Back to Angels Would Fall lyrics

Angels Would Fall

The rope that's wrapped around me
Is cutting through my skin
And the doubts that have surrounded me
Are finding their way in
I keep it close to me, like a holy man prays
In my desperate hour
It's better, better that way

So I'll come by and see you again
I'll be such a very good friend
Have mercy on my soul
I will never let you know
Where my mind has been

Angels never came down
There's no one here
They want to hang around
But if they knew
If they knew you at all
Then one by one the angels
Angels would fall

I have crept into your temple
I have slept upon your pew
I have dreamed of the divinity
Inside and out of you

I want it more than truth
I can taste it on my breath
I would give my life
Just for a little, a little death

So I'll come by and see you again
I'll be just a very good friend
I will not look upon your face
I will not touch upon your grace
Your ecclesiastic skin

Angels never came down
There's no one here
They want to hang around
But if they knew
If they knew you at all
Then one by one the angels
Angels would fall
(Aah)
Angels
(Aah)
Angels would fall
(Aah)
Sweet angels
(Aah)

I'll come by and see you again
And I'll have to be a very good friend
If I whisper they will know
I'll just turn around and go
You will never know my sin

Angels never came down
There's no one here
They want to hang around
But if they knew
If they knew you at all
Then one by one the angels
Angels would fall

There's no one here
They want to hang around
But if they knew
If they knew you at all
Then one by one the angels
Angels would fall

Oh angels
Angels would fall
