LYRICS:
Tried to Hate The Angels
eager-eyed and westward bound - with a dream from your hometown.
to a place with a golden age never coming back around.
learn fast that you just don't know if you're lonely or just alone.
in a city full of millions can you really feel at home?
once you been here long it's fact -- don't you know you can't go back?
crane your neck at the train wreck like you're caught up in some trance.
the canyon roads up above the clouds - they'll only lead you down.
that's where you're headed if you thought you'd beat this town.

they say at night the city's like a sky that's full of stars -
a billion diamonds shining in an ocean made of smog.
i tried and tried to hate it but i just can 't help but love.
no i can't, no i can't hate the angels.

ambition hidden underneath those shades. they're gonna' pay you for your pretty face
but that money's gonna' burn away while your blue eyes fade to grey.
learn fast that it's all the same -- we're all playing in a losing game,
but honey if we never try it then we never can complain.
got dreams and they sometimes die - if we're lucky then they live up high
in the hills where the coyote's cry in the shadow of the sign.
but for every single lucky chance - there's a million losing hands.
babe, take that dress off we're not going to the dance.

they say at night the city's like a sky that's full of stars -
a billion diamonds shining in an ocean made of smog.
i tried and tried to hate it but i just can 't help but love.
no i can't, no i can't hate the angels.
no i can't, no i can't hate the angels. Show less
