    Lyrics

    Sure I came out here to make my name
    Wanted my pool, my dose of fame
    Wanted my parking space at Warner's
    But after a year, a one room hell
    A murphy bed, a rancid smell
    Wallpaper peeling at the corners

    Sunset Boulevard, twisting boulevard
    Secretive and rich, a little scary
    Sunset Boulevard, tempting boulevard
    Waiting there to swallow the unwary

    Dreams are not enough to win a war
    Out here they're always keeping score
    Beneath the tan the battle rages
    Smile a rented smile, fill someone's glass
    Kiss someone's wife, kiss someone's ass
    We do whatever pays the wages

    Sunset Boulevard, headline boulevard
    Getting here is only the beginning
    Sunset Boulevard, jackpot boulevard
    Once you've won you have to go on winning

    You think I've sold out?
    Dead right I've sold out!
    I just keep waiting for the right offer
    Comfortable quarters, regular rations
    24-hour Five Star room service
    And if I'm honest, I like the lady
    I can't help being touched by her folly
    I'm treading water, taking the money
    Watching her sun set... Well, I'm a writer!

    L.A.'s changed a lot over the years
    Since those brave gold rush pioneers
    Came in their creaky covered wagons
    Far as they could go end of the line
    Their dreams were yours, their dreams were mine
    But in those dreams were hidden dragons

    Sunset Boulevard, frenzied boulevard
    Swamped with every kind of false emotion
    Sunset Boulevard, brutal boulevard
    Just like you, we'll wind up in the ocean

    She was sinking fast, I threw a rope
    Now I have suits and she has hope
    It seemed an elegant solution
    One day this must end, it isn't real
    Still I'll enjoy a hearty meal
    Before tomorrrow's execution

    Sunset Boulevard, ruthless boulevard
    Destination for the stony-hearted
    Sunset Boulevard, lethal boulevard
    Everyone's forgotten how they started
    Here on Sunset Boulevard...!
