Sunset Strip Lyrics - Courtney Love



Review The Song (1)


Sunset Strip (North American version)

Sitting here on top of the hill
I’ve got everything I ever need from this world
Oh tonight
I got it right
Just one time

Cruising down the Sunset Strip
And there is nothing that’s not
That’s not within my grip
Oh tonight, I can fly, I can fly…yeah

Look at me for the very last time
I’ve climbed so high
I’ve got no place left to climb
I’m too good for tomorrow…waoh!

Rock star
Pop star
Everybody dies
All tomorrow’s parties they have happened tonight
And I know that I won’t be tomorrow

Sitting on the Hollywood sign
Watching the girls get off the bus
Watching the sparkle in their eyes
And they leave with broken hearts
They use as valentines

I came here from a dirty dark street
There was no one there to protect me
To make the nightmares go away
It has to sparkle!
It has to shine!

Look at me for the very last time
See if you find any life in my eyes
I won’t fade, not away, not from sorrow

Oh!
Rock star
Pop star
Everybody dies
All tomorrow’s parties they have happened tonight
And I know that I won’t see tomorrow


Turn off the porno please
Drowning in it for days
Bad food, bad sex
Bad TV, Internet
Take all these stupid pills away

Crashing down the Boulevard
Coming down so fast
Coming down so hard
The doctor said
I can’t stop all the voices in your head

Look at me for the very last time
I’m drowning here
I’m drowning at the speed of light
And I know, no tomorrow

Oh!
Rock star
Pop star
Hard to stay alive
All tomorrow’s parties
They have happened tonight
And I know that I won’t meet tomorrow

Oh!
Climbing on the mountain
From some dirty little town
It was easy going up
It’s so hard to come down
Met you on the way
(L.A/And they?) really want(s) you tomorrow

Yeah!
Yesterday’s girl or tomorrow’s hot teen
Were you jerking off to her?
Or were you jerking off to me?

On a rock star
Where do the wheels fall off
Baby, a girl like me should never get what she wants

Gabba gabba gabba goo
Million dollar pills
All the nights we ever wasted in Hollywood Hills
And I know, we’ll be late, for tomorrow


Now!
You were made for me
Oh baby I was made for you
Keys to the Bel-Air, the Chateau too

It’s not punk, it’s not cool
It’s not even boring
You rock n roll bitches always get what you want

It’s a real life
They try to steal my soul
I got pills when I’m fat
I got pills when I’m old

Your little sugar-coated world
It is rotten to the core
I didn’t know you were born without a soul

I got pills when I’m blonde
I got pills when I’m dead
I got pills that made me forget what I said

They are not delusions
And they question (our head?)
Look at our eyes
Oh baby tell me we are dead

Sitting on the Hollywood sign
Watching the love walk out
Watching the love in my eyes
Tonight, I got it right
Just one time

Cruising down the Sunset Strip
There’s nothing that’s not
That’s not within my grip
He said
Tonight, baby you fly
No you can fly


Sunset Strip (UK Version)

Sitting here on top of the world
I’ve got everything I need form this world
Oh tonight
I got it right
Just one time

Cruising down the Sunset Strip
And there is nothing that’s not
That’s not within my grip
Oh tonight I can fly
I can fly…yeah

Look at me for the very last time
I’ve climbed so high
I’ve got no place left to climb
Man I know no tomorrow

Oh, Rock star
Pop Star
Everybody dies
All tomorrow’s parties
They have happened tonight
And I know that I won’t see tomorrow

Sitting on the Hollywood sign
Watching the girls get off the bus
Watching the danger in their eyes
And they leave with broken hearts
They’re shredded valentines

I came here from a dirty, dark street
There was no one there to protect me
To make the nightmares go away
It has to sparkle!
It has to shine!
(So hollow)

Look at me for the very last time
I’ve climbed so high I’ve got no place left to climb
Man I know no tomorrow

Oh!
Rock star
Pop Star
Everybody dies
All tomorrow’s parties
They have happened tonight
And I know that I won’t see tomorrow

Turn off all the porno please
Been drowning here for days
Bad food, bad sex
Bad TV, Internet
Take all these stupid pills away

Flying down the boulevard
I’m coming down so fast
I’m coming down so hard
And the Doctor said
I can’t stop all those voices in your head

I don’t sleep I never dream
And to shut them up, now I just keep screaming
I run away, it’s the last time
It’s the last time

Look at me for the very last time
I’ve climbed so high I’ve got no place left to climb
Now I know no tomorrow

Before the sparkle in my eyes
Turns to strychnine
While this beating heart is still a valentine
I’m gonna ride this thing until the wheels fall off
Coz girls like me
We always get what we want
Yeah yeah yeah

Diamond hard promises and million dollar pills
All the nights we wasted in the Hollywood hills
Coz we know we’re too good for tomorrow

Yeah yeah yeah
Yesterday’s girl or tomorrow’s hot teens
Were you jerking off to her?
Or were you jerking off to me?
And I know that I won’t know tomorrow

Yeah!
You want my massive power
You want my throw-it-all-away
I’m throwing them out
It’s a wonder that you wait

Lawsuits, Diamonds, Guns N Rubies
Baby au revoir
You rock n roll bitches
You can do what you want

You were made for me
And I was made for you
With the keys to the Bel-Air, the Chateau too

Your little sugar-coated world
It is rotten to the core
I didn’t know you were born without a soul

I’ve got voices screaming in my head
Are you jerking off in your bed
It’s not punk, it’s not cool
It’s not even boring
And it’s not Eminem who’s gonna save me

It’s a real life they tried to steal my soul
I got pills when I’m famous
I got pills when you’re old
I got pills coz I’m blonde
I got pills coz you’re dead
I got pills coz I am the worst and best dressed
I got pills coz I feel more than 21
I got pills coz I know baby you’re not the one
I got pills for my coochie coz baby I’m sore
I got pills coz you’re fat
I got pills coz I’m bored

Cruising down the Sunset Strip
And there is nothing that’s not
That’s not within my grip
Oh tonight I got it right
Just one time

Finally - Acurate Lyrics for this Song! | Reviewer: Krystal Lake | 6/26/10

I've been looking at a lot of lyric sites to find the words to this song, and this is the *only* one I've found that actually has them correct!

I have no idea where those other sites got their's from, but they are all way off - and you only have to hear the song to realize that. Some had entire verses that aren't even in the song!
I'm singing this in Japan next month and desperately needed accurate lyrics, since sometimes Courtney can be a little hard to understand.
Thank you so very much, sing365.com !!
