Neil Young – L.A. lyrics
In a matter of time,
There'll be a friend of mine
Gonna come to the coast,
You're gonna see him
Up close for a minute or two
While the ground cracks under you.

By the look in your eyes
You'd think that it was a surprise
But you seem to forget
Something somebody said
About the bubbles in the sea
And an ocean full of trees.

And you now, L. A.
Uptight,
City in the smog,
City in the smog.
Don't you wish that
You could be here too?
Don't you wish that
You could be here too?
Don't you wish that
You could be here too?

Well, it's hard to believe
So you get up to leave
And you laugh at the door
That you heard it all before
Oh it's so good to know
That it's all just a show for you.

But when the suppers are planned
And the freeways are crammed
And the mountains erupt
And the valley is sucked
Into cracks in the earth
Will I finally be heard by you.

L. A.
Uptight,
City in the smog,
City in the smog.
Don't you wish that
You could be here too?
Don't you wish that
You could be here too?
Don't you wish that
You could be here too?
