Spent my days with a lover unkind,
Smoked my stuff and drank all my wine.
Made up my mind to make a new start,
Going to California with an aching in my heart.
Someone told me theres folks out there
With love in their eyes and flowers in their hair.
Took my chances on a big jet plane,
Never let them tell you that they're all the same.
The sea was red and the sky was grey,
Wondered how tomorrow could ever follow today.
The mountains and the canyons started to tremble and shake
As the children of the sun began to awake.
Seems that the wrath of the gods
Got a punch on the nose and it started to flow;
I think I might be sinking.
Throw me a line if I reach it in time
I'll meet you up there where the path
Runs straight and high.
I'll be a queen I'll find a king;
We'll play guitars and cry and sing.
La la la la
Ride a white mare in the footsteps of dawn
Tryin to find a lover whos never, never, never been born.
Standing on a hill in my mountain of dreams,
Telling myself its not as hard as it seems.
