lyrics

So it's a new day, and I do say
That things just don't feel right
'Cause I ain't been dreaming for a long long time
But then she came back last night
She was my angel and I kissed her
But then she flew right out the door
Now I'm just lying around

She writes me letters from heaven
They drop right through the clouds
But they're all so blurry, I try to read them
But I can't remember how
I look for my glasses, call up the bookstore
Find me a celestial dictionary please
Then I wake up and I'm all alone

I want you
Yeah I want you bad
But you just keep slipping away
I want you
Yeah I want you bad
But you just keep slipping away

Dear angel of mercy
If you don't want to hurt me
Maybe you could be
A bit more open about when you plan to come and go
'Cause every time I swoon
You leave me too soon
What'd I get myself into
I see you waving goodbye before I've said hello
I'm bitter from tasting
All my frustration
You've got me wasting
All my time, just trying to dream you back
And have you for myself

She says she's an angel, angel
She'll find you in the night
The minute you fall for her she'll vanish in blinding light
Oh she's an angel, angel
She won't stay on the ground
Maybe I'm just too down to earth for a lady of the clouds
She's an angel, angel
