"Summer In The City" is a song by Ängie produced by Harrison First. It is the tenth track from their second studio album, Follow The White Rabbit.

Background

On July 6th, 2020, Ängie posted the first verse of the song on her Instagram.[1] The song was written and recorded on August 28th at Ängie's house in a session with Harrison First. The song wasn't fully written yet so they recorded only the first verses and a draft for the chorus.[2][3]

On that day, Harrison did a 1 hour live stream on Youtube showcasing the session, in which they also started recording "Down By The Bay".[4] After his stream, Ängie also did two live streams on her Instagram showing more of the process of the two songs being made.

Later, Harrison First revealed on his Telegram group that the session was to work on new material for their second album. On September 7th, Ängie posted the first two verses of the song on her Instagram.[5]

On December 2020, Harrison shared a snippet of a new demo of the song that had a completely different production on his Discord group. Most likely him and Ängie changed the production because of a shift in creative direction.[6]

Theme

Summer is Ängie's favorite season, and has often said she feels depressed when it ends. On this song though, she expresses not even summer can make her feel better about the fact that she feels so lonely.

Lyrics

[Chorus]
Summer in the city, feel so fucking pretty
But I don't have nowhere to go
Cruising on my bike, feeling fucking tight
But I am so damn alone
The clouds are getting darker
Smiling's getting harder
And I feel so fucking done
No one picks up the phone
Don't know what I did wrong
But guess I'm better off on my own

[Verse 1]
Skies are blue and so am I
All alone, back on my lines
Roses bloom while I get high
On my own but that's alright

[Pre-Chorus]
Come on and call me up
You know I'm feeling down
And if you want a taste
Only you on my mind

[Chorus]
Summer in the city, feel so fucking pretty
But I don't have nowhere to go
Cruising on my bike, feeling fucking tight
But I am so damn alone
The clouds are gеtting darker
Smiling's getting harder
And I feel so fucking donе
No one picks up the phone
Don't know what I did wrong
But guess I'm better off on my own

[Verse 2]
I don't know why I keep trying
You say you care, I know you lied
I'm in love with your green eyes
While I'm chewing, fall for mine

[Pre-Chorus]
Come on and call me up
You know I'm feeling down
And if you want a taste
Only you on my mind

[Chorus]
Summer in the city, feel so fucking pretty
But I don't have nowhere to go
Cruising on my bike, feeling fucking tight
But I am so damn alone
The clouds are getting darker
Smiling's getting harder
And I feel so fucking done
No one picks up the phone
Don't know what I did wrong
But guess I'm better off on my own

[Outro]
Guess I'm better off on my own

Summer in the city
And I'm feeling fucking pretty
But I don't got anywhere to go

I'm cruising on my bike
And I'm feeling fucking tight
But I am so terribly alone

No one picks up the phone
I don't know what I do wrong
Instead I'll try to write another sad song

The clouds are getting darker
And smiling's getting kind of harder
And I'm jealous of everyone I know
