about

Los Angeles Thursday is a song about the subjectivity of beauty. It was a beautiful night for me, astounding in all its perfect details, but when I tried to shake a stranger out of his corporate coma, he couldn't see what I saw. Gabriel Goldstein and Gabriel Diamond helped make a gorgeous video of this song.

lyrics

Running water behind the hedge
Of a neatly columned, light blue cottage
Succulent fingers and succulent knees
Fifty foot towers are palm trees

Planes departing and arriving
Spot the sky, like stars out driving

An old man says, with passing eyes
"All the beauty, in time it dies"
I turn on my stair and cry my cause
"It's a beautiful night!", he turns to pause

Planes departing and arriving
Spot the sky, like stars out driving
Like stars out driving

He points skyward, shrugs and turns
Bird of paradise, in orange and purple burns
A cactus shows me his gruesome spines
Beauty, I suppose, tonight it's just mine

Planes departing and arriving
Spot the sky, like stars out driving
Stars out driving
