Maybe L.A.

Written in April 1998 in Edmonton, Alberta

She stepped out the front door
She never was too sure
Where that road out front would take her
But it was gonna take her away
Maybe today
Maybe L.A.

She said it started with that feeling
Sent her mind a reeling
She’d long thought of leaving
With nothing to say
Maybe today
Maybe L.A.

Oh can you tell me mister
Just what it was that we did
Yeah we thought we were the chosen ones
But we were nothing more than kids
She said “I can’t sleep in the bed that we made,
I can’t sleep in the bed that we made…
Maybe L.A.”

She said “I wanna be where no one cares”
She ran her hands through her hair
Lit a cigarette and stared
And said, “Besides, the weather’s there,
Anyway
Maybe L.A.”

Oh can you tell me mister
Just what it was that we did
Yeah we thought we were rebels
But we were nothing more than kids
She said “I can’t sleep in the bed that we made,
I can’t sleep in the bed that we made…
Maybe L.A.”

Oh can you tell me mister
Just what it was that we did
Yeah we thought that we were rivals
But we were nothing more than kids
She said “I can’t sleep in the bed that we made,
In the script this is my character’s cue to fade…
Maybe L.A.”

Maybe L.A.
Maybe L.A.
Maybe L.A.

Oh can you tell me mister
Just what it was that we did
Yeah we thought we were chosen
But we were nothing more than kids
She said “I can’t sleep in the bed that we made,
I can’t sleep in the bed that we made…
Maybe L.A.”
