Someday they’re going to write about us
Living here in the shadow of this gathering dust
As the waves build up and drown the light
While we’re hanging from buildings on a saturday night

And the words she said
I could barely hear over the blare of the speakers and the smell of beer
As she got up to speak, she lifted her dress
I remember her face but I forget the rest

Here in california, I was
Just a name and a number, a face on a tumblr
Here in california, we’re all stuck in the same scene
All nightmares and daydreams
In California

She said, “I got money, but I got no friends”
As we drove through the valley in her daddy’s benz
She said, “these pills wear off, but the pain don’t end. I never thought it would matter so much to pretend”

And the thing about her that haunts me still:
As her hands fell down to the steering wheel
And a shock of light fell across her face
She said there’s only two ways out of this place

Here in california, I was
Just a name and a number, a face on a tumblr
Here in california, we’re all stuck in the same scene
All nightmares and daydreams
In california

And oh, I hope it’s clear: There’s no room for us anymore in the atmosphere
But darling I always liked the desperation in your eyes
The way you’d dance in the glow of the hollywood freeway lights

Someday they’re gonna forget about us
And we’ll wonder if we were ever good enough
It hit me last night, in this song I heard
I remember the feeling but forget all the words

Here in california, I was
Just a name and a number, a face on a tumblr
Here in california, we’re all stuck in the same scene
All nightmares and daydreams
In california
