Lyrics

I'll wish my life away
Til it fits in this old suitcase
You can have everything I've had
If you won't let it go to waste

She carried a heavy heart here
With a pack on her back
And a prayer for grace
Not sure what to hope for
Tired of being told she's running away

Lyrics continue below...

California, you can hold my hand
California, I won't hold you down

She smiles saying any given moment
There's a car moving anywhere you can dream
With a free tank of gas and an empty seat
And a driver I guess you'll be needing to meet

Solitude can be easy
Its coming out from the wilderness drives you mad
And there's a fine line she's learned to walk
Between an open mind and knowing when to talk

California, you can hold my hand
California, I won't hold you down

So get off the road
You swears been good to you
Get off your feet
And rest a while with me

Tomorrow's winds might change
Old travelling path might call your name
The more we share
The harder it is to up and walk away

California, you can hold my hand
California, I won't hold you down

So when you head, head west
Hitch south, run all the way home
I'll wish my life away
Til it fits in this old suitcase
