Angels Hung Around Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I've been had and I've been held
with the ghosts at bay
And I've been oaked and I've been doped
and carried away.

I've been charred and I've been scarred
on my own face,
but I never thought I'd see you as I did
today.

'Till the angels hung around
'Till the angels hung around
'Till the angels hung around
as they carried me away.

I've been clubbed and I've been snubbed
by the dogs of LA.
And I've been burned and I've been learned
in the same city.

I've been whored and I've been gored.
I've been less and I've been more,
but I never thought I'd see you
as I did today.

'Till the angels hung around
'Till the angels hung around
'Till the angels hung around
as they carried me away.

ooh oooh (etc)

You were stuck in the badlands,
acting like a bad, bad man.
I've been photographed and painted up,
and I've been in love only once.

And I've feared the best and loved the worst,
and insisted that I go first.
And watched your eyes as they poured,
and I never really loved you more,
and I never thought I'd see you
as I did today.

'Till the angels hung around
'Till the angels hung around
'Till the angels hung around
as they carried you away.

And they put you in the ground
when the angels hung around.
And the angels hung around
as they carried me away.
