I spent a week drinking the sunlight of Winnetka, California
Where they understand the weight of human hearts
You see, sorrow gets too heavy and joy it tends to hold you
With the fear that it eventually departs

       C                  D                G               Em
And the truth is I’ve been dreaming of some tired tranquil place
          C                 D                 G
Where the weather won’t get trapped inside my bones
       C                D                  G           Em
And if all the years of searching find one sympathetic face
          C          D                             G
Then it's there I'll plant these seeds and make my home

I spent a day dreaming of dying in Mesa, Arizona
Where all the green of life had turned to ash
And I felt I was on fire, with the things I could have told you
I just assumed that you eventually would ask

      C			D		G	     Em
And I wouldn’t have to bring up my so badly broken heart
    C                  D              G
And all those months I just wanted to sleep
           C                   D         G                Em
And though spring, it did come slowly; I guess it did its part
             C          D            G
My heart has thawed and continues to beat

And I visited my brother on the outskirts of Olympia
Where the forest and the water become one
And we talked about our childhood
Like a dream we were convinced of
That perfect, peaceful street that we came from

      C                D                   G              Em
And I know he heard me strumming all those sad and simple chords
     C             D            G
As I sat inside my room so long ago
       C          D          G                                    Em
And it hurts that he’s still shaking from those secrets that were told
     C                 D                        G
By a car closed up too tight and a heart turned cold

And I went to San Diego, and the birthplace of the summer
And watched the ocean dance under the moon
There was a girl I knew there, one more potential lover
I guess that something’s gotta happen soon

        C                 D              G             Em
Cause I know I can’t keep living in this dead or dying dream
     C                D                    G
As I walked along the beach and drank with her
          C        D              G            Em
I thought about my true love, the one I really need
     C                 D                    G
With eyes that burn so bright, they make me pure

They make me pure, they make me pure
  C       D       G
I long to be with you
They make me pure, they make me pure
      C       D/A     G
And I long to be with you
