Lyrics

On a gray October day, I kissed your lips at the door.
The road signs going home, just didn't read like before.
Mountain mist pointed silently, the ghost beside me was you.
It was Santa Rosa by sunset, was this the right thing to do?
Chorus:
And it's, cold in California.
The sun seems light years away.
Sometimes I'm so tired honey, I almost give it away.
And it's cold in California, that kiss seems light years away.
And I still feel the fire baby, that burns night into day.

Lead break and bridge.

Verse 2:
North coast cutting wind, my pride is ripped to the bone.
A fool tries to change time just to keep from being alone.
I'd tell you I love and won't you stay here for a while.
Have you ever loved someone enough to let them go with a smile.

Chorus:
And it's, cold in California, the sun seems light years away.
Sometimes I'm so tired honey, I almost give it away.
It's cold in California and that kiss seems light years away,
And I still feel the fire baby that burns night into day.
It's cold in California and love seems light years away.
Won't you come feel the fire baby, that burns night into day.
So come feel the fire baby, that burns night into day.
