“But how many corners do I have to turn?
How many times do I have to learn,
all the love I have is in my mind?”

Los Angeles love-a-by
(by me)

We hold cards to our chest
look up to find that lucky star
seeing nothing
in the light-polluted sky

you tell me “I can see them”
strung together and shimmering blue
just another of those
beautiful lies
I so want to believe

We are on borrowed time
stuck somewhere between
a you and a me
wishing for a heart less traveled

I tell you “I can hear them”
melancholic melody from this city’s angels
just a bit of let’s pretend
for broken lovers
who are still just hanging on
