my lyricsbox
if i knew where to look
to find happiness
well id gather my things
and id build a house next to it
paint all the walls
in a shade of blue gray
to resemble the feelings
that shadow me everyday

[chorus]
as we drive the sky gets darker
every single mile marker
is a stake in my heart
as they tear us apart
theres a streetlight thats still burning
unsure when ill be returning
and i made a mistake
ive been riding the brakes
for 15 hundred miles

shes sweet when it rains
and soft when we sleep
her names califronia
and we have got chemistry
fusing our hearts
for sunsets til dead
streets where we'd hang out
too cool as if four in the am
then pass out with our clothes on
beneath the piers and boardwalks
and wake up to the waves
and wake up to the waves

[chorus]

if there was something i could say
id write it in sand tide came and washes it away
if there was something i could do
im writing this song to remember i cant forget
writing this song cause i wish that i never left
writing this song cause it tears

[chorus]

for 15 hundred miles
