lyrics

Wendy was born alone and wild
Playing in the city by the Bay
Twenty-two years, she’s been living here
West Coast Baby, she’s leaving on a plane.

Wendy’s wearing an old red raincoat.
Walking around in the rain
Say goodbye to California.
Nothing’s gonna be the same.
She's Leaving California

Packing her bags in the morning
Wendy, this feels just like a dream.
Leaving her life on the runway
New York City. She thinks it’s gonna be easy.

Wendy’s wearing an old red raincoat.
Walking around in the rain
Say goodbye to California.
Nothing’s gonna be the same.
She's Leaving California

And it breaks my heart to see her
Playing this silly game
No umbrella just standing in the pouring rain
The life we built together
Is like a broken picture frame
Wendy, why’d you lie
And tell me nothing’s ever gonna change

Wendy’s wearing an old red raincoat.
Walking around in the rain
Say goodbye to California.
Nothing’s gonna be the same.
She’s Leaving California
