Rainbow - Lost In Hollywood Lyrics




Gotta get a message through
Cause I think I'm losing you
Am I too late
Drinking habit's a loose sometime
I gotta know if you're still mine
And I can't wait
Last time I saw your face
You tried to hide the tears
But I could see the trace
I'd be there if I could
But it's so far away from home
Lost in Hollywood

In the dark the vultures wait
I can hear them
Knocking at my gate
But I'm not here
The brew was cold
The meat is stale
In the L.A. night the sirens wail
The song you can feel
Pale stars that never shine
Scotch and the whiskey
And the Rainbow local wine
She's done more bad than good
I gotta get away somehow
Lost in Hollywood

On the streets the sun is fine
Don't you feel the advantage hit your mind
Feels all right oh yeah
But I'm a lover
Like a loaded gun
Chasing shadows on the run
Out in the night
I'm gonna lose control
If I been losing you
To pay for rock'n'roll
Get back I know I should
Gotta get back home to you
You don't know what I been through
But there's nothing I can do
Lost in Hollywood

Rainbow Lost In Hollywood Comments
  1. Ethan Thais

    Most underrated rainbow song

  2. ヒムロぬの

    Gotta get a message through
    Cause I think I'm losing you
    Am I too late?
    Drinking habit's a loose sometime
    I gotta know if you're still mine
    And I can't wait
    Last time I saw your face
    You tried to hide the tears
    But I could see the trace
    I'd be there if I could
    But it's so far away from home
    Lost in Hollywood!
    In the dark the vultures wait
    I can hear them knocking at my gate
    But I'm not here
    The brew was cold, the meat is stale
    In the L.A. night the sirens wail
    The song you can feel
    Pale stars that never shine
    Scotch and the whiskey
    And the Rainbow local wine
    She's done more bad than good
    I gotta get away somehow
    Lost in Hollywood!
    *instrumental part*
    On the streets the sun is fine
    Don't you feel the advantage hit your mind
    Feels all right... oh yeah
    But I'm a lover like a loaded gun
    Chasing shadows on the run
    Out in the night!
    I'm gonna lose control
    If I been losing you
    To pay for rock'n'roll
    Get back I know I should
    Gotta get back home to you
    You don't know what I been through
    But there's nothing I can do
    Lost in Hollywood!

    This song reminds me of all those great LA nights in the late 70s; beautiful Californian girls in skimpy bikinis that came off too easily while we knocked back bottles of Jim Beam and Canadian Club. G-d, I was wish I were 5 again!

  22. Keith Holt

    First Heard Graham Bonnets vocals on a single from late 1960s called only one woman loved his voice then. Never thought he'd be in Rainbow. Good album too.

  23. Roberto Carlos Velasquez

    Great band... Great song... Great singer... Rainbow forever and Long Live Rock and Roll!!!

  30. dave moore

    LOVE THIS SONG

  31. 2003Cpayne

    The best song on the album, by far!

  32. Aitor Ezquerro Ibarbuen

    I love Dio i love Bonnet i love Lynn Turner i love Romero Rainbow forever

  33. private liar

    Graham is a one of rock n rolls that is figured as Human.

  34. Marcus Streets

    If you get the chance check out one of the two bands that will be playing this this summer. Graham is on tour with a reformed Alcatraz in OZ and will be playing the entire album. And Don Airey and Freinds are playing odd dates inbetween other comitments. I suppose the electric Blackmores Night might just attempt it - but they seem to be mainly murdering Dio songs.

  35. Razz0r ric

    Found this at last !

