Hollywood

I was just a young man, many years ago.
Caught a train, so many miles just to be with you.
It was all I ever wanted to do.
And you promised me the Hollywood bowl, the sun, the stars.
But by the time the Santa Anna winds would blow, I’d already lost my soul.

Hollywood, Hollywood. Famous land of Dreams.
With your movie stars and fancy cars, and big black limousine’s.
Where all the world’s a movie set, and every day’s a sunny day.
Where you pretend that you’re a movie star and then throw your life away.

See I got caught up my vices in my time with you.
And I paid the highest prices, I done almost anything I needed too.
Cause I was thinking it was me and not you.
Until I couldn’t remember who I was or why I came.
Just trying to convince myself, no matter what that everything was the same.
I just had to get better at your game.

Hollywood, Hollywood. Famous land of Dreams.
With your movie stars and fancy cars, and big black limousine’s.
Where all the world’s a movie set, and every day’s a sunny day.
Where you pretend that you’re a movie star and then throw your life away.

Well, when I came to you my dream came true and everything I ever knew
I found in the Hollywood lights.
In reality it came to me the only thing I found was real was lonely days and lonely nights.

Hollywood, Hollywood’s nothing as it seems.
In a world bizarre with plastic stars, and broken hopes and dreams.
Where all the world’s a movie set, where everyone a part to play.
And only movie stars are millionaires, and you give your heart away.

Whoa,
Where all the world’s a movie set, and everyone a part to play.
And only movie stars are millionaires, while you give your heart away.

See I was just a young man, many years ago.
Caught a train, so many miles just to be with you.
It was all I ever wanted to do.
