Maybe one of these days I'll make it to California

And I'll be able to see the Pacific

I heard it's oh, so blue

Yeah, one of these days I'll make it to California

And maybe i can live out my dreams with you



I sat down today and wrote a story

A plan of sorts to travel from shore to shore

I'll start of out In Sunny New Jersey

And When it ends I'll be at your front door.



You always promised me a place to stay

If i ever headed your way

So baby leave on the light

and wait by the door

Because I'm on my way to the west coast shore.



Maybe one of these days I'll make it to California

And I'll be able to see the pacific,

i hear it's oh, so blue

yeah one of these days I'll make it to California

and maybe then i can live out my dreams with you



They always told me to follow my dreams and shoot for the stars

But if I'm happy doing what i love then it shouldn't matter how far

i go

They say I'm acting foolish and wasting my precious time

But I'm just trying make it happen to bring my dream alive

So after i planned my coast to coast tour

i kiss them goodbye and head for the door

I guess in the morning they'll realize

It was time for me to fly.



Maybe one of these days I'll make it to California

And I'll be able to see the Pacific

I heard it's oh, so blue

Yeah, one of these days I'll make it to California

And maybe i can live out my dreams with you



I called you up in Arizona

and told you i had a surprise

I sent out in the mail the other day

I hope it's something you recognize

You asked me 20 questions and every guess was wrong

But i hope you realize it when I'm at your doorstep singing this song.



Because today was the day i made it to California

I can smell the Pacific

i can't wait to see the view

Yeah today i made it to California

And since i left all i could think about was you
