(eric carmen)

I've been up too high
I've been down too low
I've been searchin' for somethin'
With nowhere to go
Thought I'd make it alone
But I'm so far from home
In a town full of desperate fools

Oh, the sun beats down
On the l.a. scene
But you can't feel the cold
When the grass looks so green
And the games that I've played
Were not wort what I paid
In a town full of desperate fools

I've been takin' my life
One day at a time
Tryin' to piece it all together
But I know in my mind
That I'm startin' to be
What they want me to be
And I wonder sometimes
What's becoming of me

I've been takin' my life
One day at a time
Tryin' to piece it all together
But I know in my mind
That I'm startin' to be
What they want me to be
And I wonder sometimes
What's becoming of me

'cause I've been up too high
I've been down too low
I've been searchin' for somethin'
With nowhere to go
And I suppose it's been fun
But I guess I'm just one
In a town full of desperate fools
A town full of desperate fools
