Lyrics

She got a lock on California

but she dreams of Tennessee.

She got a rider right beside her

but she only thinks of me.

 

I'm a lot like California.

I'm the wind blowing through your hair.

And I'm a thousand miles behind ya

I just wish that I was there.

 

Look to the sky under the sun.

Count every step as you go.

When you get so high, you don't need anyone.

But you already know,

that you're my afterglow.

 

She said wow, how could you act that way.

I said, ooh, ooh, ooh, because you know it's true.

There's a lot of typical conversations that go,

"I only think of you."

Its three o'clock in the morning.

What's goin on in my head?

I spend a lot of time in my own mind and slurring

the things I shoulda said.

 

Look to the sky under the sun.

Count every step as you go.

When you get so high, you don't need anyone.

But you already know,

that you're my afterglow.

 

Afterglow.

Afterglow.

She's got that something

but I can't see nothing but a...

Afterglow.

Afterglow.

 

 

Look to the sky under the sun.

Count every step as you go.

When you get so high, you don't need anyone.

But you already know,

you already know,

you're my afterglow.
