California
Music and lyrics by Don Davis
2011 Don Davis

[Intro]
She's leaving for California.
Leaving for California in June.
She's leaving for the land she loves,
To be with the man she promised to

[Verse 1]
She tells me she loves the mountains.
And how she's never far from the beach
But she never tells me how
She's gonna make it through the week

She tells me she likes the weather
And the feeling of the sand beneath her feet
But she never tells me that
The man she loves makes her feel complete

[Chorus]
All I know is that
Every time
I try to think of life without her
I feel like I'm going under, and
Every time
I see her walk away
My world turns dark and gray

I don't know what to do...

[Verse 2]
Should I tell her that I want her?
Want her to stay here with me?
And that I feel the time we spend
Is the most precious thing to me

If asked her to be my lady
Be mine and share her life with me
Could I give her what she needs?
Could I help to make her life complete?

I don't know what to do...

[Chorus]
All I know is that
Every time
I try to think of life without her
I feel like I'm going under, and
Every time
I see her walk away
My world just fades to gray

Even though
I say I'll be ok
It won't turn out that way
Cause when she leaves
And heads out to LA
She'll take my heart away.

[Coda]
She's leaving for California.
Leaving for California in June.
She's leaving for the land she loves...
Leaving much too soon.
