Michael Stanley – After Hollywood lyrics

From "Coming Up For Air", 1996, Intersound Music

She smiles like it's costing her money
She laughs like she's wasting her time
Just a small town girl all alone
on the edge of the night
with a boy back home wondering
does she think of him tonight...

Is there life after Hollywood
Is there love after all
Is there life after Hollywood
If there is, please call...

She said someday she'd be somebody
and everyone they'll know her name
Down the boulevard, running
hard, chasing after that dream
Ah, but in this town things are
not ever quite what they seem...



She's over the line and they
know it
She'll do anything just for a taste
Too much too soon and she
knows it
One more former pretty face...
