California, you're a beauty
An apparition to me now
Palm trees silhouetted against a sunset sky
Air so rich and tender, it almost makes me cry

California, you seduce me
Where the mountains meet the sea
And when I think of you
I feel that ecstasy
Climbing and descending
On a road that's never-ending

And you are all the things I left behind
California, you're my golden state of mind

California, I'm in love with you
Your magic always the same
Your season's always summer
Except for driving rain
A little bit of sadness
And then the sun comes out again

And you are all the things I left behind
California, you're my golden state of mind

California, I'm a dreamer
And you're a dream come true
Though you seem as real
As someone I have kissed
I wake to find
You're nothing more than mist

And you are all the things I left behind
California, you're my golden state of mind
California, you're my golden state of mind
