I'm No Angel
by Dido

  • If you gave me just a coin for every time we say goodbye
    Well I'd be rich beyond my dreams, I'm sorry for my weary life
    I know I'm not perfect but I can smile
    And I hope that you see this heart behind my tired eyes

    If you tell me that I can't, I will, I will, I'll try all night
    And if I say I'm coming home, I'll probably be out all night
    I know I can be afraid but I'm alive
    And I hope that you trust this heart behind my tired eyes

    'Cause I'm no angel, but please don't think that I won't try and try
    I'm no angel, but does that mean that I can't live my life
    I'm no angel, but please don't think that I can't cry oh
    I'm no angel, but does that mean that I won't fly

    I know I'm not around each night
    And I know I always think I'm right
    And I can believe that you might look around

    'Cause I'm no angel, but please don't think that I won't try and try
    I'm no angel, but does that mean that I can't live my life
    I'm no angel, but please don't think that I can't cry oh
    I'm no angel, but does that mean that I won't fly. Writer/s: DIDO ARMSTRONG, PASCAL GABRIEL, PASCAL RICHARD MARCEL GHISLAIN GABRIEL, PAUL TERENCE STATHAM
