Chest to chest
Nose to nose
Palm to palm
We were always just that close

Wrist to wrist
Toe to toe
Lips that felt just like the inside of a rose

So how come when I reach out my finger
It feels like more than distance between us

In this California king bed
Were 10000 miles apart
I been California wishing on the stars
For your heart on me
My California king

Eye to eye
Cheek to cheek
Side by side
You were sleeping next to me
Arm in arm
Dusk to dawn
With the curtains drawn
And a little last night on these sheets

(Repeat Bridge + Chorus)

Just when I felt like giving up on us
You turned around and gave me one last touch
That made everything feel better
And even then my eyes got wetter
So confused when I asked ask you if you love me
But I don't wanna seem so weak
Maybe I've been California dreaming

(Repeat Chorus x2)

    California king bed is a huge bed. And the song says. In this California king bed, we're ten thousand miles apart. This could mean many different things. Could be failing relationship, could be that the man has shown some signs that he is falling out of love with the girl. Could be age difference, could be culture conflict, could be race difference or many other things that hinders those in a relationship to be happy. Charz!

I have been waitting to dance with him since the end of are frist dance because I dance with him at that dance to a really good song to. Well I think the message is that like every time that they try to be togethor it gets them apart all over again.

    This is about a girl who felt being drifted apart from her man. She seeing signs that they're relationship is falling apart and that they're about to break up. Maybe. But for me, ten thousand miles apart means not only the distance, it could also mean the feelings of both in a relationship that is failing or the age difference, or could be the culture or the race. Anything that can become the reason for those who are supposed to be in love to be apart.
