​Harry

This song is by Daniel Lanois and appears on the album Here Is What Is (2007).

We're travelling at full speed and your heels
Are sliding down that muddy hollow
You've lost your grip and the distant call is feeble
There's nothing you can follow

Desperation sends a shock
To your brain now you must fight
Disintegrate the arms
Of your Brutus with her light

Harry, play for your angel tonight
Your angel tonight

Let the water pass
Let a stranger feel your power and esteem
Let them know your secrets
Your passions none have ever seen

While the beauties and the bloodless
Trample at your mat
Telling you do it again
But, Harry, watch your back

Harry, play for your angel tonight
Your angel tonight

Your messages are branded
On a face that holds a desperate ugly scream
You've been running your charisma
Down the walls of a rusted dream machine

As you're laying there in your Cuban heels
There's not much coming in
No transmissions nor interests
Nor offers on your skin

Harry, play for your angel tonight
Your angel tonight

She always reaches deep and tells you
She loves you from her lip
Till you feel the silence
Escaping down to your fingertips

Harry, play for your angel
Come on let's hear you sing
We want to see regret
Plummet down below the batting of her wing

Remember what it was like
To be driven to embrace
Before the years took their toll
On that pretty face

Harry, play for your angel tonight
Your angel tonight
She's coming tonight

Harry, play for your angel
She's coming tonight
She's coming tonight
