LA On A Saturday Night - Hearts & Colors




The Experience: "Nobody can fall in love in LA on a Saturday night... they get dressed up just to lay down with the guy, with the girl, with whoever's got a broken heart..." It might seem like there is no one who will really care about us, but is that true? What if there is someone out there who cares enough to stay?


Music videoIn the video we get a taste of the LA hookup culture (or practically any other city in America for that matter) where people wake up beside people they might not even know and probably will never see again. As the video progresses we see how, in every couple, one of the members was only in it for the night and the other wakes up alone and heartbroken. But in the closing seconds of the video one couple begins to break the cycle. 

The Meaning of LA On A Saturday Night: In a world of loneliness and fear of commitment sometimes it can seem like no one will ever be there to stay. So, "they all hit the town, get to getting around, find a body who can hold 'em tight". Deep down we all know this is not what we want, but we can start to doubt if there is anything else out there for us. Since as the song says, "nobody can fall in love in LA on a Saturday night". But what if that is a lie? What if the vicious cycle could stop with you?

Ask yourself: What steps am I taking to break the cycle and end this culture of loneliness, by being there for the people in my life?

LYRICS:

They all hit the town
Get to getting around
Find a body who can hold 'em tight
You know it's true what they say
Nobody can fall in love in LA on a Saturday night
All the boys and the girls on top of the world
In the morning they realise
That it's true what they say
Nobody can fall in love in LA on a Saturday night

God, I hate this fucked up city
People flip on the charm like the lights on the boulevard
They get dressed up just to lay down
With a guy, with a girl, with whoever's got a broken heart

They all hit the town
Get to getting around
Find a body who can hold 'em tight
You know it's true what they say
Nobody can fall in love in LA on a Saturday night
All the boys and the girls on top of the world
In the morning they realise
That it's true what they say
Nobody can fall in love in LA on a Saturday night
You know it's true what they say
Nobody can fall in love in LA on a Saturday night

God, I love this fucked up city
If you roll the right dice you can wake up a millionaire
We're all dreamers, far from angels
Yeah, we trade in our wings just to find that nobody cares

They all hit the town
Get to getting around
Find a body who can hold 'em tight
You know it's true what they say
Nobody can fall in love in LA on a Saturday night
All the boys and the girls on top of the world
In the morning they realise
That it's true what they say
Nobody can fall in love in LA on a Saturday night
You know it's true what they say
Nobody can fall in love in LA on a Saturday night

God, I love this fucked up city

They all hit the town
Get to getting around
Find a body who can hold 'em tight
You know it's true what they say
Nobody can fall in love in LA on a Saturday night
All the boys and the girls on top of the world
In the morning they realise
That it's true what they say
Nobody can fall in love in LA on a Saturday night
You know it's true what they say
Nobody can fall in love in LA on a Saturday night
