L.A.
Elliott Smith


The gentleman's in the lane,
Spinning his hat on a cane
Stepping out, out for change
"Good morning all, it's a beautiful day"

The generals are winning a war
Seemed suicidal before
You came alone, now
I'll protect you, long as you stay

L.A.
Morning had to come
You'll be walking in the sun
Living in the day
But last night i was about to throw it all away

If patience started a band,
I'd be her biggest fan
Look at me, i'm talking to you
I don't want the lead in your play

The star's just a part of the scene
The gentleman in green
Paying off, out on the street
I can't go home, it's not on my way

L.A.
Things are never done
Car's parked in the sun
Living in the day
But last night i was about to throw it all away
Last night i was about to throw it all away
Last night i was about to throw it all away
Last night i was about to throw it all away
