  • Bricked up a kilo
    Paneled down in the back door
    All the while I'm riding
    To auditions I'm not getting

    Why do I keep on returning to you?

    All American jawlines
    One moment going over scene lines
    Grind the scripts
    Like teeth

    Why do I keep on returning to you?

    Swarm of TV cameras
    Click and stumble at the Chateau
    Later, I hear John's
    Body got carried out
    Ice cream was a code word
    Told to me by a code man
    These nice hotels
    I don't know your clientele

    Why do I keep on returning to you?
    Why do I keep on returning to you?
    (Give me some ice cream)
    (Give it to me now, oh, now)

    Oh, I'm in the deepest end of an empty pool
    (He's never gonna make it)
    (He's never gonna make it in L.A.)
    I'm in the deepest end of an empty pool

    I'm in the deepest end of an empty pool
    (He's never gonna make it)
    (He's never gonna make it in L.A.)
    I'm in the deepest end of an empty pool
    (He's never gonna make it)
    (He's never gonna make it in L.A.) Writer/s: Augustus Unger-Hamilton, Joe Newman, Thomas Green
