I wrote a message in the sand
Then the waves took it away
To a place where you are standing
And maybe you will read it.
I am living in paradise
At least it would be paradise
If only you were here
And not so many miles away

Do you think of me and feel the shelter
Do you think of me and feel the warmth
Do you remember…
When we caught the wave together
And we held a perfect world
When I was your California Girl.

You caught the summer in your arms
Held as tight as you could hold
But the seasons kept on turning

And took you to your winter.
Are you watching far from here
Ships that rise and disappear
And flying fish like silver arrows
Broken by the moon?

Do you ever dream of blood red sunsets
Do you feel the fire in your skin
Do you remember…
When we caught the wave together
And we held a perfect world
When I was your California Girl.

Lemonade and sushi for breakfast
Sea spray and salt on your hands
If only I could make time stand still.

Do you think of me and feel the shelter
Do you think of me and feel the warmth
Do you remember…
When we caught the wave together
And we held a perfect world
When I was your California Girl.
