California, guess I'm going
Hopefully it's for the best
New York City, it's been nice knowing you
But I'm jumping on a plane toward the west
And I'm never coming back here
Until I come back to stay
So goodbye concrete jungle
I can't let you get in my way

Don't get too comfortable, stop planting roots
You'll only regret it in the end
Cuz you can't be in one place for long
And time is never your friend

California, treat me kindly
With your mild sunny days
I'm confident that I won't mind
Getting away from the rain
I'll pack up my umbrella
And put it on a shelf
Until next time, my Manhattan
Maybe till I find myself

[rep. chorus]

California, do you remember
When I first held your hand
In the dead of summer
But my feet never touched sand
Even then I knew that somehow
I'd return to stake my claim
On a life in California
Where nobody knows my name

[rep. chorus]

Time is never your friend
Yeah, you can't be in one place for long
And time is never your friend
