lyrics

SINGER-SONGWRITER

i met you on my way to hollywood
you asked me to hold on, i said i would
FC by virtue of your will i hold on to you still
F AmGC the nights are bad & the days are just as good

you crawled in through my window after dark
your second show had torn you apart
you said you had to quit
i talked you out of it
we slept in late & i had played my part

your secrets walk the boards on the stage
& curtains drawn, your voice in a rage
i know you didn't mean
to ruin everything
i'm sorry if i got in your way

you told me i was your only safe bet
& then you told me the truth in a voice filled with regret
the critics always state
that you were not that great
but i swear it was your best performance yet
