Gower Avenue

There in the shadows of fame
Beneath the neighbourhood sign
Sit the people who lost the game
Or they committed a crime
It's hard to tell what they've done
Their sentence is to live here
Close enough to all the fun
But they still can't get near...

Chorus:
You never feel so deprived
Or so blessed all at once
As you can in the seat of fame
When rich and poor collide
In the streets of this town
People need to lay blame

The studios and actors are here
But so too are the poor
Beverly Hills has the money
But it makes the poor appear
Where wealth and grime collide
It's just a short walk away
Under all the shades of blue
You'll find it all on Gower Ave.

Repeat chorus

Musical bridge

There in the shadows of fame
Beneath the neighbourhood sign
Sit the people who lost the game
Or they committed a crime
It's hard to tell what they've done
Their sentence is to live here
Close enough to all the fun
But they still can't get near...

Repeat chorus twice

It's not what you expect
It's not the real world...
