  • And though I never got her name
    Or time to find out anything
    I loved her just the same
    And though I rode a different road
    And sang a different song
    I'll love her till my last breaths gone
    Like a river made of silver
    Everyone came running to the scene
    I was shot down in cold blood
    By an angel in blue jeans

    Late that night she got away
    I chased her to the turnpike
    Then lost her where the music never plays
    And though I rolled upon the stones and fell into the water
    I'll love her till my judgment day
    Like a sunrise made of white lies
    Everything was nothing as it seems
    I was shot down in cold blood
    By an angel in blue jeans

    I hear voices calling all around
    I keep falling down
    I think my heart could pound right out of me
    I see a million different ways
    To never leave this maze alive

    I woke up in somebody's arms
    Strange and so familiar
    Where nothing could go wrong
    Barely alive or nearly dead
    Somehow awake in my own bed
    And there you are
    Like a highway headed my way
    Life is but a dream
    I was shot down by your love
    My angel in blue jeans, oh Writer/s: AMUND BJORKLUND, ESPEN LIND, PAT MONAHAN
