Angels Like You

Album: Plastic Hearts (2020)
Charted: 66
  • Flowers in hand, waiting for me
    Every word in poetry
    Won't call me by name, only "Baby"
    The more that you give the less that I need
    Everyone says I look happy
    When it feels right

    I know that you're wrong for me
    Gonna wish we never met on the day I leave
    I brought you down to your knees
    'Cause they say that misery loves company
    It's not your fault I ruin everything
    And it's not your fault I can't be what you need
    Baby, angels like you can't fly down here with me
    I'm everything they said I would be
    La-la-la
    I'm everything they said I would be

    I'll put you down slow, love you, goodbye
    Before you let go, just one more time
    Take off your clothes, pretend that it's fine
    A little more hurt won't kill you
    Tonight mother says "You don't look happy"
    Close your eyes

    I know that you're wrong for me
    Gonna wish we never met on the day I leave
    I brought you down to your knees
    'Cause they say that misery loves company
    It's not your fault I ruin everything
    And it's not your fault I can't be what you need
    Baby, angels like you can't fly down here with me
    I'm everything they said I would be

    Oh, ah, ah

    I know that you're wrong for me
    Gonna wish we never met on the day I leave
    I brought you down to your knees
    'Cause they say that misery loves company
    It's not your fault I ruin everything
    And it's not your fault I can't be what you need
    Baby, angels like you can't fly down here with me, oh-oh
    Angels like you can't fly down hell with me
