Lyrics

I miss Long Beach and I miss you, babe
I miss dancing with you the most of all
I miss the bar where the Beach Boys would go
Dennis' last stop before "Kokomo"

Those nights were on fire
We couldn't get higher
We didn't know that we had it all
But nobody wants you before the fall

And I'm wasted
Don't leave, I just need a wake-up call
I'm facing the greatest
The greatest loss of them all
The culture is lit and I had a ball
I guess I'm signing off after all

I miss New York and I miss the music
Me and my friends, we miss rock and roll
I want you to feel just like you used to
When, baby, I was doing nothing the most of all

The culture is lit and if this it I had a ball
I guess that I'm burned out after all

Oh, I'm wasted
Don't leave, I just need a wake-up call
I'm facing the greatest
The greatest loss of them all
The culture is lit and I had a ball
But I guess that I'm burned out after all

If this is it I'm signing off
Miss doin' nothing the most of all
Hawaii just missed a fireball
LA's in flames, it's getting hot
Kayne West is blind and gone
"Life on Mars" ain't just a song
Oh, the livestream's almost on
