BROKEN HEADLIGHTS

It hasn't rained hard for the better part of seven months
Everyone's listening
All I see ahead of me are glistening lights
This city stays up at night
Droning along like a dissonant song by an amateur symphony
How come I can only tell you I love you when you're sleeping in the passenger seat?

And all the fast cars with the broken headlights
Run the red lights in the canyon
But I can taste it, the rain is coming
To clear the air over Los Angeles

Maybe it'll bring the hillside down
Maybe it'll flood the streets
Maybe when I tell you that I love you forever
I'm gonna make a fool of me
But I've got the windows down, the heater on my feet
And the skies are opening
It's gonna come pouring down it's gonna come pouring out I'm gonna say everything


And all the fast cars with the broken headlights
Run the red lights in the canyon
But I can taste it, the rain is coming
To clear the air over Los Angeles
The road is winding and it's barely lit
You never know how far you're really gonna get
But when you live here you just learn to get used to it
And all the fast cars and the broken headlights
And running red lights in the canyon
Now it's raining, the haze is drowning
The air is clear over Los Angeles
