Southern California is Your Girlfriend - Indigo Girls

I caught every red light on the way to catch you
But that train's pulled out, been long gone anyway
There was no note in frost on the window
Second thoughts or hidden signs
It's not like you stole off in the night
From the weight of something you just couldn't bear
You were never trying to elude me
You just had your plans and they didn't include me
Southern California is your girlfriend
The sunny twist of Venice Chez-Jay some gay not all the way
Here I stand Midwestern corn fed squinting down the track
It's time to unpack
I know what it means now, that je ne seis quoi
It means something taught you not to tell
Soon enough the air of your mystery
Is choked with the poisonous mix of your history
Southern California is your girlfriend
The sunny twist of Venice Chez Jay some gay not all the way
Here I stand Midwestern corn fed staring down the track
It is time to unpack
The ferris wheel were the tourist go
The late night deals behind the Loews
The hopeful stunner who takes your order
Your last chance mojo south of the border
There's a soldier on leave in a foreign land
There's a girl who dreams of lands across the sea
The postcard pictures are rare and exotic
The hum of the engines is deep and hypnotic
