Don't turn the sun around
Find any way to keep the lights on
You say you maybe wanna know when it's gone
But you only know it's true

She was standing on the end of Vine
in the newest open space at the back of the line
insisting it's just something that got in her eyes
of California blue

Maybe I've been hanging on
to this broken ride a little too long
We shot some chances, we'll go on—or try
It's all that we can do

Don't pull the moon down
I need something to look up at when you're not around
It's the only thing you'll see from downtown
and I don't wanna spoil the view

It's always when you think you got it made
You'll remember the one time you should've stayed
And all the ghosts color me the deepest shade
of California blue

We shot some chances
We'll go on—or try
That's all that we can do ...
