dear california lyrics – vanessa carlton

“dear california”

as usual, i’m in a tricky predicament
weather in my thoughts, on the roof sneaking a cigarette
dear california, it’s been nice to know ya
tell me, will you miss me when i’m gone?

’cause he loves me as i leave, so i’m gonna go
and i’m not in companies when you feel it most
and you keep my memory, hope ya keep me close
would you love me as i leave?

this alchemy is making me suspicious
as if i slipped you some belladonna
that i crossed town to get, don’t you know?
yes, my grand friend checks it

oh he loves me as i leave, so i’m gonna go
and i’m not in companies when you feel it the most
and you keep my memory, hope ya keep me close
would you love me as i leave?

ever-changing as the sea, it’s my only hope
it’s just me and my pup in the open road
but your face is like a paper-cut to the heart
slip away while you sleep

it’s easy, it’s easier
than it seems
it’s easy, it’s easier
than it seems

just go, i’ll go, don’t cry
i don’t know, i don’t know, but you fly
(hey!)
paper-cut to the heart

oh he loves me as i leave, so i’m gonna go
and i’m not in companies when you feel it most
and you keep my memory, hope ya keep me close
would you love me as i leave?

ever-changing as the sea
would you love me as i leave?
dear california
would you love me as i leave?
dear california
would you love me as i leave?
dear california
would you love me as i leave?
dear california
