Supertramp Gone Hollywood Lyrics

It’s just heartbreaking

I should have known that it would let me down

It’s just a mind aching

I used to dream about this town

It was a sight to see

The place to be,

Where the living is easy

And the kicks can always be found

It’s such a shame about it

I used to think that it would feel so good

But who’s to blame about it

So many creeps in Hollywood

I’m in this dumb motel

Nea the ‘Taco Bell’

Without a hope in hell

I can’t believe that I’m still around

Ain’t nothin new in my life today

Ain’t nothing true it’s all gone away

I’ve had too much cryin’, seen too much grief

I’m sick of tryin’ it’s beyond belief

I’m tired of talking on the telephone

They’re trying to tell me that they’re not at home

Ain’t nothing new in my life today

I’m tired of walking from place to place

I’ve yet to come across a friendly face

And now the words sound familiar, as them slam the door

“You’re not what we’re looking for.”

Ain’t nothing new in my life today

Ain’t nothing true it’s all gone away

If we only had time, only had time for you

If we only had time, only had time for you

If we only had time, only had time for you

It was a heartbreaking

Now I ride in the big fine car

It was mind aching

I’m the talk of the boulevard

So keep your chin up boy

Forget the pain

I know you’ll make it

If you try again

There’s no use in quitting

When the world is waiting for you
