Last night, you were possessed by the devil
And you wouldn't turn off the shower
Sighing deep in disgust with how I threw away your trust
And if I spoke, it just got louder
I knew that little girl
She would sing to the streetlights
On a winter’s day
Now we live in California
Where the beaches are cold and grey
So, why do I try to pretend I'm alright and you’re a victim?
So what, it's been years and if I hear that again
It's not my style to feel vindictive
The skies reappear with the flames dying traces
As the palms would sway
Now we live in California
Where the beaches are cold and grey
Not to mention the tremolo guitars
Pandemonium of cars
And the right to be happy
Don't forget all the places we could go
Any day now Mexico
If we don't spend all our money
I've seen you satisfied
Just wait till September
I know we'll be okay
Now we live in California
Where the beaches are cold and grey

His latest release, Crude Magic, is further evidence of his capabilities as a producer and songwriter, reminding us that sometimes it's about laying off of perfection and laying into the performance.
