​Angel Gone

This song is by Beat Happening and appears on the album Music to Climb the Apple Tree By (2003).

How dare you cry
(Angel gone)
Cheat and lie, cheat and lie
(Angel gone)
When you have no-one tomorrow
There'll be no kind hearts to borrow
Your galley slaves stop rowin'
You don't know where you're goin'
But you go there all the time

You were an angel
Turned into a stranger
Heart-shaped wings and halo
You loved to spin your fables
To the music we were makin'
Then the harp strings started breakin'
It's got cold in wintertime

It must be tryin'
Angel gone
To wear a halo all the time
Angel gone
When it gets a little crooked
You find another saint who's lookin'
Still your heaven is in ruins
You don't know what you're doin'
But you do it all the time
You do it all the time
You do it all the time

Angel gone
Angel gone

I see you alone and I worry
The past starts gettin' blurry
Got no-one to talk to
And I miss your shouldn't-ought-to's
And I miss your tender sighs

Should we try
(Angel gone)
Crashing heaven one more time
(Angel gone)
Grab Gabriel's horn, start callin'
All those angels who have fallen
Playin' Russian roulette with Satan
We'll ram those pearly gates in
Saint Peter he won't mind
Saint Peter he won't mind

Angel gone
Angel gone
Angel gone
Angel gone
Angel gone
Angel gone
Angel gone
Angel gone
