lyrics

California, she could taste it in the word
Coming towards her, a blessing and a curse

Where’d the time go?
New York is so cold
When you go it alone
You learn to love, you learn to love...

Turn on the radio, tiny voices singing
Down on the street below, they called the cops again
If you want to be alone then why you keep calling?
Bridges and bicycles, watching herself go by in the windows

How sad is a sidewalk on a street where no one turns?
And when you add it all up, nothing lost is nothing learned
She cross the West horizon, and the East is said and done
One girl’s rising is another one’s setting sun

Where’d the time go?
To San Francisco
When you go it alone
You learn to love, you learn to love...

From the East, Orion’s leaping, and the West is sinking in
She says she should be sleeping at four o’clock in the morning
From the East, Orion’s leaping, and the West is sinking in
She says she should be sleeping
But she don’t, she don’t...
But you don't, you don't....

Second story window, de colores in her eyes
Far enough to be alone, close enough to stay alive

Where’d the time go?
To San Francisco
When you go it alone
You learn to love, you learn to love...

And birds sing out before the light
Soon she’ll be sleeping, soon she’ll be sleeping
And birds sing out before the light...
