Last night my house almost burned down
I would've lost everything I call my own
But I'd be okay cause I don't need much
Just my guitars and my girl

See im chasing down this dream of mine
With these big city walls in my way

It's hard when your heart doesn't pay the rent
and you push for years but you don't make a cent
You know it feels like it's true 
Like nobody cares when you live in LA

See my house got saved from the burning flames
By the firemen at my door
Sometimes this world is going to bring you pain 
Stick to your course a better life is in store

See im chasing down this dream of mine
With these big city walls in my way

It's hard when your heart doesn't pay the rent
and you push for years but you don't make a cent
You know it feels like it's true 
Like nobody cares when you live in LA

It's in these troubled times that we need each other the most
And its through these moments we all define our path

It's hard when your heart doesn't pay the rent
and you push for years but you don't make a cent
You know it feels like it's true 
Like nobody cares when you live in LA
