  • She thinks I'm much too thin
    She asks me if I'm sick
    What's a girl to do
    With friends like this
    She lets me drive her car
    So I can score an eighth
    From the lesbians
    Out west in Venice

    Oh, California in the Summer
    Ah, and my hair is growing long
    Fuck yeah, we can live like this

    But if you left it up to me
    Everyday would be
    A holiday from real
    We'd waste our weeks
    Beneath the sun
    We'd fry our brains
    And say it's so much fun out here
    But when it's all over
    I'll come back for another year

    I'll look for work today
    I'm spilling out the door
    Put my glasses on
    So no one sees me
    I never thought that
    I'd be living on your floor
    But the rents are high
    And LA's easy

    Oh, it's a picture of perfection
    Ah, and the postcards gonna read
    "Fuck yeah we can live like this...
    We can live like this"

    But if you left it up to me
    Everyday would be
    A holiday from real
    We'd waste our weeks
    Beneath the sun
    We'd fry our brains
    And write it's so much fun out here

    Hey Madeline (hey Madeline)
    You sure look fine (you sure look fine)
    You wore my favorite sweater
    Being poor was never better
    A safety buzz (A safety buzz)
    Some cheap red wine (Some cheap red wine)
    Oh, the trouble we can get in
    So let's screw this one up right

    But if you left it up to me
    Everyday would be
    A holiday from real
    We'd waste our weeks
    Beneath the sun
    We'd lie and tell our friends
    It's so much fun out here
    But when it's all over
    I'll come back for another year

    When it's all over
    I'll come back for another
    When it's all over
    I'll come back for another year
