California
Then we sail into the shallow sea
The wind that drags your heart down
Well, that's what took me where I need to be

Which is here, Alazzurra
Watching you cry like a baby
California
At the dawn you thought would never come
But it did
Like it always does

Whoa, oh, you know
And all I need to know is
There is no, yeah, there is no end
To love

I didn't call you
A risk can scare a thought away
Everyone's a star in our town
It's just your light gets dimmer if you have to stay

Can you imagine in a mirror
Watching yourself cry like a baby
California
The blood orange season brings you to your knees
I've seen for myself, there's no end to grief
That's how I know

Whoa, that's how I know
And why I need to know
If there is no, if there is no end
To love

Whoa, oh, you know
And all I need to know is
There is no, yeah, there is no end
To love

Whoa, oh, you know
And all I need to know is
There is no, yeah, there is no end
To love

Whoa, we come and go
With stolen days you don't get back
Stolen days are just enough

    I think this song is about someone coping with depression. There is a friend who comes to visit, to strengthen and give advice. The last paragraph is talking about days lost due to depression are never coming back. These stolen days are enough and don't spend even more time under depression.

    This is about a trip made to visit someone close, a friend that didn' t expect it to see who is coming to see him. The place is Malibu, most likely Zuma Beach. Notice of the visit had not being given to this person because words (not risks) can scare thoughts away. This person/ friend is in a sort of pain, maybe close to his physical and emotional end. The dawn that he thought would not come again, came as always does and his friend is there and tears too (crying like a baby). There is no end to love and. Stolen days are what is enough!
