Goodbye Ojai

Tears don’t cry by themselves you know
No goodbyes without hellos
There’s got to be a reason
Got to be a reason

Drove all night up the coast to your house
‘Cuz you said your were goin’ out of town
I left box on your doorstep
with your jacket and records and a note saying sorry

(CHORUS)
Goodbye Ojai
It’s been good to know you
Can’t take one more sunrise
Bein’ someone that I barely know
Goodbye blue eyes
Don’t take it personal
It’s just everything you did
You did wrong

Feel the ocean’s salts on my tongue
Might be starting back at one
But I can taste the freedom
I can taste the freedom

You might not see yourself that way
But that’s a pill you’re gonna have to take
‘Cuz that box on your doorstep
With your jacket and records
Was all I had left to give you

(CHORUS)
Goodbye Ojai
It’s been good to know you
Can’t take one more sunrise
Bein’ someone that I barely know
Goodbye blue eyes
Don’t take it personal
It’s just everything I did
I did wrong

What do you want me to say
Reach into my pocket and take out
Everything that you never gave out
When you never gave me anything
CHORUS)
So, goodbye Ojai
It’s been good to know you
Can’t take one more sunrise
Bein’ someone that I barely know
Goodbye blue eyes
Don’t take it personal
It’s just everything we did
We did wrong
