Leaving California
Maroon 5 Lyrics


You got in so late
It's Sunday morning
Said that you were leaving
Letting go of us
Where did we go wrong, oh
And now you say you're leaving California
Gotta head back East and want to leave tonight
Pack your things and go, oh
But if you run away
I won't be alright

Even if the sun crashes into us
I won't let go, I won't let go
And I can be your light
Stay with me tonight
I won't let go, I won't let go
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, yeah yeah yeah

Pick up all the pieces
Fight to hold on
Put them back together, do it all for love, oh
Never let it go
Oh yeah, hm
'Cause I don't need a reason
Just to hold ya
Wipe all of your tears and
Look you in the eyes, oh
Oh baby please don't go
Oh yeah
But if you run away
I won't be alright

Even if the sun crashes into us
I won't let go, I won't let go
And I can be your light
Stay with me tonight
I won't let go, I won't let go
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, yeah yeah yeah

Now you say you're leaving California

You got in so late, it's Sunday Morning
Said that you were leaving, letting go of us
Where did we go wrong? Oh..
And now you say you're leaving California
Gotta head back East and wanna leave tonight
Pack your things and go, oh..
But, if you run now, wait, I won't be alright

Even if the Sun crashes into us
I won't let go, I won't let go
And I can be your light, just stay with me tonight
I won't let go, I won't let go
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Pick up all the pieces, fight to hold on
Put them back together, do it all for love
Oh..
Never let it go, oh yeah..
Cause I don't need a reason just to hold ya
Wipe off all your tears and look you in the eye
Oh..Baby, please don't go, oh yeah
But, if you run now, wait, I won't be alright

Even if the Sun crashes into us
I won't let go, I won't let go
And I can be your light, just stay with me tonight
I won't let go, I won't let go
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Now you say you're leaving California...

Ultimate Warrior X2

Its very current year

Maroon5 knew that everybody would be leaving California..just too crowded..

Mr. Shades

I will play this when my family finally leave California.

Mr. Shades

@Benjamin York Thanks, now we just need to find a place and we have our eyes set on Texas and we don't give a damn about the twisters.

Davide Marcianesi

Best song on maroon 5's entire career. I'm comparing this to How, Runaway, Nothing Lasts Forever and so on. This is the best by far cause it's essential, deep and with an awesome lovely melody. There are no excessive points, it's good as it is itself and sounds like their own. Beautiful.

Aren Aguila

Im pretty sure if just 1 radio station played this song, it would probably get popular right away ;)

Karin Johnson

I have lived in California my entire life and I am leaving soon. No jobs, too expensive here, and I have no family so why not?

Catherine Scott

I was born there too but I had to move because my family was poor

Saint318

That's how I feel about British Columbia which is Canada's version of California. It's far too expensive to live here and I can't wait to finally leave.
