california lyrics – darren hayes

i got a cottage with a sea view
i got a regular summer tan
i’ve been working up the courage to call you all year, ohhh
there is nothing i can say
there are no good words left anyway
besides people are cruel
and the world still moves without you, ohhh

welcome to my californian home
you don’t have to call me you can leave when you want
there’s a picture by my bed
there’s a light in your eyes
i don’t know
well i don’t know
why you still feel alone

and we were dying from the get go
i was dreaming but you never believed
i was trying to fit myself in the sp*ces between, ohhh
and you were kind and sometimes cruel
you said all the world’s love couldn’t satisfy you
and nothing could have hurt me as much as the truth
ohhh darling

welcome to my californian home
you don’t have to call me you can leave when you want
there’s a picture by my bed
there’s a light in your eyes
i don’t know
tell me ’cause i want to find out
do you still feel alone?

love is elusive when you search for it
don’t i know
happiness sometimes it just creeps in
don’t i know
i’m going crazy
i’ve been wondering
do you still feel alone?

i need to find
some kind of peace of mind
i need to find

i got a cottage with a sea view
i got a regular summer tan
i know that i deserve more
but i still want you

welcome to my californian home
you don’t have to call me you can leave when you want
there’s a picture by my bed
there’s a light in your eyes
i don’t know
tell me ’cause i want to find out
do you still feel?

welcome to my california
(i need to find)
even though i’m no good for you
(some kind of peace of mind)
there’s a part of me still waiting for you
(i need to find)
welcome to my happy ending
(i need to find)
even though it’s fun contending
(some kind of peace of mind)
i know
i know you can’t look back, you can never go back

welcome to my californian home
you can never go back
welcome to my californian home
i know
you can never go back
welcome to my californian home
i know
you can never go back
i know i need to find, do you still feel?

welcome to my californian home
(i need to find)
even though i’m no good for you
(some kind of peace of mind)
deep inside there’s a piece of me, there’s a piece of me
still waiting for you to come home
welcome to my californian home
(i need to find)
i know you can never look back, you can never look back again
(some kind of peace of mind)
but tell me ’cause i want to find out
do you still feel alone?
oh nooo
do you still feel alone?
oh nooo
