The sun is rising up in New York
It's 3am on west coast time
When you took everything
And you left me far behind

Chorus:
There's no California
That's all I heard her say
Starin at this ocean
Feels so far away
I can see the sunset
All the skies are grey
She said she loves me
But not enough to stay

Since youve been gone this house feels empty
If you were lonely why'd you leave
Did I not give you everything you need?

Chorus
