twelve intoxicated hours in west la

aka that time i thought for a second id figured out the meaning of life but then i hadnt

lyrics

we got high on venice beach on a sunny july afternoon and the freaks said what you doing here son
and i said well i dont know but id like to find out before i go but i never did
then we took a car downtown stopped for a drink in santa monica my head was spinning
and your mate tried to save a girl from her boyfriends arms we just laughed about it oh we just laughed about it

so pour me another gin grab me another beer
how could i leave here without you my dear
oh pour me another gin and grab me another beer
why would i leave here without you

then our phone rang twice but we didnt pick it up we could have called back later jumped a cab to melrose and la brea
where some old man died for a dollar or two his life up for sale and typewriter too he used to be in the movies
so i bought his stuff and i thought to myself what is life in dollars or pounds when it all burns anyway
and even with the blunt you lit the rum and coke that nearly made me sick nothings ever gonna change that

so pour me another gin grab me another beer
how could i leave here without you my dear
oh pour me another gin and grab me another beer
why would i leave here without you

back to back in hollywood with my back against the wall dive bars dancing and disaronno
she wanted me to go home with her i didnt want to go home at all cos then id have to think about it
i didnt want to have to think about it didnt want to have to think about it didnt want to have to think about didnt want to think about it
i dont want to have think about it dont want to have to think about it dont want to have to think about it dont want to have to think

so pour me another gin grab me another beer
how could i leave here without you my dear
oh pour me another gin and grab me another beer
why would i leave here without you
why would i leave here without you

and when the night was through there was nothing else left to do so i slept on a floor in westwood
