  • I've said it once and I'll say it again
    I've got something hanging over my head
    I was laying on your shoulder
    Perfectly content
    Until you told me all over again

    I ain't got no sob story to write
    But just like everyone else I'm living this life an
    Don't need to win me over
    And there ain't no other side
    To shelter me from all the wrong where I decide

    But you say we don't mess around
    You've got no freedom to come down
    We don't take angels from the sky
    Oh no
    But we don't mess around
    You're meant to be among the clouds
    Cause you're an angel
    But that's a lie
    Oh oh oh

    Well I suppose you think that I'm so flattered to hear
    That I'm a whispered conscience in your ear, yeah
    And that's exactly the reason that I never fit in here
    Well nothings ever that black and white my dear
    No

    But you say we don't mess around
    You've got no freedom to come down
    We don't take angels from the sky
    Oh no
    We don't mess around
    You're meant to be among the clouds
    Cause you're an angel
    But that's a lie
    Oh oh oh

    I'm not your angel darling
    I'm not your angel darling
    I am never gonna be

    I'm not your angel darling
    I'm not your angel darling
    I am never gonna be

    We don't mess around
    You've got no freedom to come down
    We don't take angels from the sky
    Oh no no no
    But we don't mess around
    You're meant to be among the clouds
    Cause you're an angel
    But that's a lie [Repeat: x3]
