Lyrics

Home (music by Eduard Glumov, lyrics by Vivian Pine)

I left my home in Pittsburgh
Headed for L.A.
Seeking fame and fortune
Brought my two months pay.

From the desert to the ocean
I could see the smog filled line
Heard there's work in Hollywood
Near Hollywood and Vine.

I heard about the casting couch
And beware of those who prey
On guys and girls from out of town
No matter what I'll stay.

Where people come from everywhere
With every kind of dream
This town can make or break you
Regardless of your scheme.

Living in this apartment
Off Franklin Avenue
Nothing fancy, nothing new
Doesn't even have a view.

Life's a little crazy
In Hollywood Boulevard
Some days I feel real lazy
Laying in my backyard.

Twenty years has gone by
Still waiting for my dream.
This town can make or break you
Regardless of your scheme.

I got a call from Pittsburgh
Dad died just yesterday
Although he'd live forever
How sad I am today.

Still living in this apartment
Off Franklin Avenue
Nothing fancy, nothing new
Doesn't even have a view.

Life's a little crazy
In Hollywood Boulevard
Some days I feel real lazy
Laying in my backyard.


Now I'm pushing 50
Watching the years go by.
How could I leave my family,
Without even saying goodbye.

I died last night in a gutter
On Franklin Avenue.
How sad my life has been
In an apartment without a view.


Cops called my son in Frisco
To tell him the sad news
He just left home like I did
And he never had a clue.

Living in this apartment
Off Franklin Avenue
Nothing fancy, nothing new
Doesn't even have a view.

Life's a little crazy
In Hollywood Boulevard
Some days I feel real lazy
Laying in my backyard.
