"L A Song (Out of This Town)" Written by Beth Hart
She hangs around the boulevard She’s a local girl with local scars She got home late she got home late She drank so hard the bottle ached
And she tried and she tried And she tried and she tried But nothing’s clear in a bar full of lies So she takes and she takes She takes and she takes She understands when she gives it away
She says man I gotta get outta this town Man I gotta get outta this pain Man I gotta get outta this town Outta this town and out of L.A.
She's so ashamed she's so ashamed She knows heaven don't want her anyway She left a note right by the phone Don’t leave a message ’cause this ain’t no home
And she cried and she cried And she cried and she cried She cried so long her tears ran dry Then she laughed and she laughed She laughed and she laughed ‘Cause she knew she was never coming back
She said man I’m gonna get outta this town Man I’m gonna get outta this pain Man I’m gonna get outta this town Outta this town and out of L.A.
It’s all she loves It’s all she hates It’s all too much for her to take She can’t be sure Just where it ends Or where the good life begins
So she took a train she took a train To a little old town without a name She met a man he took her in But fed her all the same bullshit again
‘Cause he lied and he lied And he lied and he lied He lied like a salesman selling flies So she screamed and she screamed And she screamed and she screamed It’s a different place but the same old thing
It’s all I love It’s all I hate It’s all too much for me to take I can’t be sure Where it begins Or if the good life lies within
So she said Man I gotta get out of this town Yeah now I gotta get back on that train Man I gotta get out of this town I’m outta my pain So I’m going back to L.A.
