  • Wings of angels tears of saints
    Prayers and promises won't bring you back
    Come to me in dreams again
    Wings of angels tears of saints

    I lost you on a winter's day
    In that cold city far away
    A city by a river deep
    With promises you could not keep
    A place where you had gone to try
    A place where you had longed to fly
    A city smiling when you cried
    A city sleeping when you died

    Wings of angels tears of saints
    Prayers and promises won't bring you back
    Come to me in dreams again
    Wings of angels tears of saints

    In that cathedral by the hill
    We stood and smiled in happier days
    The fields along the river's edge
    You fished and traveled hungrily
    Your light burned in that sunny sky
    Your voice above the water rang
    I'd give it up give all I have
    For one more chance to hear you sing

    Wings of angels tears of saints
    Prayers and promises won't bring you back
    Come to me in dreams again
    Wings of angels tears of saints

    Child of thunder in the dark child whose voice was like a lark
    Child whose spirits lifted hearts child of many beauties

    When the birds flock to the south
    When the wind calls to the north
    You are in the falling snow
    You are beauty going forth
    You are heat and you are light
    Sun above the mountain's peak
    I would give the sun and moon
    Once more just to hear you speak

    Wings of angels tears of saints
    Prayers and promises won't bring you back
    Come to me in dreams again
    Wings of angels tears of saints
