of, this immediate intimacy

On the way to California and I don't mean California literally
I was thinking, I was thinking, I'm not dreaming
I'm not dreaming, I'm not dreaming, not this time anyway

I've got a feeling buried deep down inside of me
I've got a feeling buried deep down
And who knows what it means to have a feeling buried so deep down

But I've never felt quite so open for love
I've never felt quite so open before
And maybe my imagination runs away with me

You know I don't mind
You know I don't mind
You know I don't mind at all, oh no at all

And if you should take me, I'd let you break my heart, oh no
And if you should take me, I'd let you break my heart
Oh my heart, oh my heart

    General Commenton the way to california
    and I don't mean california literally
    I was thinking, it's so comforting quiet


    you read so softly over my head
    it's late but i'm maintaining interest in the things that you say
    I could listen to you speak all day


    in the silence dripping wet with
    kisses running down my lips
    could be just a good friend
    who knows at this point anyway

    there's just something about the way you surrender your eyes
    without this barrier of bodies, we'd already be inside


    Like two children at first glance
    we're building castles in the sand
    It's so delicately dreamt of
    this immediate intimacy

    on the way to California
    and I don't mean california literally
    I was thinking, I was thinking I'm not dreaming
    I'm not dreaming
    I'm not dreaming
    not this time anyway


    I've got a feeling buried deep down inside of me
    I've got a feeling buried deep down and
    who knows what it means to have a feeling
    buried so deep down

    But i never felt quite so open for love
    I've never felt quite so open before and
    maybe my imagination runs away with me...


    You know I don't mind...
    you know I don't mind...
    you know, I don't mind...at all
    Oh no
    at all

    and if you should take me, I'd let you break my heart
    oh, no
    and if you should take me, I'd let you break my heart
    oh oh
    my heart
    oh oh
    my heart
