lyrics

Born on the ocean
Raised on the beach
My daddy raised me right cause my mom was out of reach
But that's all good 'cause I really moved on
I'm sitting here today while I'm singing this song
I told my daddy
This place was wrong
Come on now poppa lets move-on out a long
We came here to the California sun
And now thats the place where I know that I belong

(Ohhh) It wasn't always that easy
(Ohhh) I found a way to keep breathing
(Ohhh) Everyones got their problems
(But I) Tried my hardest to solve them

Now I'm here, feeling good I love the atmosphere
Now more clouds, now that the skies are clear
Writing a letter to Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara

One-way tickets for me and my dad
Going to Cali and we ain't coming back
I remember the first night
When we slept in the car
New people, new language, but home wasn't far
I adapted quickly, found love and friends
From a scared little boy, to a brave young man
I know what its like, to be in pain
So I promised myself it wouldn't happen again

(Ohhh) Everything that you gave me
(Ohhh) All the ways that you saved me
(Ohhh) We needed something brand new
(So I...) Take this moment to thank you

Now I'm here, feeling good I love the atmosphere
No more clouds, now that the skies are clear
Writing a letter to Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara

I just want to thank you
You know what its like to give someone everything they have ever wanted?
A home, love, friends?
Not only for me, but for my father
It means a lot to me, I owe you the world
I don't think you really do understand
What you have done for me, how great it is
I'm happy
Sincerely yours,
Antoine Allain
