You Are A Good Man, Larry Ward

from by Young Sparrows



The winter faded fast this year and that's okay with me.
I never liked the icy roads that lay beneath my feet and heartbreaking notes for my eyes to read
Why does snow bury happiness at three feet deep?
We'll find a way
We'll make it out okay and hit this city like a wrecking ball,
Like ghosts, we'll never sleep.

How can you call this home
When no one here knows that you're around?

I thought I'd hate it in Los Angeles
and I swore I'd never write about California
But now it's right where I want to be so I prep myself for sadness
'Cause you'll never be a part of me.

I've swallowed enough dust (and it burns inside my lungs)
If I was where you were i'd get paid to write these songs
I do it 'cause I love it but the heartache's so cliche
Another minute in this shit-hole adds up to losing all my days.

I guess you'll stay all alone
'Cause you're never ever leaving this sad and sorry town.

The dress you wore that night was scandalous
Well I thought, I'd take the time to get to know you
But now I'm back at home alone with me
Will I ever head that way again to California?

I thought I'd hate it,
You'll never be a part of me
