  • Hello, my beautiful friend
    Did you get the money that your mother sent?
    Your pictures don't make sense
    Are you happy or do you just pretend?
    You live in a town made by movie stars and educated hearts
    Might sound like Amy Winehouse singing in your car
    Do you wanna play that part?
    Wear a dress your record label bought you
    Fall in love with some Californian boy

    Fool me, did you think you could
    You don't belong in Hollywood, no no

    Hey kids, look at my face
    I'm sick and tired of being somebody that you hate
    Gee whiz, pack all my bags
    I'll buy a first class seat direct to L.A., yes
    No boy, I'll be a music star
    I'll buy a Jaguar
    And every joke I tell, you're the one's who laugh
    Beverly boulevard
    One day we'll be standing there face to face
    But you won't see the tears beneath my Prada shades

    Fool you oh I thought I could
    I don't belong in Hollywood, no no

    Say what you wanna say
    How people change and there's no point reminiscing
    It's 3AM and I'm still awake
    I keep thinking babe, my phone's vibrating

    Fool me, did you think you could
    Come back to America
    I should have loved you when I could
    Oh, we're hopelessly misunderstood
    We don't belong in Hollywood
    No, we don't belong in Hollywood, no no Writer/s: Tom Peter Odell
