Lyrics


Angel

The angel of love was upon me

And Lord I felt so small

The legs beneath me weakened

And I began to crawl

Confused and contented

I slithered around

With feelings beyond me

I was lost, I was found


The angel of love was upon me

And Lord I felt so weak

I felt my tongue move in my mouth

And I began to speak

A strange kind of language

I don't understand

A babbling fountain

I couldn't have planned


Oh leave me here forevermore

I've found the peace I've been searching for


The angel of love was upon me

And Lord I felt so high

I swear I could have reached up

Placed my hands upon the sky

A radiant rainbow was following me around

With elevated senses I could see and taste sound


The angel of love was upon me

And Lord I felt so clean

Like a preacher on Sunday

My heart was serene

I waded into the water

I was bathed, I was drowned

Like all sinners before me

I knelt down on the ground


Oh leave me here forevermore

I've found the peace I've been searching for

Oh let me sleep forevermore

I've found the peace I've been searching for
