Rihanna “California King Bed” Lyrics

Intro

Instrumental

Verse 1

Chest to chest (Chest to chest)

Nose to nose (Nose to nose)

Palm to palm

We were always just that close (Just that close)

Wrist to wrist (Wrist to wrist)

Toe to toe (Toe to toe)

Lips that felt just like the inside of a rose

Pre-chorus

So how come when I reach out my finger

It feels like more than a distance between us.

 Chorus

In this California king bed

We’re ten thousand miles apart

I’ve been California wishing on these stars

For your heart, for me

My California king

Verse 2

Eye to eye (Eye to eye)

Cheek to cheek (Cheek to cheek)

Side by side

You were sleeping next to me (Oh, next to me)

Arm in arm

Dusk to dawn

With the curtains drawn

And a little last night on these sheets

Pre-chorus

So how come when I reach out my fingers

It seems like more than a distance between us

Chorus

In this California king bed

We’re ten thousand miles apart

I’ve been California wishing on these stars

For your heart, for me

My California king

Bridge

Just when I felt like giving up on us

You turned around and gave me one last touch

That made everything feel better

And even then, my eyes got wetter

So confused, wanna ask you if you love me

But I don’t wanna seem so weak

Maybe I’ve been California dreaming

Hey, hey, hey, hey

Chorus

In this California king bed

We’re ten thousand miles apart

Been California wishing on these stars

For your heart, for me

My California king

Instrumental

My California king

Chorus/Outro

In this California king bed

We’re ten thousand miles apart

I’ve been California wishing on these stars

For your heart, for me

My California king
