Charlie - L.A. Dreamer lyrics

Colbeck-Thomas

To the town of dreams he has come to make his mark
Just a small, small fish in a pond that's full of sharks
Well, it's sink or swim and if you wanna grow
It's not what you do, it's just who you know
So he hangs around in the clubs when the skies grow dark
At a casual glance, well, he looks real sleek
Drives a foreign car 'cause that's L.A. chic
If you look real close, well, his sneakers leak
The L.A. Dreamer
Now he rents a place that is far from Beverly Hills
And it's work all day 'cause he has to pay the bills
Every night he's out down on Sunset Strip
Being seen around all those clubs so hip
Then it's up at eight, make it through on those magic pills
At a casual glance, well, he looks real sleek
Drives a foreign car 'cause that's L.A. chic
If you look real close, well, his sneakers leak
The L.A. Dreamer
Standing where he can be seen
Stand around for long enough and
Soon he's part of the machine
Of stars and bars the L.A. dreamer schemes
In a few short weeks he is seen at every place
Just by hanging out everybody knows his face
Oh, he comes on strong like he's real big deal
Buying drinks all around, can't afford no meals
Trying oh so hard to get a start in that L.A. race
At a casual glance, well, he looks real sleek
Drives a foreign car 'cause that's L.A. chic
If you look real close, well, his sneakers leak
The L.A. Dreamer
