Out of L.A. 03:14
A driving hot day The whisky warms my body Out through the desert We’re passing means we’re on our way We’re on our way out of LA The snowy Converse Melt on me while I’m walking So sick and broken Not gonna make it past halfway We’re on our way out of LA On and on and on and on and on and on we won’t be long And on and on and on and on and on and on we don’t be long, we won’t belong Basements Wisconsin The Abbey Lounge in Boston A floor to sleep on A two-month bender so I say We’re on our way out of LA On and on and on and on and on and on we won’t be long And on and on and on and on and on and on we don’t belong, we won’t be long, we don’t belong, we won’t belong Hey hey hey, Hey hey hey NO oh oh, no oh No concrete ocean Nobody telling me to But we keep looking For those we’ve lost along the way While on our way out of LA We won’t be long, we won’t be long, we don’t belong, we won’t be long, don’t belong, won’t belong!

Don’t you think you’re a bit too grey Inviting her out for a coffee Enamoured by pictures you paint Spontaneous lust so naïve Making out Strawberries and skinny swimming Keeps coming back because she was young And that’s how you like them to stay Hold me hold me Tell me I’m the only One I want to 17 and lonely I want you I want you All to myself That’s what he told me Casual you ask her to play Illusions of romance burning Innocent but still no mistakes Cause she smelled his last girl victim Sneaking out Heart pounding her bare feet racing Dangerously close to her last chance Cause he almost got her to stay Hold me hold me Tell me I’m the only One I want to 17 and lonely I want you I want you All to myself That’s what he told me Hold me hold me Tell me I’m the only One I want to 17 and lonely 17 She’s just 17 He knows what works he put out the bait She bites again unsuspecting He’s beautiful such a worldly face She’s thinking he’ll be her teacher Figured out She’s soft and she thinks you’re worth it Keeps coming back each time more jaded We wonder what made her that way We wonder what made her that way Hold me hold me Tell me I’m the only One I want to 17 and lonely I want you I want you All to myself That’s what he told me Hold me hold me Tell me I’m the only One I want to 17 and lonely I want you I want you All to myself That’s what he told me 17

It must be how you look When you woke up Or got choked up Ruby eyes bloodshot See the way you can’t sit still With no mention But attention For a dead flower So I write write write All the things I didn’t miss And despite spite spite My conclusion is Nobody wants you Nobody wants you Like I do It must be what you said Just the wrong time To be laughing What goes through that head And you won’t just act you age So you dance it Too romantic Put me on display So I write write write All the reasons I should quit Change my mind mind mind Cause my conclusion is Nobody wants you Nobody wants you Like I do Like I do Like I do Excuses, abuses You’ve used me up My patience, can’t take it I’ve had enough It must be meant to be When you make up From the breakup So now I see It must me how you looked When you woke –up Right here next to me I made a list you found it And you left and said we’re through So I’m here outside your window In the dark and calling you It opens hear you breathing My fingers through you hair Tell me Tell me Tell me Tell me Nobody wants you Nobody wants you Like I do Like I do Like I do I do I do I do I do I do I do
