  • I've been dreamin' 'bout the West Coast (I've been dreamin')
    Found some faces that I don't know (I've been dreamin' about it)
    Give me the sun for just a year
    I'll kiss the sky and disappear

    I've been starin' up at the greyest skies
    Tryin' to find myself some luck, but it's runnin' dry
    It's like the weather makes the worst of my cloudy mind
    I could really use a dose of some paradise
    Sometimes you gotta run from a broken heart
    Before I turn into a ghost, need a brand new start
    Get myself headed to the coast, man, it ain't that far
    Yeah, they got sun in LA and some shinin' stars

    I've been dreamin' 'bout the West Coast (I've been dreamin')
    Found some faces that I don't know (I've been dreamin' about it)
    I'm seein' signs for California
    Trade the shade for somethin' warmer
    I've been dreamin' 'bout the West Coast (I've been dreamin')
    Where the people take it real slow (I've been dreamin' about it)
    I need the sun for just a year
    I'll kiss the sky and disappear

    Ain't felt a drop now for forty days
    But still they're washing cars and they don't show any age
    Ain't nothin' that you want'll cost you more than time
    If you're tryna find yourself, better get in line
    I'm countin' up my money and spendin' to get it right
    Got the future in my pocket, I'm spendin' it all tonight
    Like a prophet with the vision, I finally see the light
    And you know

    I've been dreamin' 'bout the West Coast (I've been dreamin')
    Found some faces that I don't know (I've been dreamin' about it)
    I'm seein' signs for California
    Trade the shade for somethin' warmer
    I've been dreamin' 'bout the West Coast (I've been dreamin')
    Where the people take it real slow (I've been dreamin' about it)
    I need the sun for just a year
    I'll kiss the sky and disappear, the West Coast

    Glitter nights under starry skies
    All I wanna do is fly
    Take me where the sun shines brighter

    I've been dreamin' 'bout the West Coast
    Time to find myself a new glow
    I need the sun for just a year
    I'll kiss the sky and disappear

    I've been dreamin' 'bout the West Coast (I've been dreamin')
    Found some faces that I don't know (I've been dreamin' about it)
    I'm seein' signs for California
    Trade the shade for somethin' warmer
    I've been dreamin' 'bout the West Coast (I've been dreamin')
    Where the people take it real slow (I've been dreamin' about it)
    I need the sun for just a year
    I'll kiss the sky and disappear Writer/s: Brent Michael Kutzle, Justin Drew Tranter, Mattias Per Larsson, Noel Patrick Zancanella, Robin Lennart Fredriksson, Ryan B. Tedder
