He searched for those wings that he knew
That this angel should have at her back
And although he can't find them
He really don't mind, 'cause he knows they'll grow back

And he reached for that halo that he knows
That she had when she first caught his eye
Although his hand came back empty
He's really not worried, 'cause he knows it still shines

I can't promise that I'll grow those wings
Or keep this tarnished halo shined
But I'll never betray your trust, angel mine

I search all the time on the ground
For our shadows cast side by side
Just to remind me that I haven't gone crazy
That you exist and are mine

And I know that your skin is as warm and as real
As that smile in your eyes
But I have to keep touching and smelling
And tasting for fear it's all lies

I can't promise that I'll grow those wings
Or keep this tarnished halo shined
But I'll never betray your trust, angel mine

Last night I awoke from the deepest of sleeps
With your voice in my head
And I could tell by your breathing that you were still sleeping
I repeated the words you had said

I can't promise that I'll grow those wings
Or keep this tarnished halo shined
But I'll never betray your trust, angel mine

I can't promise that I'll grow those wings
Or keep this tarnished halo shined
But I'll never betray your trust, angel mine
