I guess I think I feel alright
You come circling through the light
The skyline baby is bright tonight
What more perfect rendezvous?
The sundown paints the shadows through
the daylight, Amy, on what we do

It looks like darkness to me
Drifting down into Miami

Can I say
“I wish that this weather would never leave”?
It just gets hard to believe
That God sent this angel
To watch over me
Oh my angel,
She don’t receive my calls
Says I’m to dumb to fuck
To dumb to fight
To dumb to save
Well, maybe I don’t need no angel at all

It looks like darkness to me
Drifting down into Miami
Miami
She could pull the sunlight through me
Coming down, into Miami
Miami

Make a circle in the sand
Make a halo with your hands
I’ll make a place for you to land
The bus is running, it’s time to leave
The summer’s gone, so are we
So come on baby, let’s go shut it down
In New Orleans.
Come on baby, lets go shut it down
In New Orleans
Come on Baby, come on baby
Lets go shut it down, in new orleans.
Come on lets go shut it down
In New Orleans
Come on baby
Come on baby
Lets go shut it down
