Hull

I once wished on a star
When I was young, naive and playful
But the star didn't come through
I thought it was disgraceful, distateful.

I once dreamed me a dream
A wild imagination
But the truth couldn't stand up
To cross examination, interrogation.

But oh, when you're lying beside me
I swear that the angels guide me
Where ? I don't care, I just go.

And you do, do what you can
Pass a little friendly conversation
No great thoughts of man
That's well beyond your station, your situation.

But oh, when you're lying beside me
I swear that the angels guide me
Where ? I don't know, I just go.

And the dream's been wished on a star
And the star's wandering 'round Heaven
And you're here by my side
We're angels at eleven.
