Lyrics

Girl from Echo Park
What have you done to me?
Maybe I’m sad, maybe it’s that
I just want your company
We’re all unsteady at heart
In the hours of the new moon 
A call through the air, 
A whisper through your hair 
Saying I’m wrong for you
 
Chorus: 
Let’s get it started 
Pretty girl from Echo Park 
We’ll dance in starlight 
Down on Sunset Blvd 
We’ll watch the cars drive 
while they wonder who you are 
They think you’re a movie star, honey
Hallelujah 
 
I hope I get in the way
I hope that these feelings show
Did you feel the same
When spaceland was closing
Or was I just drunk and stoned?
The dogs they dance on the roof
One fell right off last June 
I get in the cab
Wonder where we’re at
In the hesitation blues

From His Own Words–Scott’s Inspiration

The song was produced and recorded in my bedroom by me. I wrote the song about a girl that lived behind The Brite Spot Diner who let me sleep over when I was kind of homeless and new to LA. I would walk her dogs, and she told me to write the song about her and her 2 dogs. She was beautiful, like a moviestar. – Scott Mellis
