American Aquarium – California lyrics
[Verse 1]
Two thousand, seven hundred ninety-four miles from here to L. A
Two hundred forty-three gallons of gas stretched over two days
Two suitcases of clothes, a guitar, and some shoes for ballet
Two lovers who saw a normal life and drove the other way

[Chorus]
California, California
We've waited on you, please don't let us down
California, California
We're bankin' on you this time around

[Verse 2]
Two thirty in the morning and he's counting the tips in the jar
Two stings of the six he's gotta fix on his trusty guitar
Two blocks down the street she's there to meet him and she brought the car
Too bad that she's the only on who knows that he's a rock star

[Chorus]
California, California
We've waited on you, please don't let us down
California, California
We're bankin' on you this time around

[Verse 3]
Two auditions down, one to go, then she's headed to work
To a diner where she waits for her big break off Twenty-Second and Third
Today might be the day she gets the news that she's never heard
And can finally go home to a man that's gonna be proud of her

[Chorus]
California, California
We've waited on you, please don't let us down
California, California
We're bankin' on you this time around

[Outro]
Two thousand, seven hundred ninety-four miles from here to L. A
Two lovers who saw a normal life and drove the other way
