City And Colour – The Golden State lyrics

[Verse:]

Why's everyone still singing about California?
Haven't we heard enough about the Golden State?
I guess if you like sandy beaches and blue ocean water
There's something about it, to which I cannot relate
I need to see the leaves change and the snowflakes falling
I need to hear the call, the wind whistling through the winter pines

[Chorus:]

Why's everyone still singing about California?
Haven't we heard enough about the Golden State?
And people still follow them dreams to sweet California
And from time to time I pass on by, but I will never stay

[Verse:]

Sure there are beautiful people, in the city of lost angels
They're living like they're kings and queens, from some royal age
But fortune and fame won't save you, when California
Is wiped out by the ring of fire or a great earthquake

[Chorus:]

Why's everyone still singing about California?
Haven't we heard enough about the Golden State?
And people still follow them dreams to sweet California
And from time to time I pass on by, but I will never stay
No, I will never stay

Never stay x2

    Dallas Green is simply asking why everyone would want to be mainstream and go to California? There is nothing special about it. Yes, it's sunny and there's the ocean, but Dallas Green would rather live in Toronto where he can see all four seasons. Going to California for fame is pointless because one day it's not going to be there anymore. One day "The Golden State" is gonna be gone and your fame won't matter anymore.
