​(Angels Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes

This song is by Hem and appears on the EP I'm Talking With My Mouth (2002).

Oh I used to be disgusted
And now I try to be amused
But since their wings have got rusted
You know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes
But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain
That's when I knew that I could not refuse
And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes

I was watching while you're dancing away
Our love got fractured in the echo and sway
How come everybody wants to be your friend?
You know that it still hurts me just to say it

Oh, I know that she's disgusted
'Cause she's feeling so abused
She gets tired of the lust
But it's so hard to refuse
How can you say that I'm too old
When the angels have stolen my red shoes

Oh, I said I'm so happy, I could die
She said drop dead, then left with another guy
That's what you get if you go chasing after vengeance
Ever since you got me punctured this has been my sentence
Oh I used to be disgusted
And now I try to be amused
But since their wings have got rusted
You know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes
Angels wanna wear my red shoes
Angels wanna wear my red shoes
