There's a harvest each saturday night
At the bars filled with perfume and hitching a ride
A place you can stand for one night and get gone
It's clear this conversation ain't' doing a thing
Cause these boys only listen to me when i sing
And i don't feel like singing tonight
All the same songs

Here in these deep city lights
Girl could get lost tonight
I'm finding every reason to be gone
Nothing here to hold on to
Could i hold you?

The situation's always the same
You got your wolves in their clothes whispering Hollywood's name
Stealing gold from the silver they see
But it's not me

Here in these deep city lights
Girl could get lost tonight
I'm finding every reason to be gone
There's nothing here to hold on to
Could i hold you?

Calling out somebody save me i feel like i'm fading away
Am i gone?
Calling out somebody save me i feel like i'm fading

In these deep city lights
Girl could get lost tonight
I'm finding every reason to be gone
There's nothing here to hold on to
Could i hold on to you?

    To me this song shows a person looking for an escape because this world simply doesn't have anything for her. She is tired of the same stuff happening over and over again. She feels so tired of it that she is fading away and desperation for escape.

    the place where people are too caught up in the scene of too many coruption of souls and too much chaos, her soul and heart have no sound only when she shows talent or unquiness she can't get noticed. nobody will stare up at the moon or take a second to look up into the black pure sky from the deep city lights that they are surrounded in. she could be lost in all the rest of the croud that are lost as well, as human beings. she needs her "real" self to save her from the city where she changes too quicky and if she stays more than one night might not have anything real to hold on to the wolves might take her in and she might be the one lost screaming hollywood in the deep, bright city lights.

    Everything is the same to her. Everything is too confusing and wild for her. She feels lost and her mind just fades and she doesnt know what to do. She feels she doesnt belong. Hollywood is not for her. She neds someone to help her, someone for her to hold on to...

    this song is amazing. i agree w/ didymos its prob about how she feels lost in hollywood, like its not really where she belongs or that she doesnt fit in there, or that shes just sick of seeing all the same things over and over again
