lyrics

NOT SO CALIFORNIA
(Richards)

I wish it would rain
Just for today
'Cause these aren’t sunny things I have to say
12-hour shifts, praying for tips
Tell me, is this how you pictured it?

Maybe they’re right – and we were wrong
When they said, “You’re never gonna make it in that town”
Maybe it’s time we made the call
Maybe we’re not so California after all

We came with a plan
We’d give it a year
Now it’s been three and no one knows we’re here
Right here with you is where I belong
And if you just said the word – we’d be gone

Maybe they’re right – and we were wrong
Or maybe we’ve been in the sun too long
There were some times when it was a ball
But maybe we’re not so California after all

All of these dreams
Beneath the stars
Well, I guess they never needed ours

Maybe we’re wrong – and they were right
We could slip back under cover of the night
And if they ask us what went wrong
Wrong
Wrong

Tell ‘em you’re not so California
Tell ‘em you’re not so California
We’ll tell ‘em we’re not so California after all

Maybe we’re not so California
After all
