Driven through the canyons I was 
Dazzled by the mountains and we didn't go very far 
Close enough to heaven if you 
Climb up on a mansion you too can swing like a star 
I tried to get inside I bought a 
Ticket with my pride and I was gone right out of my head 
I went out for a ride to go 
Across a great divide but I ended up at home instead 

California 
I thought I should see 
Now I'm back home  yeah 
With twelve little pieces of me 

I was just a passenger a 
Rider on the tremors that were shaking all our beds at night 
A visitor a stranger thought I 
Might pass for a regular if I just kept out of the lights 

Tore my heart out from my chest 
Mixed it up in my mind with the best freshest pieces of my soul 
Chose the ones I loved the most 
Drove 'em all down to the coast 
Threw 'em in a big black hole

California 
I thought I should see 
Now I'm back home, yeah 
With twelve little pieces of me 

California 
I dreamed I would find 
Some kinda sorta pick-me-up 
Twelve little pieces of my mind 

California 
I thought I should see 
Now I'm back home, yeah 
With twelve little pieces of me 

California 
I dreamed I would find 
Some kinda sorta pick-me-up 
Twelve pieces of my mind
