Long Time Comin'

from by Hollywood Trash



Another cautionary tale. Written in large part while waiting for Johnny Hickman to perform in a coffee house somewhere in Hollywood. Also an escape fantasy. Cheers to Guy Clarke. I know what you mean brother.

I've been nothing but trouble since I got in here
I asked for her number and a bottle of beer
She said man I've heard that line before
And you know it don't work anymore
Never thought that I'd end up this way
All this time out here and nothing to say

Well I've made my fortunes now
Still I end up all alone again somehow
It's been a long time comin' but I guess I'm leaving town

Well my first wife she was probably the best
But I fucked that one up just like all the rest
Left her for a movie fan
Fake tits and a spray on tan
And it's funny how it all gets old
Searching for the next pot of gold

Guess I never settled down
That's the price you pay for getting off the ground
It's been a long time comin' but I guess I'm leaving town

When you sign the devil's contract it ain't like you think
There isn't a pen and there's no bottle of ink
You claw your way up nice and slow
Hurting the ones you love as you go
And your hell is what you get back
Empty parties and Hollywood trash

Well I'm packing up
And I'm heading out
Before all my bad deeds circle back around
And it's been a long time comin' but I guess I'm leaving town
