THE TIDE POOLS OF CALIFORNIA

When you’re born in California
There are things you take for granted
The sunshine and the desert and
The forests, and the bears and the beaches

In the tide pools of California
In the memories of one little boy
In the tide pools of California
Live the memories that Time can’t destroy

In 1950 I was seven years old
We lived in Palmdale
Going to the beach was like
Going to Mars or Venus
Then, we moved to San Luis Obispo
Which is just inland of Morrow Bay
And Avila and Pismo Beach
I wasn’t into splashing in the waves
Running up and down in the sand
I’d get lost in the rocks
The ebb and flow of the tide
The little crabs and the sea anemones

In the tide pools of California
In the memories of one little boy
In the tide pools of California
Live the memories that Time can’t destroy

LOVE this. I first listened while finishing work earlier, back then I mainly noticed your signature lush backing vocals on the chorus (bit loud on this one maybe?). But when I listened again in comfort, able to concentrate... woah, gorgeous song.
