City And Colour The Golden State Lyrics

Why’s everyone still singing about California?

Haven’t we heard enough about the Golden State?

I guess if you like sandy beaches and blue ocean water

There’s just something about it, to which I cannot relate

I need to see the leaves change and the snowflakes falling

I need to hear the colder wind whistling through the winter pines

Why’s everyone still singing about California?

Haven’t we heard enough about the Golden State?

People still follow their dreams to sweet California

And from time to time I’ll pass on by, but I will never stay

Sure there are beautiful people, in the city of lost angels

They’re living like they’re kings and queens, from some royal age

But fortune and fame won’t save you, when California

Is wiped out by the ring of fire or a great earthquake

Why’s everyone still singing about California?

Haven’t we heard enough about the Golden State?

People still follow their dreams to sweet California

And from time to time I’ll pass on by, but I will never stay

No, I will never stay

Never stay

Never stay
