West Coast Lyrics

[Intro: Ryan Tedder]
I've been dreaming about the West Coast
(I've been dreaming)
Found some faces that I don't know
(I've been dreaming about it)
Give me the sun for just a year
I'll kiss the sky and disappear

[Verse 1: Ryan Tedder]
I've been staring up at the greyest skies
Tryna find myself some luck but it's running dry
It's like the weather makes the worst of my cloudy mind
I could really use a dose of some paradise
Sometimes you gotta run from a broken heart
Before I turn into a ghost, need a brand new start
Get myself headed to the coast, man, it ain't that far
Yeah, they got sun in LA and some shining stars

[Chorus: Ryan Tedder]
I've been dreaming about the West Coast
(I've been dreaming)
Found some faces that I don't know
(I've been dreaming about it)
Seeing signs for California
Trade the shade for something warmer
I've been dreaming about the West Coast
(I've been dreaming)
Where the people take it real slow
(I've been dreaming about it)
I need the sun for just a year
I'll kiss the sky and disappear

[Verse 2: Ryan Tedder]
Ain't felt a drop now for forty days
But still they're washing cars and they don't show any age
Ain't nothing that you want'll cost you more than time
If you're tryna find yourself, better get in line
I'm counting up my money and spending to get it right
Got the future in my pocket, I'm spending it all tonight
Like a prophet with the vision, I finally see the light
And you know

[Chorus: Ryan Tedder]
I've been dreaming about the West Coast
(I've been dreaming)
Found some faces that I don't know
(I've been dreaming about it)
Seeing signs for California
Trade the shade for something warmer
I've been dreaming about the West Coast
(I've been dreaming)
Where the people take it real slow
(I've been dreaming about it)
I need the sun for just a year
I'll kiss the sky and disappear

[Post-Chorus: Ryan Tedder]
The West Coast
Glitter nights under starry skies
All I wanna do is fly
Take me where the sun shines brighter

[Bridge: Ryan Tedder]
I've been dreaming about the West Coast
Time to find myself a new glow
I need the sun for just a year
I'll kiss the sky and disappear

[Chorus: Ryan Tedder]
I've been dreaming about the West Coast
(I've been dreaming)
Found some faces that I don't know
(I've been dreaming about it)
Seeing signs for California
Trade the shade for something warmer
I've been dreaming about the West Coast
(I've been dreaming)
Where the people take it real slow
(I've been dreaming about it)
I need the sun for just a year
I'll kiss the sky and disappear
