What happens if you put her up on a pedestal? Do you end up disappointed?


You're My California
(Winters, Sherman)

We all know places that really don't exist
That's a billion dollar business babe
We can't resist
Like a happy shiny Hollywood
Or a gritty Chinatown
I'm gonna drive my Silver Ghost up the coast
And surf my way back down

Are you real
Are you there
Do you breathe warm Pacific air
Does your heart beat strong
When you know you are where you belong
Are you real
Are you true
Or just my dream of you
In the cool desert night
You come alive
You're my California

I got pictures running through my head
I got images of a time and a place
While I'm lying in my bed
I see you and me under a big oak tree
On a day out in the park
There you'll stay in an ideal way
In a light that never goes dark
