Sophie B. Hawkins California Here I Come Lyrics

Whoah, you

Poor you

Playing so long but you’re still not grooving

I see you running but I see you ain’t moving

And me

Pitiful me

I sleep with both eyes open but I’m just not seeing

The forest, let alone the trees

California, here I come

Open up your golden arms

I had enough of the New York City slums

My brother, he went before me

My God, watch over me

California, here I come

Could we stop (oh)

Obsessing?

There’s food on the table, let’s count our blessings

How come we wanna be messing

Messing around

With the wild, wild west

Must be a better life than this

How come

Some people got it all

Some people got none

I been banging my head against

The writing on the wall

But now

I just wanna have fun

California, here I come

Open up your golden arms

I had enough of the New York City slums

My brother, he went before me

My God, watch over me

California, I’ll be there

Let me fall into your hair

I won’t be guilty for my New York City care

My sister, come along with me

Our God is offering our share

California, I’ll be there

Our father, who is in Heaven

Hallowed be your name

Your kingdom come, your will be done

On Earth as it is in Heaven

Give me this my daily bread

And forgive me my trespasses

As I forgive those others

Lead me not into temptation

And deliver me from evil

Yeah

California, I’ll be there

I won’t be guilty for my New York City care

My brother, he went before me

My God, watch over me

California, California, please

My sister, come along with me

Our God is offering

Our share