  36. Robert Domantay

    1976 heard this for the first time, buddys van, so loud couldn't hear for a while after, I was hooked on rainbow to this day,

  47. Andrew Flowers

    Notice how the break down, & then the solo all mimic different era's & movie genres? The keyboard breakdown is reminiscent of the Epic style movie music like the Bible movies, or large Gone With The Wind type of productions. Then the guitar burst into an early Western/ Train Robber movie, when there was no spoken dialogue, just those lightning fast, insane piano duals. And finally the solo culminates in a car chase type scene/movie ending crash/ crack um up! It incorporates the 'Magic' of Hollywood of which he has been subdued by & just can't seem to break away from. Very brilliant song writing by Dark Lord & Glover, just such a sly subtle twist that most listeners miss. Okay all but myself doesn't get it until it's pointed out. Blackmore is a dark occultist witch, & much of his music writing , & guitar solos are an active part of the lyrical narrative , & helps tell the story. Much of his soloing in DP is just that. But in Rainbow it is very important & powerful, & imperative to the to the whole, the full spectrum of the Complete song. Almost magical, as that's why he made this band & named it Rainbow-- which is a deep occultic meaning, & is 1 of the divisions w/in the MK-Ultra Mind Control Programs. He even switch singers purposely so 25 years later people are arguing & become angry, insulting, & ultimately Divided. Blackmore is down w/the Devil, & is a high ranking witch in the occult world. He purposely left DP & was lead by other worldly consultants to form this band and every move he made w/in this band was planned & scripted! The only personal item recovered from the Challenger reckage was the astronaut school teacher's CD of...y'all won't believe this shit, the CD cover of Down To Earth! Yeah, ain't that some shit? Very chilling. According to Die, & Turner, Blackmore controls one of the oldest demons of all time-- Azazal(Azazil). Yes the same demon featured in the movie Fallen. He is worth $300 million dollars. Jimmy, Eric, Jeff, Keith Richards, Lindsey Buckingham, none of them guys are that rich! His handlers took care of him,,& he did what he did for the dark cause. And as a last offering to them, & a tribute to his real boss, Satan, he made 1 last record honoring evilness. Songs like Hunting Humans, Black Masquerade, Too Late For Tears are odes to darkness. And Ariel is one of the original fallen angels that plays the role of Satan at one time are another. He is also a Necromancer, & regularly communes w/ long dead, very evil people from ancient history. There is always something else going on. Everything has another side, a deeper meaning, & that's just a little info on real darkness of Blackmore....damn it I love that dark. Evil, occultic Maddafacca! Thee greatest, most talented guitar player of the all! And damn, but ain't he cool?!!! Hope you had fun with this & were entertained. Out.

    Jon Blackers

    "Blackmore is a dark occultist witch". No black magic here, he is into white magic

    I know you're supposed to prefer the Dio albums as a true Rainbow fan, and I'm as true as they come, heard every album to death, but Down to Earth is my favorite album. Since you Been Gone is an atrocity, and All Night Long is meh, but the rest of the album is a brilliant, a masterpiece. Lost in Hollywood, Eyes of the World etc, just great.

    Nick Spinner

    Since You Been Gone and All Night Long are brilliant.

  55. seaside ave

    Glaham's rost in follywood is the best!

  56. Vanei Pontes

    🌈 Lin up: Blackmore - Powell - Airey - Glover - And Bonnet 👏👏👏

    svogender

  57. Lionel Alias

    The two jewels here, are this song and Eyes Of The World.

  58. Paola Acosta Sanchez

  60. Zdravko Bitunjac

    So raw...So good

  61. Zdravko Bitunjac

    First class song.Bonnet can sing.

  62. 6341190574

    thumbs up to mireille

  63. Fabricio Zunini

    Ese bajo es perfecto!!!!

  64. arpurple65

    Graham Bonnet es un buen cantante, este es un buen disco, pero DIO es a rainbow como Ian gillan es a deep purple

    Luis Estrada Vargas

    Cuestión de gustos,a mi me gusta más Graham como vocalista en Rainbow.

  65. Thomas Wolke

    I can't believe I never heard of this band until recently. Bonnet kills it.

    David Topchiev

    Where have u been Thomas??

    Thomas Wolke

    @David Topchiev Lost somewhere besides Hollywood.

    Zoran Gajdobranski

    OMG David,tell me this is not true...take Rainbow Rising,masterpeace

  66. Buck Johnson

    When you talk about Heavy Metal Drummers, there is Cozy Powell, then there's everyone else. His power and speed hit you like a punch in the gut. Cozy Powell, there is no substitute.

