I got a cottage with a sea view 
I got a regular summer tan 
I've been working up the courage to call you all year, oh
There is nothing I can say 
There are no good words left anyway 
Besides people look cool and the world still moves without you, oh 

Welcome to my Californian home 
You don't have to call me you can leave when you want 
There's a picture by my bed 
There's a light in your eyes 
I don't know 
Well I don't know 
Why you still feel alone 

And we were dying from the get go 
I was dreaming but you never believed 
I was trying to fit myself in the spaces between, oh 
And you were kind and sometimes cruel 
You said all the world's love couldn't satisfy you 
And nothing could have hurt me as much as it's truth 
Oh darling 

Welcome to my Californian home 
You don't have to call me you can leave when you want 
There's a picture by my bed 
There's a light in your eyes 
I don't know 
Tell me 'cause I want to find out 
Do you still feel alone? 

Love is elusive when you search for it 
Don't I know 
Happiness sometimes it just creeps in 
Don't I know 
I'm going crazy 
I've been wondering 
Do you still feel alone? 

I need to find 
Some kind of peace of mind 
I need to find 

I got a cottage with a sea view 
I got a regular summer tan 
I know that I deserve more 
But I still want you 

Welcome to my Californian home 
You don't have to call me you can leave when you want 
There's a picture by my bed 
There's a light in your eyes 
I don't know 
Tell me 'cause I want to find out 
Do you still feel? 

Welcome to my California 
(I need to find) 
Even though I'm no good for you 
(Some kind of peace of mind) 
There's a part of me still waiting for you 
(I need to find) 
Welcome to my happy ending 
(I need to find) 
Even though it's fun pretending 
(Some kind of peace of mind) 
I know 
I know you can't look back, you can never go back 

Welcome to my Californian home 
You can never go back 
Welcome to my Californian home 
I know 
You can never go back 
Welcome to my Californian home 
I know 
You can never go back 
I know I need to find, do you still feel? 

Welcome to my California
(I need to find) 
Even though I'm no good for you 
(Some kind of peace of mind) 
Deep inside there's a piece of me, there's a piece of me 
Still waiting for you to come home 
Welcome to my Californian home 
(I need to find) 
I know you can never look back, you can never look back again 
(Some kind of peace of mind) 
But tell me 'cause I want to find out 
Do you still feel alone? 
Oh no 
Do you still feel alone? 
Oh no
