​California Wave

This song is by Bill Mallonee and appears on the album WPA Vol. 12 Songs For The Journey & Beyond (2012).

No, it's never been a problem
For me to light up a stage
I could ride that moment
Like a California wave
Make you glad to be alive
Next moment break your heart
But it's when those big lights went out
Well, that where the problem starts

You'll go back to your fine homes
With some new stories to tell
And me? well, I'll just crawl back
To a lonely motel
With a bottle as an only friend
After all's been done and said
With Gideon's Bible
In a drawer beside my bed

Now you can be a pauper
Or you can be a king
But if you've never ever known yourself
It don't mean a thing
It don't mean a thing

Now, I musta left a part of me
Way back there on this ride
Now, the mirror, she's like a camera
And you know cameras' never lie
No, it's never been a problem
For me to light up a stage
Hey, I could ride that moment
Like a California wave
Like a California wave
