An angel face smiles to me under a headline of tragedy
That smile used to give me warmth
Farewell, no words to say beside the cross on your grave
And those forever burning candles

Needed elsewhere to remind us of the shortness of our time
Tears laid for them, tears of love, tears of fear
Bury my dreams, dig up my sorrows
Oh, Lord why the angels fall first?

Not relieved by thoughts of Shangri-La
Nor enlightened by lessons of Christ
I'll never understand the meaning of the right
Ignorance lead me into the light

Needed elsewhere to remind us of the shortness of our time
Tears laid for them, tears of love, tears of fear
Bury my dreams, dig up my sorrows
Oh, Lord why the angels fall first?

Sing me a song of your beauty, of your kingdom
Let the melodies of your harps caress those whom we still need

Yesterday we shook hands, my friend
Today a moonbeam lightens my path, my guardian
