  • If ever I need you dear
    I find your love is gone
    Sign on the dotted line
    And try to take it home

    I left my lamp a-burning
    I left the front door open wide
    No sleep come the morning
    Wore it out with the tears I cried

    Are you gonna be my angel?
    The Devil's never gonna let me save my poor soul

    Are you gonna be my angel?
    The Devil's never gonna let me save my poor soul

    Are you gonna be my angel?
    The Devil's never gonna let me save my poor soul

    Shovel that shines like silver
    Digs a hole in the ground
    The gold ring that I gave you
    I found it laying 'round

    The hole ate up my mind
    The hole ate up my heart
    Your name's still on my lips
    When I whisper in the dark

    Are you gonna be my angel?
    The Devil's never gonna let me save my poor soul

    Are you gonna be my angel?
    The Devil's never gonna let me save my poor soul

    Are you gonna be my angel?
    The Devil's never gonna let me save my poor soul

    Are you gonna be my angel?
    The Devil's never gonna let me save my poor soul Writer/s: Amund Bjorklund, Espen Lind, Johnta Austin, Mikkel Eriksen, Tor Erik Hermansen
