lyrics

From San Francisco Bay down to Monterey
Livin’ up my daze in an ocean-side haze
I never came to play, but when I tried to slip away
They gave me four hundred twenty reasons to stay

Out here on my own
My baby’s back at home
Though I’d like to stay I need someone to pull me away
‘Cause I sure don’t wanna lose
Myself in Santa Cruz

The beating of the drum echoes with the hums
Stollin’ down Pacific in the shining sun
The surfers and the bums, the buskers who strum
Everyone just came here to have some fun

Out here on my own
My baby’s back at home
Though I’d like to stay I need someone to pull me away
‘Cause I sure don’t wanna lose
Myself in Santa Cruz

Even in the hills spirits fly as they will
Passing things around that make time stand still
Vibing with the chill, Cali dreams are fulfilled
It’s been easy wasting time I’ve had my West Coast fill

Out here on my own
My baby’s back at home
Though I’d like to stay I need someone to pull me away
‘Cause I sure don’t wanna lose
Myself in Santa Cruz

I’ve been spending every night
Wishing you would hold me tight
Oh the sheets are so cold with no one to hold me close
Hold me close, please hold me close

Out here on my own
My baby’s back at home
Though I’d like to stay I need someone to pull me away
‘Cause I sure don’t wanna lose
Myself in Santa Cruz
