lyrics

In my hand there is a promise
in Hollywood there is a starlet
I dream about East Los Angeles
she don't sleep so she won't dream of forgiveness

Streetlights seep in through motel curtains drawn tight
rolling wheels of the passing truck sweep through the night
and I lay awake and pretend none of it's real
it's just a punch line for a joking politician;
popcorn stand in the carnival made for children

In her hand she holds a notice
addressed from someplace back East all but forgotten
and she thinks about the river grass in Memphis
but she don't read so she won't feel it's kindness

In my hand there is a promise
in Hollywood there is an actress
I dream about Los Angeles
she don't sleep so she won't dream of forgiveness
