california lyrics – melissa etheridge

raised up on mid-western dreams
only a few shall get
what everyone shall need
i took my family’s burden
strapped it to my chest
a few hundred bucks,
and a kiss for luck
and i pointed my dreams west

to california
come rescue me
california
i am almost free

i kept on driving to the setting sun
galaxies of angels
welcome everyone
i took my heart out of its box
attached it to my sleeve
well, i will be here every night
because that’s what i believe

in california
come rescue me
california
i am almost free

i will find my love
i will know my peace
i will seek my truth
i am almost free
i am almost free…

i am almost free
i am almost free
i am almost free

in california
i am almost free
in california
i am almost free
(rescue me)
california
i am almost free
