There was truth.
There was consequence against you -
A weak defense, then there's me;
I'm seventeen and looking for a fight.

All my life
I was never there;
Just a ghost
Running scared.
Here, our dreams aren't made - they're won.

Lost in the City of Angels;
Down in the comfort of strangers, I...
Found myself in the fire burned hills,
In the land of a billion lights.

Bought my fate
Straight from hell.
Second sight
Has paid off well for a mother, a brother and me.

The silver of a lake at night;
The hills of Hollywood on fire;
A boulevard of hope and dreams;
Streets made of desire.

Lost in the City of Angels;
Down in the comfort of strangers, I...
Found myself in the fire burned hills,
In the land of a billion lights.

I found myself in the fire burned hills,
In the land of a billion lights.
(Of a billion lights, of a billion lights, of a billion lights...)

Angels

Angels

I am home!
Home!
Home!
Home!

Lost in the City of Angels;
Down in the comfort of strangers, I...
Found myself in the fire burned hills,
In the land of a billion lights.

One life, one love - Live!
One life, one love - Live!
One life, one love - Live!
One life, one love -
City Of Angels (Angels)
['the city' is whispered and then overlaps]
The City Of Angels (Angels)
The City Of Angels
The City Of Angels
(The City Of Angels) [whispered]

[*See their Live Union Square performance]

    Today I looked up your video on you tube and read the lyrics listened along and the second verse killed me. i don't even know Jared. God must have spoken to you. I can relate to the tee. I can feel it. But your song reminds me of the Goo's 'Iris.'
