  • Take me back to California
    To those crystal neon signs
    The traveling sensation
    I'm blinded by the light
    There are eyes on every corner
    Blow your brains in random smiles
    There are coats of many colors
    Flying high up in the sky

    Won't you come round my way
    For some conversation, please
    Won't you come round my way
    It's a conversation piece

    Look at all these shattered faces
    They all look so out of place
    They've got nothing left to live for
    They'll be dead before they wait

    I'd love to know just what you're thinking
    Tell me what I ought to do
    I will never leave you lonely
    You're the one I'm runnin' to

    Get me out of California
    Take out there to the blue
    We could make it out together
    To the places calling you

    Won't you come round my way
    For some conversation, please
    Won't you come round my way
    It's a conversation piece

    Oh won't you come round my way
    For some conversation, please
    Oh won't you come round my way
    For some conversation, please
    Oh, won't you come round my way
    It's a conversation piece Writer/s: Anthony Caleb Followill, Ivan Followill, Jared Followill, Matthew Followill
