Hollywood (Anne's Song)

lyrics

We're gonna be big stars, you and me
We'll shine brighter than Hepburn and James Dean
So let's go to California and move this dream along
Go on ahead without me, I swear I won't be long, at all

But oh, my friend, the news ain't good
I think I missed my plane to Hollywood
I'd drive out to you if I could but I ain't got the engine in this hood
It ain't the way we hoped it'd be, but life just grabbed ahold of me
There's still hope for you and me - hold on? Hold on..

A tiny east coast suburb with a pretty little lake...who'd have thought it would be so hard to escape?
But these dreams are growing dimmer 'cause these days I hardly sleep
Ain't it funny how much money wound up mattering to me?

Watching our homemade movies, shot through a blurry lens
Now that the film is in focus, I just want to talk to my friend

But oh, my friend, the news ain't good
I think I missed my plane to Hollywood
I'd drive out to you if I could but I ain't got the engine in this hood
It ain't the way we hoped it'd be, but life just grabbed ahold of me
There's still hope for you and me - hold on?
I'm sorry that you couldn't hold on
And I wasn't there to help you hold on.

Hold on..

I can't find the words to say that I am sorry everyday.
