Touchdown in L.A.
Waited for what felt like half a day to emergge.
Thought I'd ask you why,
But you took it as interrogationn and brushed me aside.
Now I thiink it was fear that I saw in your eyes
Never thought much of it at the time
At ssecurity they have machines that will see right through you
I wanted to say
Something reasssuring, but words, they just got in the way.
Come on, let's take a riide
To the kind of outdoor carnival only L.A. can provide.
Venice beach sunset, hair blown in the breeze,
You shared your childhood traumma with me
There's a boardwalk psychic whose gaze will reveal your truths
Doesn't it feel good to just let it go?
Cast your fearss to the wind like a kite
And I won't give a damn, though you might
I longed to show you
That nothing between us had changed in the slightest
But I got a bit drunk and I got a bit reckless
Said some things I didn't meean to sound bad, but they did, I guess.
On your knees crawling unnder the Christmas tree
Cut your hand on a broken glass bauble
There are beautiful things that can hurt you if you're not careful
You fell asleeep on the couch beside me,
I'm still glad that you couldn't see how I cried
As the tree in the ccorner cast off its flickering light
I watched you sleeping and I thought about
My vulnerability, your vulnerability
How they converge and we merge and some things just feel right
Still, I'm ssleeping alone tonight.
