    Leaving LA

    Half an hour out

    And eight more up ahead

    The music should be loud

    But I turned it off instead

     

    Into the silence I descend

    Lost in thought in the purr of the engine

     

    I’m Leaving LA

    Off to greener skyline

    I’m gonna capture

    My fruit on the vine

    You’re the one who told me

    Seek and you will find

    How was I to know

    Leaving LA

    Meant letting me go

     

    The rolling hills of Highway 5

    Have turned into the flat

    My eyes are on the road

    But my heart is turning back

     

    But for what, what would happen then

    I can’t bear another long, sad goodbye again

     

    Chorus repeat

     

    Bridge

    I keep hearing you say

    You’re so behind me

     

    Cause in the rearview mirror

    Is the wisdom of your way

    I knew you couldn’t come

    You didn’t ask me to stay

     

    And for that, I love you even more

    For giving me freedom with an open door

     

    I’m Leaving LA

    Off to greener skyline

    I’m gonna capture

    My fruit on the vine

    You’re the one who told me

    Seek and you will find

    How was I to know

    Leaving LA

    Meant letting me go…off to greener skyline

    Letting me go…seek and you find

    You’re letting me go

    California Weather

    California Weather

    Heading south to San Francisco I pulled off on a whim

    Found myself along the ocean in the headlands of Marin

    Just past Ft Baker

    I sat out under a tree

    Stared back at the Golden Gate

    And thought about you and me

     

    Chorus

    Our love and the great Pacific

    Can rise up and roar

    When the fog comes rolling in

    It gets dark and cold to the core

    But when the sun is shining

    And it shines most all the time

    It doesn’t get any better, than

    California Weather

     

    The sailboats out on the bay try to stay on an even keel

    Cause even on the calmest day it takes a steady hand on the wheel

    It’s easy to get caught up

    In what’s your fault and what’s mine

    We live in the land of shifting ground

    And tread lightly on the fault line

     

    Chorus Repeat

     

    Bridge

    So pour a glass of wine

    Put your hand in mine

    Let’s do a little dance

    And pray for RAIN!

     

    Lalala lalalala, lalala lalalala

     

    We’re ten degrees of 75

    Roll back the roof and let’s drive

    Mendocino to San Diego

    It doesn’t get any better, than

     

    Our love and the great Pacific

    Can rise up and roar

    When the fog comes rolling in

    It gets dark and cold to the core

    But when the sun is shining

    And it shines most all the time

    It doesn’t get any better, than

    California Weather, California Weather

    California Weather, California Weather

    California Weather, California Weather

    This Is It

    This Is It

    I watched you run into the waves

    Laughed as you shook off the cold

    Then you turned your face to the sun

    All I saw was your silhouette

    Framed in gold of a California sunset  

         

    And in that moment

    Like few moments

    I felt something pure

    In that moment I knew for sure

    This Is It

    This Is It

     

    I lie there with my body bare

    Somewhere between excitement and pain

    There was no turning back

    I thought it would all feel strange

    But strangely enough I welcomed the change

     

    Cause in that moment

    Like few moments

    I felt something pure

    In that moment I knew for sure

    This Is It

    This Is It

     

    Oh, Your blue eyes hold me

    In an ocean of possibility

    It’s as clear as a day in Half Moon Bay, yea!

     

    Cause in that moment

    Like few moments, I knew

    Cause in that moment

    Like few moments

    I felt something pure

    In that moment I knew for sure

    This Is It

    ThIs Is It

    This Is It

    It’s as clear as a day in Half Moon Bay

    Play House

    Play House

     

    Hey baby what ya want to do today

    I’m thinking we just might stay

    Here in our own little house and

    Play House

     

    The world outside is cold and grey

    Perfect weather to hide out from the fray

    I could just lay in your arms and

    Play House

     

    I’m feeling chocolate pancakes

    Bring em’ on back here to bed

    Turn on cartoons and laugh like two kids with nothing to do

    But lie around all morning til it’s afternoon.

     

    Champagne and OJ

    Kick off time is 2:28

    Let’s push record and make our own

    Replays….

     

    In slow mo….

     

    Hey baby I just gotta say

    I could spend my whole life this way

    Here’s hoping someday

    We’ll have 2 maybe 3

    Little kids to play

     

    Here is our own little

    Play House

    Play House

     

    Here in our own little

    Play House

    Kahana Sand

    KAHANA SAND

     

    You sit there in your beach chair

    Drinking a pog and rum

    I sit here in my beach chair

    Thinking you might get me another one

     

    Cause I’m busy reading my trashy novel

    Supervising pails and shovels

     

    Chorus

    Oh, Bury me in the Kahana Sand

    Let me forever hear my children playing

    Where the waves break on the coral reef

    And the palm fronds gently swaying

     

    It’s no chores, sunscreen wars

    Bodies flying in the surf

    The red flag is raising the guard

    And I’m just praying nobody gets hurt

     

    And as the sun dips down behind Lanai

    The low of conch shell bids goodbye

     

    Chorus repeat

     

    Bridge

    Oh Mahalo Maui

    Your Ohana lives in me

     

    As I look across this channel

    And think of waters we have crossed

    We have fought against the current

    Nearly drown in pride and in loss

     

    But we kept our heads above water

    To find ourselves, to find each other

    Rich in family and friends

    Where all other cares drift away on the trade winds

     

    Chorus repeat
