"Echo Park" as written by Jimmy Harry and Ryan Cabrera....
Today It Rained in L.A.
Smog's been beatin' down for awhile
Drove up a hill where I could feel the ocean
And see for miles

Feels like the top of the world
Right here the world's all mine
Here I lie watching the cars on the highway
You're one of those lights that's driving away

I'm standing in the dark wondering where you are
I'm leaving my heart here in Echo Park
Today you said you were leavin'
Couldn't let you see me cry

You can take what you want to
But won't let you take my pride
Feels like the top of the world
Right here the world's mine


And the cars look smaller from here
And the sky looks bigger from here
And now that everything is clear
Everything falls apart

    General CommentThink of this song as the one you're crushing going away to college. So you say your goodbyes and go to a local spot where no one will be, because you're a guy, to be sad.
