We lost Hollywood that day

with that choice made,

maybe it was a mistake

because he didn't stay

and we look outside

at the rain, washing over,

washing away California

and just the regrets are left

on the sidewalk for display

to him, to you, to me

and the waves roll by

but continue until lost

out of sight, out of mind

and what will be left

is just that day in July

when love changed everything

and we lost Hollywood.
