California - Lyrics by Akia


Lyrics

[Verse 1]

Starin out my window at you
Gettin by aint the same without you
And I aint the same without you
Can't even do my thing without you
So Long
To the one I Love
And I remember how it was
I wish I could be back there cuz
I wanna be back where I can...

[Chorus]
Take the top off the ride
We can cruise around
Listen to the sound as the sun goes down
And there's a party goin on every corner
Thatz why i gotta be in California
We can take the top off the ride
And hit the shore
We can hit sunset
We can hit the stores
And there's a party goin on every corner
Thatz why i gotta be in California

[Verse 2]
Starin out my window at you
Gettin by aint the same without you
But life aint the same without you
Cuz I know that it will be too long
Before I see you
Tears from my eyes cry too
Tears from my eyes cry too
I love it when the breeze comes through
So as soon as I get back I'm gonna...

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
Top of the ride
We can cruise around
Listen to the sounds till the sun goes down
And there's a party goin on every corner
Thatz why i gotta be in California Baby
Top off the ride
And hit the shore
We can hit sunset
There aint no better sunset

[Rap]
We in the city with the cadillacs
The chevolets
And it be sunny every day
It never rains
And we be in 'em Drop Top
Wit Hop Hop
Gettin 3 wheels lookin for the spots
With them mamis in the party pants
And cornrows
Thatz anywhere from Crenshaw to Melrose
We ridin down sunset
Long as i got a blunt left
If you can smell you can tell
I'm from the west

[Chorus]
[Bridge]
