"Los Angeles" as written by Ryan O'connor, Seth James Johnson and Daniel James Stevens....
She said, "I'm jealous of Los Angeles
She gets to keep you for a month or two
And I don't know if I can handle this
The thought of being without you."

I know it's cold
But baby, maybe we can stay a little longer
Then warm up those toes
The last thing we need is to blow our cover
And I know it's tough
To reconsider what you thought was love
But I'm so proud of all the plans you're speaking of

Lay with me
Stay with me now, oh
'Cause you are all I think about

She said, "I'm jealous of Los Angeles
She gets to keep you for a month or two
And I don't know if I can handle this
The thought of being without you."
She said, "I'm sorry for the way I've been
It's so much harder
But I guess we'll see
If I can prove myself wrong
Show you I can be stronger
Than we thought that I would be."

I said, "Let's go
And baby, maybe I can show you
What you need to know and how to cope
The citizens can listen in
But they will never know
About this love
And just how stronger we can be
So what if they don't like the plans
That we've been speaking of?"

I'll crave your kiss
While you're gone, oh
So much I'm missing that alone

She said, "I'm jealous of Los Angeles
She gets to keep you for a month or two
And I don't know if I can handle this
The thought of being without you."
She said, "I'm sorry for the way I've been
It's so much harder
But I guess we'll see
If I can prove myself wrong
Show you I can be stronger
Than we thought that I would be."

And I can commit to change
(I said I'm sorry for the way I've been)
If you can promise to stay the same
(It's so much harder than I thought it'd be)
And never let this fade
(I said I'm sorry for the way I've been)
Baby, just promise to stay the same
(It's so much harder than I thought it'd be)

She said, "I'm jealous of Los Angeles
She gets to keep you for a month or two
And now I know that I can handle this
The thought of being without you."
She said, "I'm sorry for the way I've been
It's so much harder, but I guess we'll see
If I can prove myself wrong
Show you I can be stronger
Than we thought that I would be."

    General CommentThis song hits so close to home. I'm in a long distance relationship with someone in Florida and it's honestly so difficult. This song makes me feel so much better though. It pretty much is self explanatory.
