What I wouldn’t give right now for simple summers past, nights on the beach sitting around a bonfire while someone plays the guitar and nothing obstructing our view of the starry sky except the smoke. Sometimes I think there’s no better place in the world to live but the bay, with a big piece of property overlooking the water. A patio to sit on during the evenings while all is quiet. The smell of freshly cut grass and clean air.

I’m sorry, home is on my mind and I regret not going there for the funeral. I hope Sean understands.

 

I’d like to rest my heavy head tonight
On a bed of California stars
I’d like to lay my weary bones tonight
On a bed of California stars

I’d love to feel
Your hand touching mine
And tell me why
I must keep working on

Yes I’d give my life
To lay my head tonight on a bed
Of California stars

I’d like to dream
My troubles all away
On a bed of California stars

Jump up from my starbed
Make another day
Underneath my California stars
They hang like grapes
On vines that shine
And warm the lovers’ glass
Like friendly wine

So I’d give this world
Just to dream a dream with you
On our bed of California stars

I’d like to rest my heavy head tonight
On a bed of California stars
I’d like to lay my weary bones tonight
On a bed of California stars

I’d love to feel
Your hand touching mine
And tell me why
I must keep working on

Yes I’d give my life
To lay my head tonight on a bed
Of California stars

I’d like to dream
My troubles all away
On a bed of California stars

Jump up from my starbed
Make another day
Underneath my California stars

They hang like grapes
On vines that shine
And warm the lovers’ glass
Like friendly wine

So I’d give this world
Just to dream a dream with you
On our bed of California stars

So I’d give this world
Just to dream a dream with you
On our bed of California stars

(Dream a dream with you)
