"I Hate California" as written by Matthew L Shafer and Brett James....
I think I hate California
And the hotels are free
I’m drinking wine from a mug
And no one will see
We’re swapping stories on the phone
This and you in your time zone
I’m losing sleep
And I’m waiting for a bed of my own

I think I hate California
I hate California

So blind
Yeah, we’re blind
We stumble to the dark
And we lie
Yeah, we lie
But we’re dark in a short

So if you want love
To set you free
Drop by tonight
If nothings ventured
Nothings gained
All is right

I think I hate California
I hate California
I think I hate California
I hate California

Oooh ooh ooh
Oooh ooh ooh

A wedding ring


In a hotel sink
I’m on the brink
I know it’s hopeless
But I’m so focused
I think

And somehow
I’d ride alone
On a stairway case
If I could
If I could
If I finish
You know it’s understood

That we hate California
We hate California
You know we hate California
We hate California

And I
Oh I
I’m so sorry now
I’m so sorry now
Oh, I’m so sorry now
Oh yeah
Oooh ooh ooh
Oooh ooh ooh
Oooh ooh ooh
Oooh ooh ooh

ooh

    General CommentHe hates California because it is keeping him away from the one that he loves. He is here and she is there. He wants to be with her, but has to focus on his career in a state that he doesn't belong to and doesn't want to be in. He is stuck in hotel rooms while trying to make his music. They are blind and stumble in the dark because they have never done long-distance before and it is hard and scary and they don't know what they are doing. They hate California because it is keeping them apart.
