lyrics

California -- you’re so far away
Why don’t we go to another state?

But I won’t travel anywhere
Without a ticket home
Though I know I’ll be okay
Wandering all alone through the grid
And torn up gray street lanes
‘Til I find the golden gate

I don’t know where I should call you at
Since we haven’t spoke in days
Your new number is longer than your weary back
Have you found a place to stay?

I’m out West again and it’s pouring rain
In the city I don’t know your face

I’ve got my father telling me
About the mountains and trees
At least they’ll hide my sunburnt cheeks
If this is what it feels like
To have nothing left at all
Then I’ll be gone for weeks

Don’t expect me to come back at all
The same person when I left
I’ve got months of dirty laundry
That I packed when we first kept

Those secrets, those secrets, those secrets
Those secrets, those secrets, those secrets
Our secrets, our secrets, our secrets
Our secrets, our secrets, our secrets

You know, you know, you know where it is I’m coming from
Your legs – they’ve grown since you’ve been on the run
From all the things that we left on the plane
Our bags they’re lighter but they’re covered with these stains.
These stains.

Louisiana – you’re not far away
Since I know where I’m gonna stay
