Alec Benjamin – Jesus In LA (Lyrics)


‘Cause I won’t find Jesus in LA And it’s a crying shame I came all this way ‘Cause I won’t find Jesus in LA And it’s a crying shame I came all this way Packed my bag and ran away When they sold me the dream I was just 16 Or when I’m tripping on some pills At the bottom of the bottle Or at a party in the hills I won’t find him down on sunset ‘Cause you won’t find Jesus in LA And it’s a crying shame you came all this way Packed a bag and ran away When they sold you the dream you were just 16 Or when you’re tripping on some pills At the bottom of the bottle Or at a party in the hills You won’t find him down on sunset And I don’t care what they say And all the vibrant colors from the lights fade away And that is when I realized that I was alone And that is when I knew that it was time to go home ‘Cause you won’t find Jesus in LA And it’s a crying shame you came all this way ‘Cause you won’t find Jesus in LA And it’s a crying shame you came all this way Packed a bag and ran away When they sold you the dream you were just 16 Or when you’re tripping on some pills At the bottom of the bottle Or at a party in the hills You won’t find him down on sunset Let me tell you, in the end Hang out with the devil He said Come down to my level But I think we could be friends Know I’m not your truth I know I’m not your savior So let me share the way Searching through the city Yeah, I know you’ve been busy Well, I think that you should stay Said, Now that you’re with me Took a sip of his whiskey ‘Cause you won’t find Jesus in LA And it’s a crying shame you came all this way ‘Cause you won’t find Jesus in LA And it’s a crying shame you came all this way Packed a bag and ran away When they sold you the dream you were just 16 Or when you’re tripping on some pills At the bottom of the bottle Or at a party in the hills You won’t find him down on sunset You won’t find him where you think Said, Son, you’re not special He brought me down to his level I even asked my shrink I’ve been looking for my savior, looking for my truth I said, Tell me what you think With a pad and a pencil sat by his side And he bought us both a drink Down on the south side Well, I shook hands with the devil

I know alec said this song wasn't about Jesus but I feel like it is, like it explains Jesus vs the Devil so well, how the devil deceives, etc.

Im surprised there aren't more Lucifer comments like that's all I can think about listening to this song

See, for Alec this song isn't about Jesus, its about moving to LA and missing family. For me, though, its actually about Jesus. I know I'm going to get someone saying, "That's not the meaning though." I know that, but I'm starting to learn that you won't find Jesus in anywhere but in your heart and soul.

Why do the lyrics reminds me of Lucifer?

But i still get the message of this song itโ€™s just that I couldnโ€™t help it

The first time I heard this song is when he sung it to pennywise on his guitar… and I fell in love with it right then and there๐Ÿ’›

i think this song is about "Lucifer" btw he is the DEVIL in LA and he has club with alcohol.THE BEST TV SHOW EVER. YOU NEED TO WATCH THAT!!!

When I first heard this, I didn't really like it. Then I came back and listened to it a second time, and figured it was okay. The third time I heard, I thought, where has this been all my life

My favorite part was
'' well they sold you a dream when your just 16, packed your bag and ran away, and it's a crying shame you came all this way because you won't find Jesus in LA."

Who's been with alec since the beginning?

Alec doesnt get as much credit as he deserves. I hope someday his songs get played on the radio. Hes such an amazing artist
