lyrics

we were philosophers and fools
in California afternoons
that we knew would never last
we had nothing else to do
so we gave ourselves to you
California afternoons
why'd you move along so fast?

I don't know if I can say
if I wanted you to want for me to stay
but why do you gotta call my name
when the awful truth is that I'm the one who don't remain

we were holding off the moon
from California afternoons
as we lay there in the park
we had nothing else to prove
so we made ourselves like you
California afternoons
why'd you let us get so dark?

if I holler let me know
might be halfway round the world before it shows
on the BQE
I look over at that postcard view
been searching for a future me
he's been dreaming of his past with you
California afternoons
