Lyric "L.A."

[Verse 1: Elliott Smith]
The gentleman's in the lane
Spinning his hat on a cane
Stepping out, out for change
Good morning all, it's a beautiful day

The generals are winning a war
Seemed suicidal before
You came along, now
I'll protect you, long as you stay

[Chorus 1]
L.A., morning had to come
I'd be walking in the sun
Living in the day
But last night I was about to throw it all away

[Verse 2]
If patience started a band
I'd be her biggest fan
Look at me, I'm talking to you
I don't want the lead in your play

The star's just a part of the scene
The gentleman in green
Paying off, out on the street
I can't go home, it's not on my way

[Chorus 2]
L.A., things are never done
Car's parked in the sun
Living in the day
But last night I was about to throw it all away
Last night I was about to throw it all away (x3)

Elliott Smith

Steven Paul Smith (August 6, 1969 – October 21, 2003) was an American singer, songwriter, and musician. Smith was born in Omaha, Nebraska, raised primarily in Texas, and lived for much of his life in Portland, Oregon, where he first gained popularity. Smith's primary instrument was the guitar, though he was also proficient with piano, clarinet, bass guitar, drums, and harmonica. Smith had a distinctive vocal style, characterized by his "whispery, spiderweb-thin delivery", and used multi-tracking to create vocal layers, textures, and harmonies.
