Song Meaning
Verse 1
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
Verse 2
California
I thought I should see
Now I'm back home yeah
With twelve little pieces of me
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
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
Verse 5
California
I thought I should see
Now I'm back home, yeah
With twelve little pieces of me
Verse 6
California
I dreamed I would find
Some kinda sorta pick-me-up
Twelve little pieces of my mind
Verse 7
California
I thought I should see
Now I'm back home, yeah
With twelve little pieces of me
Verse 8
California
I dreamed I would find
Some kinda sorta pick-me-up
Twelve pieces of my mind
