Leaving California - Album Version

Lyricist: Martin Johnson/Chris Tompkins    Composer: Martin Johnson/Chris Tompkins

Well, I'm holding on and holding it all in
When it all goes wrong you just can't win
I can't stand another sunrise and I need a little rain
When the angels left the city and they won't be back again

Now I'm leaving California and I'll never look back
I took a picture for you, but I painted it black
One more dream around a run away track
Now this one last burned down, stuffed in the sky
Leaving California tonight

It's a broken dream in Santa Monica, crushing night
And that old movie well, it's got in my way tonight
And the lights are in the review and the stars up in the sky
And I don't know where I'm going, baby but it's time to say goodbye

Now I'm leaving California and I'll never look back
I took a picture for you, but I painted it black
One more dream around a run away track
Now this one last burned down, stuffed in the sky
Leaving California tonight
I've got a one ticket, I'm a rolling stone
I'm a goodnight kiss and I'm going, going home
Like wind, like fire, like rain
Know I'm never coming back again

‘cause I'm leaving California and I'll never look back
I took a picture for you, but I painted it black
One more dream around a run away track
Now this one last burned down, stuffed in the sky
Leaving California

Now I'm leaving California and I'll never look back
I took a picture for you, but I painted it black
One more dream around a run away track
Now this one last burned down, stuffed in the sky
Leaving California tonight
