Sunset Blvd. Cd 2
Joe:sure, I came out here
To make my name
Wanted my pool, my dose of fame
Wanted my parking space at Warner's.
But, after a year
A one-room hell
A Murphy bed
A rancid smell
Wallpaper peeling at the corners
Secretive and rich, a little scary.
Waiting there to swallow the unwary.
Dreams are not enough
To win a war
Out here they're always keeping score
Beneath the tan the battle rages.
Smile a rented smile
Fill someone's glass
Kiss someone's wife
Kiss someone's ass
We do whatever pays the wages.
Getting here is only the beginning
Once you've won you have to go on winning
You think I've sold out
Dead right I've sold out
I've just been waiting
For the right offer.
Five-star room service.
And if I'm honest
I like the lady
I can't help being
Touched by her folly
I'm trading water,
Taking her money
Watching her sunset
Well, I'm a writer
L.A.'s changed a lot
Over the years
Since those brave goldrush pioneers
Came in their creaky covered wagons
Far as they could go
End of the line.
Their dreams were yours,
Their dreams were mine
But in those dreams
Were hidden dragons.
Swamped with every kind of false emotion.
Just like you we'll wind up in the ocean.
She was sinking fast
I threw a rope
Now I have suits
And she has hope
It seemed an elegant solution
One day this must end,
It isn't real,
Still, I'll enjoy
A hearty meal
Before tomorrow's execution.
Destination for the stonyhearted.
Everyone's forgotten how they started
Here on Sunset Boulevard
