On the road to nowhere, every day was just the same
So I took my belongings, and hitchhiked no more to blame
To California, in the warm Summer of love
All my life I been searching
All my life I been searching

I came to a crossroad, where a stranger gazed and spoke
He was looking kinda peculiar,
In a purple coloured cloak
He wore a token, never seen before
He said: All my life I been searching
All my life I been searching

Sunset in Southern California
And the morning seems so far so far away
Sunset in Southern California
In the distance there's the light of San Diego

I came to his temple at noon the second day
It was a lot of mumbling, in the shadows did they pray
Feeling kind of dizzy, a gong struck and people chanted
All my life I been searching
All my life I been searching

[Chorus]

Then a kind of leader, appeared in fume and smoke
All dressed in silver,
An authoritarian bloke
He turned around and talked to me
With a demagogic voice
All my life I been searching
All my life I been searching

[Chorus]

In the distance there's the light of San Diego [x3]
