Song 2 of Tip of the Sword begins with a genuine desire to escape the reality of life. Sarah had taken me over, and left nothing for anyone else. The band was really getting pissed off at me. I used to practice and work on new songs and lyrics almost all day every day. But my need to show myself as a responsible adult to Sarah had replaced everything else. I got a full time job at a factory that I had to ride a 10 speed bike to for about 45 minutes each way. Then, when I got home, the only thing I wanted to do was be with Sarah. And the band got pissed. My friends got pissed. Everybody felt like I had abandoned them. I was such a party animal and fun to be around in those days (although I was pretty obnoxious at times and can still be to this day).

But my past caught up to me and circumstances made me want to leave. To run away. Sarah and I started talking about moving to California. I had been there before and knew the area. All I wanted to do was give Sarah everything, and be free of my troubles. So, we were Talkin’ ’bout California for a couple of months, then we decided to go. We made our plans to leave just after the July 4th holiday.


 

Talkin bout California (Lyrics)
by Jerry Boutot

Baby hold me – baby help me
The world is coming down on me
The boys are mad – my new girl
has taken all my time from the band
And this ghost wants my blood
to keep the devil fed

I know you need me, I know you love me
I won’t go anywhere without you
But if I stay I’ll have to pay
do you love me enough to go too?

All I want to do is give everything to you
Let’s get away and start a new life
There’s something we can do

It must be a place where I can be free
To love you and give you everything
Far away – far across the sky
Hey! I know a place where the sun shines high
And it’s always warm like the day we met
Remember that day? I’ll never forget
If we live in a place where it’s always warm
Just like the day we met

Talkin bout California
Surfers ridin the waves
The party never ends
The sun sets on the sea
Talkin bout California
We’ll make a life together
Just think of what time will bring
Happy till the end of forever
Talkin’ ’bout California

All I want to do is give everything to you
Let’s get away and start a new life
There’s something we can do

Talkin bout California
Surfers ridin the waves
The party never ends
The sun sets on the sea
Talkin bout California
We’ll make a life together
Just think of what time will bring
Happy till the end of forever
Talkin bout California
