Lyrics

ANGEL

VERSE 1

The angel spreads her wings
Flies off to greater things
She knows she's got to find a way to believe
For years she's had no home
Been lovin on a heart of stone
And now she's found a face she can not deceive
Sometimes when a child's heart is torn apart
They tend to lose their sight
Can't determine what's wrong or right
But she's still got her youth
and this love to teach her truth
And now it's time to make her way on towards the light

CHORUS

Trust ain't easy
But it starts with you and I
The worst is over
but we made it through alive
And there's so much more
That we got to do
The only one standing in your way is you

There ain't no villain baby
You've got to lose your shame
You know that in the end
There's no one left but you to blame
Don't let your feelings fool you
Don't let your anger rule you
You've got to find away
To wake up every day

VERSE 2

The boy becomes a man
But needs a little helping hand
It seems he never learned just how to survive
He's fallen far behind
by living in a clouded mind
And now he questions why it is he's alive
Sometimes when a child's heart has been torn apart
They don't know how to give
They don't where to start
But he's still got his youth
and these friends to teach him truth
And now it's time to make his way onto the light


CHORUS

Trust ain't easy
But it starts with you and I
The worst is over
but we made it through alive
And there's so much more
That we got to do
The only one standing in your way is you

There ain't no villain baby
You've got to lose your shame
You know that in the end
There's no one left but you to blame
Don't let your feelings fool you
Don't let your anger rule you
You've got to find away
To wake up every day
