LA Lyrics

[Chorus: Joshua Bassett]
I just gotta get out of LA
I've been thinking of running away
I just gotta get out of this town
Lately everyone's bringing me down
I've been making a run for my life
I'm not sure if I'll make it tonight
Guess I've run out of things I can say
I just gotta get, I just gotta get out of LA

[Verse 1: Joshua Bassett]
When I was young
My father told me not to cry in front of my mom
Said, "It's time to grow up, " oh-oh
And now that I'm older
I couldn't tell you the last time I cried if I want
No time not to be on
So I put on a show, slap on a smile
Don't let 'em know you're not doing all too fine
Well, I'll be fine

[Chorus: Joshua Bassett]
I just gotta get out of LA
I've been thinking of running away
I just gotta get out of this town
Lately everyone's bringing mе down
I've been making a run for my life
I'm not sure if I'll makе it tonight
Guess I've run out of things I can say
I just gotta get, I just gotta get out of LA

[Verse 2: Joshua Bassett]
Everyone comes here
But nobody leaves
Yeah, we're all only actors
No one's actually happy
It's all "Who do you know?" and "When did you know them?"
Not "Where you're from?" but "Where are you going?"
"How can you help me get to where I need?"
When everything is going right, they're on your side
But just as your luck runs out, they're harder to find

[Chorus: Joshua Bassett]
I just gotta get out of LA
I've been thinking of running away
I just gotta get out of this town
Lately everyone's bringing me down
I've been making a run for my life
I'm not sure if I'll make it tonight
Guess I've run out of things I can say
I just gotta get, I just gotta get out of LA

[Outro: Joshua Bassett]
Oh, I just gotta get out of LA
I just gotta get out of LA
Oh-oh
I just gotta get, I just gotta get
