There's a place where you can go
Music's hot and lights are low
But there's something you should know
Before the night is through
'Neath a buzzing neon sign
Dressed in style so cool and refined
Stands a man from some other time
Who's calling out to you

There in the night that has heard a thousand voices
Whispered a thousand names
Sang out a thousand love songs
He lives his Hollywood Nocturne
His Hollywood Nocturne

There's a place he'd like to go
Where it's cool and lights are low
But the shadows won't let go
They dance and call his name
As he roams the streets at night
Haunted by this devil sight
There's a man in dark red light
Who's calling out to you

There in the night that has heard a thousand voices
Whispered a thousand names
Sang out a thousand love songs
He lives his Hollywood Nocturne
His Hollywood Nocturne
His Hollywood Nocturne

    General CommentThis song fits so well at the end of 'dirty boogie'. Its such a good contrast and example of his versatility. He should do more slower songs like this. We have all seen how good he is at the fast stuff so lets see some slower classier skills, eh?

    General CommentI agree. This is one of my favorite songs by him and more songs like this would be great.
