Gone Hollywood

This song is by Supertramp and appears on the album Breakfast in America (1979).

It's just a 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
Near the Taco Bell
Without a hope in hell
I can't believe that I'm still around

Ain't nothing 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 they 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 a big fine car
It was a mind aching
Yeah, 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
