Miguel – City Of Angels lyrics

[Verse 1]
Fighter jets over my city, uh
Cool contrails in the sky, yeah
It's breaking news all over TV
We were hit by surprise
Alright
I was at Townhouse down in Venice Beach, oh no
Stealing moments with you know who
We won the war but not a day goes by
That I don't think I shoulda been with you

[Chorus]
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
Alright

[Verse 2]
A vast shadow cast over my city
Some kinda, unknown ships sittin' in the sky (Yeah, ooh)
I guess they came here looking for trouble
No time for goodbyes

[Chorus]
Oh, 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

[Verse 3]
Drinking my favorite tequila (alright)
You know I, saved your last message to 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, oh no
I stayed behind when everyone left fled for Nevada
You know I, I stayed behind to search for your smile, oh no
Hoping to find you in the rubble
Hoping, that I could just hold you for a while

[Outro]
'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
Oh, why...
