HOLLYWOOD DREAM

YOUNG AND SO PERSUASIVE.

MAYBE STARDOM BOUND.

ANOTHER HOPEFUL DREAMER,

COMES TO TINSEL TOWN.

CARRYING THE BLESSINGS,

OF THE FOLKS BACK HOME.

SMALL TOWN GIRL IN HOLLYWOOD,

FIRST TIME ON HER OWN.

DONíT LET YOUR HEAD CONFUSE YOU,

OR STOP YOU IN YOUR TRACKS.

YOU GOT YOUR PRETTY FACE

YOUR BODYíS STILL INTACT.

 

DRINK THE SWEET AND BITTER WINE.

DOINí TIME ON HOLLYWOOD AND VINE.

 

INTERVIEWS AND PROMISES,

THAT ALL FELL THROUGH.

NOW YOUíRE WAITING TABLES,

JUST FOR A WEEK OR TWO.

YOU END UP IN A CHEAP ROOM,

IN A RUNDOWN NEIGHBORHOOD.

YOUR PRIDE IS QUICKLY FADING,

YOU AINíT LOOKINí VERY GOOD.

LOCK YOUR DOOR BEHIND YOU.

YOU DONíT SLEEP WELL AT NIGHT.

EVERY SOUND AWAKES YOU

AND GRIPS YOU COLD WITH FRIGHT.

 

ONE HAND ON YOUR FOREHEAD.

ONE FOOT OUT THE DOOR.

YOU CANíT FIND ONE GOOD REASON

TO DO THIS ANYMORE.

YOU STUMBLE DOWN THE DRIVEWAY.

GET IN YOUR DADDYíS CAR.

HEAD OUT ON THE FREEWAY,

WITH ALL THE OTHER STARS.

AND THIS TIME YOU KEEP DRIVNí,

LIKE A REFUGEE IN FLIGHT.

L.A.íS FAR BEHIND YOU,

AND YOUR SWEET HOME IS IN SIGHT.

BUT THE MEMORY THAT LINGERS,

HAS BECOME A PART OF YOU.

SO VIVID IS THE IMAGE,

OF THE DRAMA YOUíVE BEEN THROUGH.
