Today it rained in L.A.
Smog's been beaten down for awhile
Drove up a hill where I could feel the ocean
And see for miles
Feels like the top of the world
Right here the world's all mine

[Chorus]
Here I lie watching the cars on the highway
You're one of those lights that's driving away
I'm standing in the dark wondering where you are
I'm leaving my heart here in Echo Park

Today you said you were leaving
Couldn't let you see me cry
You can take what you want to
But won't let you take my pride
Feels like the top of the world
Right here the world's all mine

[Chorus]
Here I lie watching the cars on the highway
You're one of those lights that's driving away
I'm standing in the dark wondering where you are
I'm leaving my heart here in Echo Park

And the cars look smaller from here
And the sky looks bigger from here
And now that everything is clear
Everything falls apart...

[Chorus]
Here I lie watching the cars on the highway
You're one of those lights that's driving away
I'm standing in the dark wondering where you are
Wondering where you are... in Echo Park
In Echo Park!
