  • I found this corner in my mind
    A homage to youth and days gone by
    Those memories got left behind
    Now have a purpose and a life

    Maybe we could leave
    No more apologies

    We're just lovers on the run
    California here we come (California)
    Just when I thought those days had gone
    Still wishing we were young
    Young

    Emotions tested and refined
    As we stare at snapshots of our lives
    We sat beside the waters edge
    The smugglers cave above our heads

    Maybe we could leave
    No more apologies

    We're just lovers on the run
    California here we come (California)
    Just when I thought those days had gone
    Still wishing we were young
    We were young

    We're just lovers on the run
    California here we come

    When I see your face
    The future that awaits
    Another city rising from the dust
    Neon lights the way
    Way

    We're just lovers on the run
    California here we come (California)
    Just when I thought those days had gone
    Still wishing we were young
    We were young

    We're just lovers on the run
    California here we come (California)
    Just when I thought those days had gone
    I thought the love had gone
    Gone
