lyrics

He was the boy with the California sun
that followed him down
by the curls of his crown

wherever he walked
the sun warmed the ground
and the sky pulled back
the folds of her gown

Once or twice seems coincidental
but three times forms the cause
so we asked him to stay
to warm all our thoughts
and shed winter coats for lazy lovely days

It was never his fault
the boy with sun
he was just one
with the wonder of it all

And the sun shown
on all dark corners
Breaking closets free
with all of our skeletons
crawling out for heat

He was the boy with the california sun
that walked to the pier
by the point of a gun

And the sea took him in
and swallowed him whole
and the sky rolled back
like a scroll

It was never his fault
the boy with sun
he was just one
with the wonder of it all
