Once I could have bought a small house
It had a lovely view I only saw it once, but
Once I didn't take a journey
I thought the time was wrong
but as it turned out, would have been all right

But California
Couldn't never be that great
No California
Perhaps I'll get there and it'll rain
In California
I better drop it cause it's too late
Yeah it's too late

Now I'm pushing myself on you
I should have done it when
The fruit was for the taking
But a past can make a future
And you could lead me on
A fallen apple waiting

For California
Could it ever be that great
In California
Perhaps I'll get there and it'll rain
In California
I better drop it cause it's too late
Is it too late

I made compromises
It felt like suicide
I didn't know I was alive
But now more than ever
I'm going

To California
Could it ever be that great
No California
Will I get there, will it rain
In California
I just don't care if it's too late
Is it too late

This time I'm coming home
