Hem – Not California lyrics

(Dan Messe/Gary Maurer)

Who's the girl inside of the blue-screen light
The sun is just pouring out
And everything is out of sight

Turn around the room is just black and white
She's whispering
Na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na

And it's not true
And it's not fair
And it's not you
And it's not California here

Later on you're breaking the boxes down
There's nobody out tonight
Nobody's hanging 'round

So you take the drive
That used to be almost right
And now it's just empty lots around you
All these empty lots around you

And they don't know
What you won't dear
And they can't see
That it's not California here

Come a time when I may just walk away
The sun is just barely out
The sky is completely grey

But you're the one I want to be with today
Let them say
Na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na

And I'm not strong
And you're not rich
And we're not lost
Where we don't live

And it's not true
And it's not fair
And they're not us
And it's not California here

I'm the one who wants to be with you tonight
And I'm the one who wants to be the one you're with tonight
And I'm the one who wants to be the one you're with tonight
