  • As if it wasn't enough that I was always there for you
    I will always wait
    It's a sunny day, I built a house for you
    I've gotten my own car
    I've gotten my own style
    I've got another scene
    I've gotten lovely friends
    I have lovely friends
    And nothing's free
    So I wonder

    I'm living in L.A
    Won't you come some time
    Waking up and smiling times
    You make fall out of line
    And into love

    Every time I think about the way I used to laugh
    I'm swimming in the sun
    If there's only room for one, I'd give you half
    I'm having my own fun, looking out for number one
    I'm having parties, see
    I've gotten lonely friends
    They are only friends
    Means nothing to me
    So I wonder

    I'm living in L.A
    Won't you come some time
    Waking up and smiling times
    You make fall out of line
    And into love

    I'm calling, calling to say I don't care
    Oh, oh, I'm calling, calling to say that I wish you were here
    If you were here

    I'm living in L.A
    Won't you come some time
    Waking up and smiling times
    You make fall out of line
    And into love Writer/s: JEFF TROTT, LEIGHTON MEESTER, RYAN PETERSEN
