Hollywood

lyrics

This life gets harder day by day
It seems like everyone wants more
I try to compensate in other ways
I try but I just can't ignore

But the rent is due
I see tears in her eyes
It's not Hollywood
Just the best we could find

These expectations crypt all nights
It tries to steal my joi de vivre
All this pressure building day and night
Sometimes I wish that I could leave

But the rent is due
I see tears in her eyes
It's not Hollywood
Just the best we could find

And there's bills to pay
Come now baby, don't cry
It's not Hollywood
Just the best we could find

Tell me you understand
Tell me we'll be alright
Tell me we've got a plan
It's hard to keep going on
It's hard to keep being strong
When this is not the way it's meant to be
This is not where I had hoped to be

On my knees, I'm on my knees
On my knees, I'm on my knees

But the rent is due
(On my knees, I'm)
I see tears in her eyes
(On my knees, I'm)
It's not Hollywood
(On my knees, I'm)
Just the best we could find
(On my knees, I'm)
And No Second Take
(On my knees, I'm)
No way to rewind
It's not Hollywood
Just the best we could find
It's not Hollywood
Just the best we could find.
