The Angels

Album: Brave and Crazy (1989)
  • Sometimes I feel like an innocent one
    To deserve this fate what I have I ever done
    I know that I made all the rules
    But time can even change the hopeless ways of fools
    I love you tonight like I did yesterday
    I won't think of tomorrow or the price I pay
    I drink from the well my soul is dry
    I never know why

    All I want is for your love to be all mine
    But the angels won't have it
    All I want is just a little peace of mind
    But the angels won't have it
    I thought I had a piece of my soul left to sell
    I guess it's just as well
    'Cause the angels won't have it

    Who's looking after this see-through heart
    Someone up there isn't doing their part
    Oh Cupid you foolish boy
    You should take better aim with your brand new toy
    I love you tonight like I did yesterday
    I don't think of tomorrow or the price I pay
    I drink from the well my soul is dry
    I never know why

    All I want is for your love to be all mine
    But the angels won't have it
    All I want is just a little peace of mind
    But the angels won't have it
    I thought I had a piece of my soul left to sell
    I guess it's just as well
    'Cause the angels won't have it

    So if I die before I wake
    The innocent one whose heart could never break
    Lift me up take me out of this bed
    Watching the angels shake their heads
    Don't feel sorry for me baby honey don't you cry
    You can sell all of my clothes you will forget me by and by
    I'll be riding that train I'll be singing that song
    But I won't be gone for long
    'Cause the angels won't have it

    All I want is for your love to be all mine
    But the angels won't have it
    All I want is just a little peace of mind
    But the angels won't have it
    I thought I had a piece of my soul left to sell
    I guess it's just as well
