I have a Guardian Angel
Keep him in my head
When I'm afraid and alone
I call him to my bed
I have a Guardian Angel
Who keeps bad things from me

The only way to ruin it would be for me
Not to trust me
The only way to ruin it would be for me
Not to trust me

I have a Guardian Angel
Who's often saved my life
Through malevolent storms and crystal drums
The Angel on my right
Has lifted me up and set me down
Always showing me what's right

And if my instinct proved me wrong
The Angel set it right
And if my instinct proved me wrong
The Angel set it right

Have a Guardian Angel
I keep him in my head
And when I'm havin' nightmares
He shows me dreams instead
I have a ring, I have a dress
I have an empty shell

By the books below tea cups
I've kept a kind of hell
By the books below tea cups
I've kept a kind of hell

Panic and anxiety
So often in my head
But I had a Guardian Angel
Who took care of me instead
The champagne cork the night light owl
A raven and a duck

The seed of pining parents
And your despairing love
The seed of pining parents
And your despairing love

Love and luck both have charmed lives
Can change all things about
I had a Guardian Angel
That's what this is all about
I have a Guardian Angel
I keep him in my head

When I'm alone and become afraid
He saved my life instead
When I'm alone and become afraid
He saved my life instead

Guardian Angel
Guardian Angel
Guardian Angel
