BRIDGE: Sitting here a summerday,
wishing things will go my way.
hoping all the time i might,
figure out my dreams by night.

V1. As i sit here starring in the wall,
I picture only maps in my mind.
Dreaming of places i've never gone;
But i know i will find.

V2. One day i'll be a movie star,
That is, if i kick it right.
Dreams that seem so far;
I'm holding to the light...

CHORUS: Seeing the transparency they bring,
These california dreams.
Fakeness in all reality,
They're testing my ability.
If i make my choices right;
I'm wishin' the right star...
These california dreams won't be so far.

V3. I know you wonder why i think
I'll be the next in line.
You have to want it this much...
And need it so much more.

V4. Fighting it cant be too easy,
Loving it won't be that hard.
I need this dream so very badly;



V5.And i sit here smiling as
Someone else is living out my dreams,
That one day i'll achieve...
No matter what you tell me!,
But i'm just california dreamin'.

CHORUS (change last line to "These california dreams don't seem that far")
