ANGELS IN DISGUISE
Music & Lyrics
by Annika Fehling

See me coming cross the water
September laid to rest
I'm the oceans daughter
This is where I've got to be
to be free
to be me

Listen to the seven seas
the clashing of the waves
Big mother mothers me
I will put my trust in her
I believe
In her words

Maybe I
was a mermaid in my life before this
who knows
what shows
and even though
Dissillusion sometimes clouds my eyes
I suppose we are
Angels in Disguise
ahah ah ah

Dont think I dont know the dark
I've been to hell and back
but you've got to feed the spark
Believing is a way to make it all come true
It's up to you

Maybe I
was a mermaid in my life before this
who knows
what shows
and even though
Dissillusion sometimes clouds my eyes
I suppose we are
Angels in Disguise
ah ah ah ah

Maybe you broke your wings
Both one time and twice
Lost your way and felt like
you fell from paradise
But the truth you see
is you can choose to be
Remaining in light
We're Angels in Disguise

Maybe I
was a mermaid in my life before this
who knows
what shows
and even though
Dissillusion sometimes clouds my eyes
I suppose we are
Angels in Disguise

ah ah ah ah

WHEN THE RAIN COMES DOWN

Written By: Annika Fehling/ Tom Kimmel


When the rain comes down
On this bone-dry place
It’s the sweetest sound
It’s amazing grace
When the rain comes down
It washes my blues away

When the sun breaks out
And the clouds take shape
Sometimes I think
I can see your face
When the rain comes down
It washes my blues away

Where’er you may be, my dear
Do you dream of me down here

When the wind blows through
This two-bit town
I’d sail away
If I knew how
When the rain comes down
It washes my blues away

Wheree’er you may be, my dear
Do you dream of me down here

When this old heart break
It breaks so hard
The whold world shakes
Like an old box car
When the rain comes down
It washes my blues away

When the rain comes down
On this bone-dry place
It’s the sweetest sound
It’s amazing grace
When the rain comes down
It washes my blues away
