Fading west with you
Fading west with you
The sun goes down for the summer

Mirrored sky for the water
And I am fading westward too
Fading west with you
Life won't sing like I want it
The traffic pulls, modern sonnet
The traffic hums a dirty tune
Fading west with you

I'm headed back to the west coast where I'm from
I'm headed back to the left coast where I belong

California's calling me back home
Fading west with you
I keep my mind over matter
'Cause I've seen my hopes shatter
They told me lies I thought were true
Fading west with you
The sun goes down
We were already gone
Headed back to the west coast where I'm from
I'm headed back to the left coast where I belong
California's calling me back home

Fading west with you
When I'm alone
Feel like I'm caving in
When you leave me alone
I start to wonder where I might've been
Where I might've been
Headed back to the west coast where I'm from
I'm headed back to the left coast where I belong
California's calling me back home
California waters, won't you bring me home?

Fading west with you, yeah
Fading west with you
I'm fading west with you
