Lyrics

“Hollywood & Vine”
By Rick Landers © 2020

Saw you walking down Hollywood
Hollywood and Vine
Fishnets and cigarettes
A mirror with fine white lines

I saw you in the darkness
In the fog and in the rain
Some things will never change

Years ago, you opened up
Your crazy dreams to me
You were headed for the big time
Silver screen and magazines

Now we’re living in the future
I loved you in my past
Some things don’t last

It don’t matter much
Stolen kisses when you loved too much
Sometimes you have so much to say
It can’t wait another day

I saw you all made up
Looking like a movie queen
Two strangers in the night
You in crinoline and torn blue jeans

(Instrumental Break)

It don’t matter much
Stolen kisses when you loved too much
Sometimes you just steal away
When there’s nothing left to say

I know you’re dissatisfied
With your position and your fate
All your dreams unrealized
No remains for goodness sake

I saw you in the darkness
In the fog , feeling pain
Here comes the rain

It don’t matter much
Memories of a lover’s touch
Someday you’ll just steal away
When there’s nothing left to say
Nothing left to say
You walk away
