Maybe Next Year

San Fernando Valley goes on forever

And I’m up in these hills thinking I’ll never

See this sunrise again, cause it’s time to go home

 

Man you come this town, try to give it a shot

And it just breaks your heart, takes all you’ve got

More than ten million here but I’ve never felt so alone

 

I guess it wasn’t my time now

I guess it wasn’t my time now but maybe next year

I guess it wasn’t my time now

I guess it wasn’t my time now but maybe next year

 

I’ve been playing a fool all over this place

Every slamming door, every pretty face

There’s nothing in this town that’s ever been what it seemed

 

Now my money’s gone and the well’s run dry

I’m just another broken spirit here wondering why

There’s something in my heart won’t let go of this dream

 

I guess it wasn’t my time now

I guess it wasn’t my time now but maybe next year

I guess it wasn’t my time now

I guess it wasn’t my time now but maybe next year

 

And the hardest part is letting go

And the way they’ll start with I told you so

Yeah the hardest part is letting go

Once you know

Once you know

Once you know

 

I guess it wasn’t my time now

I guess it wasn’t my time now but maybe next year

I guess it wasn’t my time now

I guess it wasn’t my time now but maybe next year

I guess it wasn’t my time now

I guess it wasn’t my time now but maybe next year
