Lyrics


I’m going to California

turn the corner, turn the key

unlock the secret garden

and throw away the key

Don’t care how long it takes me

Don’t care what I have to do

I’d crawl across the great divide

just to get back to you

My God, how did it ever come to this

wallowing in my own shit

Some birds that sing

have to sacrifice their wings

Can you save me

save me from myself

I’m going to California

let the sun melt down my heart

There’ll be no fighting or crying

no more stumbling in the dark

and when all the king’s horses

and all the kings men

come to visit me in California

I’ll gladly let them in

My God, how did it ever come to this

wallowing in my own shit and

Some birds that sing

they had to sacrifice their wings

Can you save me

save me from myself

I’m going to California

turn the corner, turn the key

lock up the secret garden

and throw away the key
