California Sunset

California Sunset
(Mark Cohen)

Northeast wind is rolling off the sea
It scatters birds and branches with its motion
I face the cold and think about Marie
Who's living by another ocean


   Save one more sunset for me, Marie
   Save one more sunset for me
   If I could be beside your diamond dancing sea
   Save one more sunset for me

Boston is a hundred shades of gray
Everything is frozen and unmoving
Wonder why I ever went away
Or what it was that needed proving

California sun it has a way
Of telling you it's easy to discover
The time to change your life, to find your way
The time to leave a gentle lover

I can see her walking on the beach
The California sunset is entrancing
She dances lightly, just beyond my reach
But here it's much too cold for dancing
