West Of Hollywood Lyrics

Artist: Steely Dan
Album: Two Against Nature

Brother in tears
Look at this chain of sorrows
Stretching all the way from here and now to hell and gone

I was Kid Clean
She was Anne de Siecle
Just a thrill away from punching through to the cosmic wow

It started out good
Then it got lots better
Makin' up the rules as we went along
But with a business like this
There's an gnarly downside

CHORUS:
I'm way deep into nothing special
Riding the crest of a wave breaking just west of Hollywood

Swingin' so hard
We burned right through the summer
Till the axis of pain/pleasure sheared the arc of desire

From the Rebus affair
To the streets of Culver City
Places and events slip below the horizon line

Now at this time
Into our pretty story
The truth compels us
To bring a certain name
Meet if you will
Doctor Warren Kruger

CHORUS


She reached out for my hand
While I watched myself lurch across the room
And I almost got there

Look in my eyes
Can't you see the core is frozen?
You can't ask me to access the dreams I don't have now

Sadly for us
Our little talk is over
So together we'll endure the tyranny of the disallowed

Don't you love Port Blanc
When Hooterie is over
When the girls get easy and the crowds are gone
A weekend of bliss
Then the rainy season

CHORUS
Comments/Interpretations

Sounds like an old West Coast
affair that ran out of gas.
Two comments: Who is Dr. Warren Kruger? Does anyone care much
about the lyric after hearing Chris Potter's unbelievable solo?
I'll bet Donald gets bugged when
people like Marian McPartland get
the title wrong but praise Chris's
solo to the heavens.
