Melissa Etheridge – Miss California lyrics

Miss California what did I do wrong
It seems I've loved you
For just a little too long
You've gone and left me
For some preacher's way
Now you act like you never knew me
And you can't hear a word I say

Miss California did I get in your way
Did the neighbors warn you
What would happen some day
Like a love like mine
Was never good anyway
They said think about your reputation now
Before you get carried away

Don't you know what's good for me can be good for you
Don't you know what's good for me can be good for you
Don't you know what is good for you
Can be good for me too
Don't you know what's good for me can be good for you

Miss California was I a little too proud
I'm standing in the street now
And I'm screaming out loud
You try to shove me in your closet
With your skulls and your bones
I can be who I am you see
If I want to do it all alone

Yeah yeah yeah

Don't you know what's good for me can be good for you
Don't you know what is good for you
Can be good for me too
Don't you know what's good for me can be good for you

Your sweet seduction led me far from home
Your self-destruction gives me sticks and stones
Your propositions make me feel so cold
When the hand that's trying to hold me down
Is the one I'm trying to hold
I know the hand that's trying to hold me down
Is the one I'm trying to hold
I said the hand that's trying to force me back
Is the one that won't let me go

Miss California
Yeah yeah yeah
Miss California
Yeah yeah yeah
Miss California
Yeah yeah yeah
Miss California
Yeah yeah yeah

Ah huh

Yeah
You know what is good for me
