PJ Harvey & John Parish – Leaving California lyrics

California, leaving California
California, leaving California

No one but me is walking
Under palms that give no shade
I'm leaving you today

California leave me, California
California leave me, California

How cruel was I to think that I could make you change?
Oh give me some shade, oh England come soon
How could I have believed that I could live and breathe in you?

California killed me, California
California killed me, California

I think it's time to leave
I think it's time to leave
I told no one I'd stay
I think it's time to leave
