I said “goodnight L.A.”
Cause I’m awake in my room
I’ve been up for 38 hours
And it don’t look like sleep’s coming soon
Cause I could break like a bird
Or I could swallow the sea
It seems like the daylight is coming
And no one is watching but me

But I don’t mind the dark
Discovering the day
Cause the night is a beautiful bright blue and gray
What brings me down now is love
Cause I can never get enough
And what brings me down now is love
Cause I can never get enough of love

And it’s a dangerous time
For a heart on a wire
Shuttled from station to station
Noisily not knowing why
So I put my head on the ground
And the sky is a wheel
Spinning these days into things that I’ve lost
But you can keep all the years

But I don’t mind the days
Gone rolling away
Cause all this sunlight feels warm on my face today
But what brings me down now is love
Cause I can never get enough
What brings me down now is love
Cause I can never get enough
Never get enough
Never get enough no no
Never get enough of love
I can never get enough of love

What brings me, brings me down now is love
Cause I can never get enough of love
I can never get enough of love …
I can never ever get enough I can never get enough of love
