  • Go ahead and bark after dark
    Fallen star, I'm your one call away
    Motel halls, neon walls
    When night falls, I-I am your escape

    When you lay alone, I ache
    Something I wanted to feel

    If you've been waitin' for fallin' in love
    Babe, you don't have to wait on me
    'Cause I've been aimin' for Heaven above
    But an angel ain't what I need

    Not anyone, you're the one
    More than fun, you're the Sanctuary
    'Cause what you want is what I want
    Sincerity

    Souls that dream alone lie awake
    I'll give you somethin' so real

    If you've been waitin' for fallin' in love
    Babe, you don't have to wait on me
    'Cause I've been aimin' for Heaven above
    But an angel ain't what I need

    Pull me oh-so close
    'Cause you never know
    Just how long our lives will be

    If you've been waitin' for fallin' in love
    Babe, you don't have to wait on me
    'Cause I've been aimin' for Heaven above
    But an angel ain't what I need Writer/s: Daniel Maurice Wilson, George Kusunoki Miller, Justin Louis Raisen, Luke A. C. Niccoli
