Iris, Goo Goo Dolls, dan City of Angel

Bagi penyuka film, kalau menikmati lagu ini bisa jadi akan langsung mengingatkan pada City of Angel, film yang memang menampilkan lagu dari grup rock alternatif asal Amerika tersebut. Iris dari Goo Goo Dolls. Lagu ini dirilis bersama album keenam mereka, Dizzy Up the Girl.


Selain menjadi hit terbesarnya Goo Goo Dolls di Amerika, Iris juga berhasil memasuki wilayah lintas format musik. Dari modern rock radio ke pop and adult contemporary radio. Pada tahun lagu ini rilis, 1998, Iris berhasil menjadi nomor satu dari tangga lagu dari aneka format musik.

Barangkali popularitas Iris tak bisa dilepaskan dari si film sendiri. City of Angels, film yang dibintangi oleh Meg Ryan dan Nicolas Cage ini sukses secara komersil. Bercerita tentang malaikat yang jatuh cinta pada manusia. Kisah cinta absurd tapi manis, meski tak berakhir bahagia. 

Iris rilis sebagai single kedua dari film City of Angels. Single yang rilis pertama, Uninvited dari Alanis Morissette. Sedangkan single ketiga adalah Angel yang disuarakan Sarah McLachlan. Beberapa lagu lain lain di film ini juga menjadi hits.

Iris
And I'd give up forever to touch you
'Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't wanna go home right now

And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
When sooner or later it's over
I just don't wanna miss you tonight

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything feels like the movies
Yeah, you bleed just to know you're alive

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
