"California" as written by and Ryan Mendez Ryan Key....
Tell me secrets, 'cause I know you're scared
And you dream of California, tonight
If you wait up, I could meet you there
And we could be in California tonight

When everything that I can see
Goes dark I feel you here with me
And I, I'm holding on to you
When shadows try to swallow me, you're the
Only light I'll ever need
And I, I'm holding on to you

Tell me all this was another life
And what it's like in California, tonight
Where the sun sets in a perfect sky
I wanna be in California tonight

When everything that I can see
Goes dark I feel you here with me
And I, I'm holding on to you
When shadows try to swallow me
You're the only light I'll ever need
And I, I'm holding on to you

Salt in the air, blood in my veins
No more black clouds, just colorful days
Salt in the air, blood in my veins
No more black clouds, just colorful days

When everything that I can see
Goes dark I feel you here with me
And I, I'm holding on to you
When shadows try to swallow me
You're the only light I'll ever need
And I, I'm holding on to you

Tell me secrets, 'cause I know you're scared
And you dream of California, tonight

    My InterpretationI want to believe this isn't about California. That "California" was like a form of heaven and when he sleeps, him and his wife are together in his dreams. Or maybe a close friend that died. However, I'm pretty sure this is just about being in the state of California with his wife.
