City of Angels - 30 Seconds to Mars




The Experience: Life is made of opportunities. We either take them or leave them. Our choices pave our way. In the video, Selena Gomez, gives us one of the keys to success: “If you want something… work really hard”. 


The video: The landscape of L.A. as a background. A random group of people sharing their experience, their search for something in life. Interviews with people looking for fame. Searching for dreams…in a magical place. A promised land, broken dreams, a journey in streets made of desire. Both the song and the interviews are needed to have the full of experience of City of Angels.

My take: Here our dreams aren't made. They're won. We all have dreams and goals in life. They give us hope. Something to look forward to. We need to fight for them and make them real. The “City of Angels” represents the chance to do it… but it´s up to us to make them happen.
 
Ask yourself: What are my goals and dreams in life? What am I doing them to make them real?
 
 
          LYRICS:

There was truth
There was consequence
Against you, a weak defense
Then there's me, I'm seventeen
Looking for a fight

All my life
I was never there
I'm 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 burnt hills
In the land of a billion lights

Bought my fate, straight from hell
A second sight has paid off well
For a mother, a brother and me

The silver of the 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 burnt hills
In the land of a billion lights
I found myself in the fire burnt hills
In the land 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 burnt hills
In the land of a billion lights

One life, one love
One life, one love
One life, one love
One life, one love

The city of angels
The city of angels
The city of angels
The city of angels
