HERE IN CALIFORNIA
Lucinda Williams


When I was young, my mama told me

She said child, take your time

Don't fall in love too quickly before you know your mind

She held me round the shoulders

In a voice so soft and kind

She said love can make you happy and love can rob you blind


CHORUS

Here in California

Fruit hangs heavy on the vine

There's no gold-I thought I'd warn ya

and the hills turn brown in the summertime


Now I may learn to love you

but I can't say when

This morning we were strangers, and tonight we're only friends

I'll take my time to know you, I'll take my time to see

There's nothing I won't show you if you take your time with me


CHORUS


It's an old, familiar story, an old, familiar rhyme

To everything there is a season, to every purpose there's a time

A time to love and come together, a time we look long for a mate

A time for questions we can't answer, though we ask them just the same
