Little California GirlWide eyes, her smile was so brightLittle California Girl1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
It's such a shame I had to take that flight
She seemed so quiet, sitting all alone
Maybe now I’ll pick up the damn phone.
I wonder if she can see the beauty that I see
That sparkle in her eyes staring back at me
The skip in her step, the chills in my spine
If only, oh, if only I could make her mine.
While I pray for another kiss in the fading light
She’ll be waiting for me on the return flight
Such a shame I had to go, yet she understood.
I didn't call, even though I knew I should…
I can see her sitting alone under the sun
Waiting, just waiting, for any excuse to run
Her eyes stay glued to the cotton candy sky
I hope she knows that last kiss wasn’t goodbye.
All those butterflies my heart can’t contain
The way she sings just drives me insane.
I’ll be here while she sleeps beneath the moon.
My little California girl… I shall see you soon
