I was just a boy in love
And you were a girl head over heels
And all those days never lasted long enough
And all those nights were filled with cigarettes and sex appeal

Take my hands
And we can never come back to this town
Where it's always winter
And your so-called friends always bring you down

Because you don't belong here
You were born to be so much more than this
Don't waste another day
In a town that doesn't know you exist

Let's run away to California
Nothing to lose but a string on a guitar
Nothing to hold us back now
We've got a trip to take

Let's live the dream in California
And make them all proud that we got this far
There's nothing to head back to
So head for the golden state

Let's run away to California
Where everybody was born to be a star

I was just a boy with a crush
And you were a girl who felt the same
And we were just a couple of kids
In a city that would never know our name

And I know it's hard to just pack your things and say goodbye
When this is all you've ever known
But I swear it's brighter on the other side
So please come with me, and let's start a brand new life
Move to California, and everything's gonna be alright

Let's run away to California
Nothing to lose but a string on a guitar
Nothing to hold us back now
We've got a trip to take

Let's live the dream in California
And make them all proud that we got this far
There's nothing to head back to
So head for the golden state

(Whoa, California)

I was just a boy in love
And you were a girl head over heels
