I said, "Goodnight L.A."
Cause I'm awake in my room
I been up for thirty eight hours
And it don't look like sleep's coming soon

Cause I could break like a bird
Or I could swallow the sea
It seems like the daylight is coming
And no one is watching but me

But I don't mind the dark discovering the day
Cause the night
Is a beautiful bright blue and grey

And what brings me down now is love
Cause I can never get enough

And it's a dangerous time for a heart on a wire
Shuttled from station to station noisily
Now knowing why

So I put my head on the ground
And the sky is a wheel
Spinning these days into things that I've lost
But you can keep all the years

But I don't mind the days gone rolling away
Cause this sunlight
Feels warm on my face today

And what brings me down now is love
Cause I can never get enough of love
