  • Yeah we got drunk on La Cienega Boulevard
    Taking pictures of people we thought were stars
    It's easy to give in to your heart
    When you're drunk on La Cienega Boulevard
    When the song comin' out of the speakers
    Was the band that you had on your t-shirt
    We were screamin' cause all the streets were empty
    And you kissed me, and we were

    Up all night and we were feelin' so good
    Yeah, we got a little higher than we probably should
    We were in a hotel singin' in the hallway lights
    We were strikin' the matches right down to the ashes
    Setting the world on fire, setting the world on fire

    Wrote I love you in lipstick on the mirror
    We were shoutin' out the window, like they could hear us at the pier
    Said "Do you think we'll live forever?"
    As we killed another beer
    And you wrote I love you in lipstick on the mirror
    We were laughin' until we were breathless
    Never felt anything so reckless, we were all lit up and restless
    And coming alive and we were

    Up all night and we were feelin' so good
    Yeah, we got a little higher than we probably should
    We were in a hotel singin' in the hallway lights
    We were strikin' the matches right down to the ashes
    Setting the world on fire, setting the world on fire

    (Oh, yeah, yeah)

    Up all night and we were feelin' so good
    Yeah, we got a little higher than we probably should
    We were in a hotel singin' in the hallway lights
    We were strikin' the matches right down to the ashes
    Setting the world on fire, setting the world on fire

    World all on fire
    We were setting
    The world all on fire
    We were setting
    The world all on fire
