City of Angels

Album: War & Leisure (2017)
  • Flying jets all over my city, uh
    Cool car trails in the skies, ya
    Is breaking news all over the TV
    We were here, by surprise
    Alright

    I was at townhouse down in Venice Beach, oh no
    Still in moments of you know who, oh oh
    We want a war but another day goes by
    But I don't think I should've be with you

    When the city of angels fell
    When the city of angels fell
    When the city of angels fell
    Ya, I was busy letting you down, woman
    When the city of angels fell
    When the city of angels fell
    I am nowhere to be found
    Alright

    A vast shadow cast over my city, oh oh
    Some kinda, unknown ship sittin' in the sky, oh oh oh
    I guess they came here looking for trouble
    No time for goodbyes

    When the city of angels fell
    When the city of angels fell
    When the city of angels fell
    I was busy letting you down, woman
    When the city of angels fell
    When the city of angels fell
    And I was nowhere to be found
    No no, nowhere to be found
    Nowhere honey, oh no

    Drinking my favorite tequila, alright
    You know I, saved your last message in my phone, woman
    I didn't text you back that night, did I?
    It just says, "Baby when do you think you'll be home?" no no
    I stayed behind when everyone left, left for Nevada
    You know I, I stay behind, search for your smile, oh no
    Hoping to find you in the rubble
    Hoping, that I could just hold you for a while

    'Cause when the city of angels fell
    When the city of angels fell
    When the city of angels fell
    I was busy letting you down, woman
    When the city of angels fell
    When the city of angels fell
    I was nowhere to be found
