Spent my days with a woman unkind: Smoked my stuff and drank all my wine. Made up my mind, make a new start, Goin' to California with an achin' in my heart. Someone told me there's a girl out there With love in her eyes and flowers in her hair. Took my chances on a big jet plane. Never let 'em tell you that they're all the same. Ah, the Sea was red and the Sky was grey: I wondered how tomorrow could ever follow today. The mountains and the canyons start to tremble and shake: Children of the Sun begin to wake.... [spoken:] watch out Seems like the wrath of the Gods got a punch on the nose and it's startin' to flow, I think I might be sinking. Throw me a line, if I reach it in time (I'll) meet you up there where the path runs straight and high. Find a Queen without a King, They say she plays guitar and cries and sings: la-la-la-la. Ride a white mare in the footsteps of Dawn, Tryin' to find a woman who's never, never, never been born. Standing on a hill and a mountain of dreams, Telling myself it's not as hard, hard, hard as it seems.... Ahhhhh..... Ahhhhh..... Ahhhhh..... Ahhhhh..... Ahhhhh..... Ahhhhh..... Fade out...
