Lyrics

Goodbye to Hollywood

Written By: Brent Roske

We walked among the roses
You could even say we ran
With all the time we spent there
it seems we forgot the stakes at hand

We sang every song and we danced every dance
We knew the time was short there
We'd drown in the romance

Say goodbye to Hollywood
Say goodbye to all of those broken dreams
But if you ever make it to Hollywood
you better make sure to rehearse the final scene

The days seemed to last forever when we had nowhere else to go
I tried to tell them how happy we were but I guess they'll never know
We couldn't wait to hear the gunshot to start our race with time
The entire universe was our racetrack and that suited us just fine

4 long years of hard work of making friends and drinking beer all day
We're all saying you better remember my face cuz in 5 years I'm gonna own this place
She's gonna go to med school - he's gonna pack a bag and go to France
I'm heading off to Dreamtown - I guess we've got time for one last dance

The days are getting shorter now but there's one thing I must admit
That I tried to fight this battle with a legion of regret
You see, I almost had it
I had it in my hands
I just couldn't hold on to it

We've got dreams
And we've got destruction
They're in the same breath when you're at this hope-filled age

Say goodbye to Hollywood
Say goodbye to all of those broken dreams
But if you ever make it to Hollywood
could you try to save a spot for me?
