Hey California

from Long Night Moon

I'm gonna get you to take your heavy coat off
I'm gonna turn the heat up in the house
I'm gonna get you to lie down with me baby
Let the sun shine underneath the clouds

The ground below us is frozen
And the snow, well it keeps on coming down
I'll build a tunnel to your skin, if you let me in
We'll make a fire right inside the house

Hey California, we're cold as hell
But we got ways to entertain ourselves

In December we pretend that we're moving
We point out places on the map
We look at houses online,  we read the L.A. Times
We go out in to the snow and laugh

And when you go to California
They want to know why you'd live back East
When the weather there is cold and the people there are cold
I say the people are why I'll never leave

Hey California, we're cold as hell
But we got ways to entertain ourselves
Hey California, when you watch us freeze
Please don't talk about those lemon trees
Hey California just one more thing
I'm about to get my mind blown by spring
