Lyrics

When I Get Back from California
1/27/2015 – 1/4/2016
Written by Jason Moon

Sometimes my songs make no sense at all.
So I thought that I would warn you.
When I get lost in my mind and such.
I’ll take a trip to California.

Sometimes I write songs about love.
Sometimes I write about nothing.
Sometimes I don’t write for months at a time.
Mostly when I’m in California.

I was on the road for such a long time.
I’ve been staying home a lot lately.
Now that it’s freezing up here in the north.
I’m on my way to California.

On the stationary a list by the phone.
Don’t forget to let the dog out.
If you get a chance, please water my plants.
Until I get back from California.

(Chorus)
When I get home, we’ll have a good time. We’ll eat avocados and drink the good wine.
We’ll sit on the couch and I’ll show you pictures, of all of the places I’ve been.

Bruises on my arms, and scares on my face.
Guess I’m kinda ugly i should warn you.
But I am sweet and awfully sincere.
Especially when I’m in California.

Most of the time I’m lonely and sad.
For reasons I cannot explain.
But when I’m with you it, all seems ok.
Guess that’s why I’m not in California.

(Chorus)
Take in a show and drink the good wine.

On the stationary a list by the phone.
Don’t forget to let the dog out.
If you get a chance, please water my plants.
Until I get back from California.
