(The Angels Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes

This song is by Two Tons Of Steel and appears on the album Transparent (2003).

Oh well I used to be disgusted
I'm tryin' 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

Oh-oh, 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 it still hurts me just to say it

Now I know that she's disgusted
She's tired of the abuse
She's 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?

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 said, "I'm so happy, I could die"
She said, "Drop dead," and left with another guy
That's what you get when you go chasing after vengeance
Ever since you punctured me, baby, that's been my sentence

Well I used to be disgusted
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 won't get any older
Now the angels wanna wear my red shoes

Red shoes, the angels wanna wear my red shoes
Red shoes, the angels wanna wear my red shoes
Red shoes, the angels wanna wear my red shoes
Red shoes, the angels wanna wear my red shoes
Red shoes
Red shoes
