Leaving Los Feliz

Album: Uptown Special (2015)

  • I'm on the guest list down at Paul's Baby Grand
    That hipster doorman he don't know who I am
    But my studied aloofness is proof I belong so I pass

    Some girls are pieced like Krylon bombs on the walls
    Some cut the line to cut the lines in the stalls
    On the floor is the border between paradise and the fall

    I'm leaving Los Feliz
    Day after tomorrow
    I'm over the scenesters
    I'm leaving Los Feliz
    Day after tomorrow
    I'm leaving Los Feliz

    I cruise the room without attracting a glance
    My Ksubi jeans are more like armor than pants
    But I don't want to go just yet so I suppose I should dance

    The music wobbles between rapture and dread
    Like a divine name that can never be said
    And I shoot a pretend documentary inside my head

    I'm leaving Los Feliz
    Day after tomorrow
    I'm over the scenesters
    I'm leaving Los Feliz
    Day after tomorrow
    I'm leaving Los Feliz

    I'm young enough to know I'm too young to quit
    I'm old enough to want to get over it
    But the yearning is timeless and mine is as deep as the pit

    I'm leaving Los Feliz
    Day after tomorrow
    I'm over the scenesters
    I'm leaving Los Feliz
    Day after tomorrow
    I'm leaving Los Feliz Writer/s: Chris Vatalero, Emile Haynie, Jeff Bhasker, Kevin Parker, Mark Chabon, Mark Ronson
