​Boy + Angel

This song is by Mike Doughty and appears on the album The Flip Is Another Honey (2012).

This song is a cover of "Boy + Angel" by ​Doveman.
The boy never fell as he ran across the plain
And home to winter
She flew beside him an angel of despair

And won't somebody tell him why the stars refuse to shine
There's laughter in the dark
And I can't sleep at night

And why must the night last till the day
Which never comes again

The mountain's drawing closer
The dawn is close behind
The boy runs on his legs don't falter now
The cold winds drive him on
But look you careful now
For all is withered where he runs

And won't somebody tell him why the stars refuse to shine
There's laughter in the dark
And I can't sleep at night

And why must the night last till the day
Which never comes again

A tunnel there beneath the mountain
The boy runs on his stride never slowing
The angel cannot follow
She turns her back and flies away
He runs through streets of ice now
And ever shall till spring returns

And won't somebody tell him why the stars refuse to shine
There's laughter in the dark
And I can't sleep at night

And why must the night last till the day
Which never comes again
