"Left Coast Envy" as written by and Watts/gryskiewicz/golla/vasoli....
Today could be a different day
If the sky lifts up the haze
Above my front lawn
Or just another time I hold my tears
For another year
On my way back home

Can I sell this sunrise, in return for a sunset? Yeah
Can I just be here one more day, until my sunburn fades away?

I've asked a hundred times what's going on
But it went through one ear and out the other one
Why can't I take a palm tree home with me?
For the memory of you when I'm at home
I've been looking forward, months back
Vacation's everything we need

Can I sell this sunrise, in return for a sunset? Yeah
Can I just be here one more day, until my sunburn fades away?

I'm taking pictures
Of everything
To remind me of the place that's so perfect for me
And I'm taking pictures (taking pictures)
Of everything (of everything)
So go ahead and take this place away from me

Today could be another day
When the sky lifts up the haze
Off of my front lawn
Just another time I hold my tears
For another year
On my way back home

Can I sell this sunrise, in return for a sunset? Yeah
Can I just be here one more day, until my sunburn fades away?

Can I
Sell this sunrise, in return for a sunset? Yeah
Can I just be here one more day, until my sunburn fades away?

Can I sell this sunrise, in return for a sunset? Yeah
Can I just be here one more day, until my sunburn fades away?

Sunburn fades away

    General CommentThis song means a lot to me, because I have left coast envy. I've lived in Cali since I was four, and now I', 17 and I have to move to Arkansas. Everytime I hear this song its "Just another time I hold my tears", but make no mistake "*I* left *my* heart in Califorinia, and *I'm* coming back!!" But this is an awesome song, by an awesome band. I LOVE TSL!!

    General CommentDude, I've liked TSL for a while, but I've never heard this song. So tight they wrote a song about cali though, because I know that when I've to leave for college, I'm gonna miss this soooo much. And I'm deffinately coming back.
