Lyrics

(Los Angeles, you are too hot)

You have never been in love Until you've seen the stars Reflect in the reservoirs

And you have never been in love Until you've seen the dawn rise Behind the Home For The Blind

We are the Pretty Petty Thieves And you're standing on our streets Where Hector was the first of the gang With a gun in his hand And the first to do time The first of the gang to die Oh my Hector was the first of the gang With a gun in his hand And the first to do time The first of the gang to die Oh my

You have never been in love Until you've seen sunlight thrown Over smashed human bone

We are the Pretty Petty Thieves And you're standing on our streets Where Hector was the first of the gang With a gun in his hand And the first to do time The first of the gang to die Such a silly boy Hector was the first of the gang With a gun in his hand And a bullet in his gullet The first lost lad to go under the sod

And he stole from the rich and the poor And the not-very-rich And the very poor And he stole all hearts away

He stole all hearts away He stole all hearts away He stole all hearts away Away

He stole all hearts away He stole all hearts away Away

He stole all hearts away He stole all hearts away Away
