Sometimes I wish that I could stop the clock from turning
And spend the weekend lost inside your eyes
Somehow I wish I could halt the roses burning
‘Til I can make you mine

From the first time I saw you at that coffee shop on Melrose
They were playing “Hey Jude” & we both sang along
Could’ve talked forever
Had a thousand cups of coffee
I hated that my flight was taking off

And if I had the time
And I could live a different life
And if this plane would fly
Over the California sky
I’d be with you tonight
Ohhhhh
I’d be with you tonight
Ohhhhh

I put my headphones on & went right to the Beatles
Looked out the window, saw your face amongst the stars
Ten hours ’til London & I wondered if you’d been here
And if you know you caught my heart

From the first time I saw you at that coffee house on Melrose
With your skinny black jeans & your long blonde hair
Could’ve talked forever
Had a thousand cups of coffee
Instead of being ten thousand feet above nowhere

And if I had the time
And I could live a different life
And if this plane would fly
Over the California sky
I’d be with you tonight
Ohhhhh
I’d be with you tonight
Ohhhhh

I wanna take you up to Malibu
I wanna hold your hand in Griffith Park
I wanna dance with you in Hollywood
And kiss your lips under the stars

And if I had the time
And I could live a different life
And if this plane would fly
Over the California sky
I’d be with you tonight
Ohhhhh
I’d be with you tonight
Ohhhhh
I’d be with you tonight
Ohhhhh
I’d be with you tonight
I’d be with you tonight
