lyrics

LEAVING L.A.

I CAME HERE IN SEARCH OF SALVATION
TURNS OUT THERE'S NONE TO BE FOUND
IN THIS CITY OF ANGELS
THE DEMONS KEEP DRAGGIN' ME DOWN

BUT I THOUGHT I SAW JESUS ON SUNSET
WHO KNOWS, I MAY HAVE BEEN RIGHT
OR MAYBE I WAS SLEEPWALKIN'
DREAMING IN BROAD DAYLIGHT

JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE IN THIS CIRCUS
I'VE BEEN WAITIN' AROUND FOR MY DAY
BUT THE TIME MARCHES ON AND A SADNESS
STEALS THAT AWAY
SO TONIGHT I'LL BE LEAVING L.A.

YEAH, I THOUGHT I HAD ALL OF THE ANSWERS
I CAME TO THIS TOWN WITH A PLAN
BUT I FOUND OUT THAT NONE OF IT MATTERED
WHEN YOU SLIPPED THROUGH MY HANDS

I WAS TOO BUSY TO NOTICE
HIGH ON OZONE, HEAD IN THE CLOUDS
YOU WERE LONG GONE
BY THE TIME I CAME BACK DOWN

I DON'T KNOW HOW I'M GONNA FIND YOU
HELL, I CAN'T FIND MYSELF IN THIS HAZE
BUT I'VE FINALLY RUN OUT OF ANY GOOD REASON TO STAY
SO TONIGHT I'LL BE LEAVING L.A.
I'M LEAVING L.A.

WHEN I LOST YOU YOU, LOST ME, WE LOST IT
OUR SHIP RAN AGROUND
I DON'T KNOW WHO I AM HERE WITHOUT YOU
JUST SOME FOOL HANGIN' 'ROUND

JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE IN THIS CIRCUS
I'D BEEN WAITIN' AROUND FOR MY DAY
BUT TIME MARCHES ON AND THE SADNESS
IT STOLE YOU AWAY
SO TONIGHT I'LL BE LEAVING L.A.
I'M LEAVING L.A.
