California Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Feel it, the calm after the storm.
As still as I can be.
I'm finally all alone
until I fall asleep.

Did I escape or am I captured?
Trapped in a cage of rear view mirror eyes.
Triangles that look like faces.

This is what I get
for my revenge.
A hidden microphone,
an amber alert implanted
under my skin.
It's just in my head but
it takes me over.
It makes me forget why I'm on my way.
These four years feel like a hundred.

West-bound,
driving all alone to make sure that you know.
I've been running scared without you.
I drove all night to tell you.
In dreams I've seen your face with
another in my place.
I know it was another life but I never could forget you.
I never could forget you.

We set it up (we set it up)
like a house of cards in a hurricane.
We didn't think it would ever make sense.

He set us up (he set us up),
he knew just where to plant it.

It knocked me over,
it made me forget how I fell in love.
How much I really cared.

West-bound,
driving all alone to make sure that you know.
I've been running scared without you.
I drove all night to tell you.
In dreams I've seen your face with
another in my place.
I know it was another life but I never could forget you.
I never could forget you.

You'll see me there like a familiar stranger standing on the street.
I'll say a prayer, I'll introduce myself like it's the first time we'd ever meet.
In California, I'd learn that sometimes you have to run away.
In California, I'd find myself again.

West-bound,
driving all alone to make sure that you know.
I've been running scared without you.
I drove all night to tell you.
In dreams I've seen your face with
another in my place.
I know it was another life but I never could forget you.
