lyrics

Comin’ back to California, I’m in love with California
California, I’m in love with you
I’ll give all my lovin’ to you
I’ll give all my best years to you
I’ll give everything I’ve got to you
When it’s over, California, I’ll be angry California
California, if you don’t come true
I believe you, California
I believed you, California
California, I believe in you

And I’ve got my feet to the fire

It’s not as if I’m from here
I mean, my family’s not from here
I lost my train of thought again, I’m lost
The railroad was amazing, the people really loved it
The railroad is amazing once again

And dogs are so protective, dogs are so objective
Dogs are so secure in what they know
While everybody’s Moses and everybody’s Jesus
And everybody’s meaner than a dog
Everybody’s meaner than a dog

And I’ve got my feet to the fire

I think I thought that she was nice
I mean, I know that she was nice
I saw her belly burning in the glow
It’s not as if I’d turn it down
It’s only that, when she’s around
I think I’ve found a person I can die with

So maybe I’m too serious
I’m serious, delirious, deliriously serious, I know
And you are so on top of it
You got it all on top of it
I’d love to see you making love or killing
Making love or killing

And I’ve got my feet to the fire

It’s not as if I’m from here
I mean, my family’s not from here
I lost my train of thought again, I’m lost

about

Pesky J. Nixon Boston, Massachusetts

Bombastic but brilliant, these Brothers from New England exude a genuine musical authenticity and mirth on stages up and down the East Coast. Drawing influences from contemporary urban balladeers, rowdy southern bluegrass, and the sardonic yet wry wit of New England's localized folk scenes, Pesky J. Nixon (PJN) creates an atmosphere both inviting and challenging for audiences. ... more
