  • This, this music makes me cry
    It sounds just like my soul
    Oh, but I'm not ready to win
    Oh Lord, cause I don't wanna know what they say
    'Cause I get carried away
    Commodifying all the pain

    The things they see in me, I cannot see myself
    When you get bored of me, I'll be back on the shelf
    And when the ocean rises up above the ground
    Maybe I'll drown in

    Cal-al-al-ah-al California
    You only like me when you think I'm looking sad
    Cal-al-al-ah-al California
    I didn't think you'd end up treating me so bad

    Oh (ah-ah-ah)
    Come Monday, it's a dream (ah-ah-ah)
    Broken my own heart again
    Chasing something beautiful
    Oh Lord, but I don't understand what they say
    'Cause I get carried away
    Commodifying all the pain

    The things they see in me, I cannot see myself
    When you get bored of me, I'll be back on the shelf
    And when the ocean rises up above the ground
    Maybe I'll drown in

    Cal-al-al-ah-al California
    You only like me when you think I'm looking sad
    Cal-al-al-ah-al California
    I didn't think you'd end up treating me so bad
    Cal-al-al-ah-al California
    You only like me when you think I'm looking sad
    Cal-al-al-ah-al California
    I didn't think you'd end up treating me so bad

    Oh, I, ready, I
    Na, na, na, ne
    Oh, I, ready, I
    Na, na, na, ne Writer/s: Claire Elise Boucher
