  • Little darling don't you cry even California's cold sometimes
    We can make it, we got to try
    Hey I believe in California rain

    Yeah
    Let me take you back before the lights, before the crowd, before we made a sound
    All I wanted was to make my mother proud
    She told me son well from the side of town, no one even makes it out
    Before we created, before they hated,
    before anyone anticipated, we just want to make it
    They said your crazy nothing is ever changing
    So I packed up all my things and headed out towards the ocean

    In my imagination California's waiting
    She'll take me by the hand say I no I'm so glad you've finally made it
    Here comes the rain

    Little darling don't you cry, even California's cold sometimes
    We can make it, we got to try
    Hey I believe
    Summer's waiting, on the other side
    There's no limit, we can touch the sky
    Hey I believe in California rain (Yeah)

    It's been a long time coming, a long road running
    You know what I'm saying, if you ever wanted something
    So bad that you can taste it, gonna sleep until you make it
    And you know when you got it no one else could ever take it
    When I met her she was easy, she was happy just to make it
    She never wanted nothing just, something to believe in
    When the storm start raging, and all the tribulations
    When the five stars waiting, you've just got to recreate it

    In my imagination California's waiting
    She'll take me by the hand say I no I'm so glad you've finally made it
    Here comes the rain

    Little darling don't you cry, even California's cold sometimes
    We can make it, we got to try
    Hey I believe
    Summer's waiting, on the other side
    There's no limit ,we can touch the sky
    Hey I believe in California rain (Yeah)
    (California rain, California rain, California rain)

    Everything ain't what it seems, California rain on me
    Everything ain't what it seems, California rain on me
    Everything ain't what it seems (rain on me), California rain on me Writer/s: BENJI MADDEN, ERIC VALENTINE, JOEL MADDEN
