Hollywood Heroes

Hollywood Heroes
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Smoke

Hollywood heroes
Walk the streets at night
Lookin’ for a streetlamp
To cast them in a Dylanesque light
Always having fun
Genius on the run

Markin’ my days with old Varieties
Circlin’ the ads, lookin’ for society’s
Fair haired boy, here I am
But your fair haired boy’s
Becomin’ a grey haired man
Waitin’ for the day, waitin’ for the day, waitin’ for the day
Waitin’ for the day, waitin’ for the day, waitin’ for the day
Waitin’ for the day to make all my dreams come true
Waitin’ for the day to make all my dreams come true

Hollywood heroes
Droppin’ names of people they almost know
Lookin’ for a heroine, a happy endning
And their very own picture show
Smoking visibly foreign cigarettes
Doing things for reactions that they get

Markin’ my days with old Varieties
Circlin’ the ads, lookin’ for society’s
Fair haired boy, here I am
But your fair haired boy’s
Becomin’ a grey haired man
Waitin’ for the day, waitin’ for the day, waitin’ for the day
Waitin’ for the day, waitin’ for the day, waitin’ for the day
Waitin’ for the day to make all my dreams come true
Waitin’ for the day to make all my dreams come true
