Well, I’m holding on, yeah, I'm holding it all in
When it all goes wrong you just can't win.
I can’t stand another sunrise and I need a little rain
Well, the angels left this city and they won’t be back again.

Now I’m leaving California and I’ll never look back.
I took a picture for you but I painted it black.
One more dream around a run away drive,
Now there's one less burned out star in the sky,
Leaving California tonight.

There's a broken dream in Santa Monica, crushing night,
And that old movie, well, it’s got in my way tonight,
And the lights are in the rear view and the stars up in the sky
And I don’t know where I’m going, baby, but it’s time to say goodbye.

Now I’m leaving California and I’ll never look back.
I took a picture for you but I painted it black.
One more dream around a run away drive,
Now there's one less burned out star in the sky,
Leaving California tonight.

I've got a one way ticket, I’m a rolling stone,
I’m a goodbye kiss and then I’m going, going, gone.
Like wind, like fire, like rain,
Know I’m never coming back again.

‘Cause I’m leaving California and I’ll never look back.
I took a picture for you but I painted it black.
One more dream around a run away drive,
Now there's one less burned out star in the sky,
Leaving California,

Now I’m leaving California and I’ll never look back.
I took a picture for you but I painted it black.
One more dream around a run away drive,
Now there's one less burned out star in the sky,
Leaving California tonight
