Lose yourself into where the mountainside meets the Pacific Highway.
And I'll wait for you there, listening to the water
as it throws itself on the ocean sand
and holds me, suspended in this moment
where the cars crawl by on the road ahead,
looking like a movie set.
I feel like I'm alive again.
But I need something more than elements to keep me here.
Because you know when the sun goes down
and the desert cold surrounds me I will be on my way again
with my loneliness hanging from my neck like it's a bayonet
sticking out to put to test if everything I encounter is worth it
To forget what she means to you.
Oh you did the best that you could do, and now she is gone.
Oh but don't lose sight of all the love you have.
Because California just can't love you back
like the people in the Meadowlands.
