Goodbye to Hollywood

Left my home for Hollywood – thought that I could make it good at last

Palm trees on the boulevard – see the people living hard and fast

Through the café door it seems - hills rise up above me

Watching all the broken dreams – pouring cups of coffee

 

It’s time to say my goodbyes

I’ve got to let go and learn how to fly

Goodbye to Hollywood

I’ll be free – Goodbye  

Hello to me

 

In this land of Tinsel Town - plastic smiles turn upside down offstage

Drowning pain at lonely bars - driving ‘round in fancy car parades

I sold my soul to play the part – of something I can’t feel

Writing songs not in my heart – it seems I’ve lost what’s real

 

It’s time to say my goodbyes

I’ve got to let go and learn how to fly

Goodbye to Hollywood

I’ll be free – Goodbye  

Hello to me

 

I start to feel again – and through my song I find me

I’ll live for real again with Hollywood behind me

 

It’s time to say my goodbyes

I’ve got to let go and learn how to fly

Goodbye to Hollywood

I’ll be free – Goodbye  

Hello to me
