"Goodnight L.A." as written by Daniel John Vickrey, Adam Duritz, Matthew Malley, David Bryson, Charles Gillingham, Ben G Mize and David A Immergluck....
I said goodnight L.A.
'Cause I'm awake in my room
I've been up for 38 hours
And it don't look like sleep's coming soon

'Cause I could break like a bird
Or I could swallow the sea
It seems like the daylight is coming
And no one is watching but me

But I don't mind the dark
Discovering the day
'Cause the night is a beautiful bright blue and gray

What brings me down now is love
'Cause I can never get enough
And what brings me down now is love
'Cause I can never get enough of love

And it's a dangerous time
For a heart on a wire
Shuttle from station to station
Noisily not knowing why

So I put my head on the ground
And the sky is a wheel
Spinning these days into things that I've lost
But you can keep all the years

But I don't mind the days
Gone rolling away
'Cause all this sunlight feels warm on my face today

But what brings me down now is love
'Cause I can never get enough
And what brings me down now is love
'Cause I can never get enough, never get enough
Never get enough, no no, never get enough, no oh no
And still I can never get enough of love

And what brings me, brings me down now is love
'Cause I can never get enough of love
I can never get enough of love
I can never ever get enough
I can never get enough of love

    General CommentFor me this is about life being a little empty, while you chug forward halfheartedly, with a deep longing for a void that isn't ever quite filled. But at the same time there is an acceptance and appreciation for the beauty of any specific moment. It sucks being awake all night, but then there is this beautiful sunrise. The exasperation of travel sucks, and brings him to the ground where he contemplates the emptiness of life and the passage of time, but its ok because at that moment, the sun on his face feels good. Love this song. Always makes me feel like, no matter how tough or empty things seem, its OK, I can accept where I am, appreciate solace in a simple moment.....