    III

    Joerg Michael; by far the greatest combination of power, precision, and speed of all time listen to mid-era Stratovarius, he just obliterates the drum kit and he has come up with some of the most influential drum beats of all time. Rainbow as a band though was ahead of their time.

    Anthony Emery

    It's his sound for me, the playing is amazing but he ALWAYS sounded ahead of his time. The drum SOUNDS on Rainbow Rising, Slide it In and Emerson Lake and Powell in particular - just insanely great

    Opera Singer

    @Caveman His playing and sound (the great Martin Birch) on Rainbow Raising and Long Live Rock n Roll was tops for me. .

    Alex Zoris

    @Ed Berger not even in his wildest dreams

    Ed Berger

    @Alex Zoris Yr the one that's dreaming!

  67. Adrian Struys

    They don't do rock like this any more...................these tracks bring memories of good times

    Load Game

    Six words, my friend, "New Wave Of Traditional Heavy Metal"... No, I don't mean New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, nor New Wave Of American Heavy Metal.

    Gus Marokity

    Adrian Struys It's not that they 'don't rock like this anymore' it is that THEY CANNOT ROCK LIKE THIS ANYMORE!

  68. Taunt Progressiv

    This is Rainbow for the unbelievers

    Buck Johnson

    Taunt Progressiv. Are there any unbelievers? If so, they are Uncivilized Heathens. Rainbow: There is no Substitute.

    David Topchiev

    Isn't this the period when Ritchie was busy firing, Hiring, composing, spreading his Genius.....Clapton and Page were laying there with needles sticking out of their arms?

  69. Ray Wood

    A great song off a fantastic album

  70. Felipe Sebastian

    Lost in hollywood is a great song...

    The Clansman

    Rainbow is becoming my favorite band

  72. A. Liutaio

    It is PERFECT !

  73. Clive Bindley

    So much better than Pouf Lynn Turner
    Actually sounds like an English rock band and not Foreigner.

    MajsteR

    Why would they sound english? They were an american band

    svogender

    @MajsteR I'll think that they are pretty British..!!!

    MajsteR

    @svogender Well, every person in that line up was english, but that does not mean that it's a british band. Rainbow was formed from Elf. Only difference was Ritchie, which means that it was a band formed in USA and with 4 out of 5 american members.

    svogender

    @MajsteR Yeah ok...What ever....Rainbow was a great band....British or not..!! 😊

    MajsteR

    ​@svogender That we can agree on

  74. иван гансаев

    superrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!! yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.......

  75. on the dry

    this rock singing at its best

  76. batmaniac66

    Dio is god... but Graham really rocks on this album!

  77. 吉田哲夫

    daisuki~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~lost in hollywood!

  78. Christopher Hart

    I used to think Ronnie was the best Rainbow singer. Then this came out.

    ElRealPetChicken

    I disagree completely but I respect your opinion.

    Carlos L

    Why don't you guys focus on the music? there are tastes for everyone.
    Who's the best at what? There will always be people doing things in a different way but if you like rock you've still been on the fast track and haven't listened to Dio properly.
    Word of advice. Listen to Deep Purple, then Rainbow, Whitesnake, Dio and Blacksabath with Dio. Then write again.

    Danny H

    DIO IS THE BEST!!!

    IRON BLACK SABBATH MAIDEN

    I'm as biggest Dio fan as they get, but in Rainbow I like more with Bonnet and JLT. My favorite Dio song ever from any band he was in is Temple Of The King!! Outside of Rainbow I love Black Sabbath more with Dio, and I love his solo career a lot. And like someone mentioned before that he respects your comment and I do also! I'm more of a Rainbow fan with JLT but that's just my opinion.

    Arwah Sapi

    They both are not to compare, though I wish this song was performed by Dio, but each to his own style

  79. Natalia Medvedeva

    Одна из самых любимых композиций Rainbow на протяжении многих лет! Браво!
