California King Bed

Album: Loud (2010)
Charted: 8 37
  • Chest to chest
    Nose to nose
    Palm to palm
    We were always just that close
    Wrist to wrist
    Toe to toe
    Lips that felt just like the inside of a rose
    So how come when I reach out my finger
    It feels like more than distance between us

    In this California king bed
    We're ten thousand miles apart
    I'll be California wishing on these stars
    For you're heart on me
    My California king

    Eye to eye
    Cheek to cheek
    Side by side
    You were sleeping next to me
    Arm in arm
    Dusk to dawn
    With the curtains drawn
    And a little last night on these sheets
    So how come when I reach out my finger
    It seems like more than distance between us

    In this California king bed
    We're ten thousand miles apart
    I'll be California wishing on these stars
    For you're heart on me
    My California king

    Just when I felt like giving up on us
    You turned around and gave me one last touch
    That made everything feel better
    And even then my eyes got wetter
    So confused wanna ask you if you love me
    But I don't wanna seem so weak
    Maybe I've been California dreaming

    In this California king bed
    We're ten thousand miles apart
    I'll be California wishing on these stars
    For you're heart on me
    My California king
    My California king

    In this California king bed
    We're ten thousand miles apart
    I'll be California wishing on these stars
    For you're heart on me
    My California king
