  • The angel of love was upon me
    And Lord, I felt so small
    The legs beneath me weakened
    I began to crawl

    Confused and contented
    I slithered around
    Reveal is beyond me
    I was lost, I was found

    The angel of love was upon me
    And Lord, I felt so weak
    I felt my tongue move in my mouth
    And I began to speak

    A strange kind of language I don't understand
    A babbling fountain I couldn't have planned

    Oh, leave me here forevermore
    I found the peace I've been searching for

    The angel of love was upon me
    And Lord, I felt so high
    I swear I could have reached up
    Placed my hands upon the sky

    A radiant rainbow was following me around
    With elevated senses, I can see and taste sound

    The angel of love was upon me
    And Lord, I felt so clean
    Like a preacher on Sunday
    My heart was serene

    I waded into the water
    I was bathed, I was drowned
    Like the sinners before me
    I knelt down on the ground

    Oh, leave me here forevermore
    I found the peace I've been searching for

    Oh, let me sleep forevermore
    I found the peace I've been searching for Writer/s: Martin Gore
