"California"
©Karen Benedetto (ASCAP) Words & Music

Youth, and carefree, sun-drenched days–gone, but always in memory and longing. Strong imagery of time with a personal focus; more than a mere feeling. A person, a moment, a place…

Sittin’ by a window havin’ coffee with a friend.
This day in Sausalito in my heart can never end.
Drivin’ through the redwoods,
With my good friend by my side.
Now when I think back, it just makes me want to cry.

California seems like a dream to me now.
California, it all seems so unreal somehow.
California, as I think of you today.
California, you feel so very far away.

Drivin, down the coastline, our laughter fills the air.
Stoppin’ by a sandy beach, life without a care.
Drivin’ ‘cross the Golden Gate, the sunset fills the sky.
My heart is filled with happiness, but a tear is in my eye.

California seems like a dream to me now.
California, it all seems so unreal somehow.
California, where I found a real friend..
California, hey, why’d it have to end?

Trav’lin’ ‘round from town to town,
There’s so much left to see,
Time’s so short, but love’s so strong, it just amazes me.
Through all our changes, rearranges,
Our friendship seemed to thrive.
It took you and California to make me feel alive.

California seems like a dream to me now.
California, oh, it all seems so unreal somehow.
California, had to leave my friend behind
California, you’re always on my mind.
