Lyrics

ANGEL SONG

Written By: ROBIN MOXEY

ANGEL SONG (words and music by Robin Moxey)

She wants to wear love like a crown.
Enough heartache and pain to bring the whole world down.
Each goodbye is a new beginning,
Your can lose and still be winning too.

Chorus:
I saw an angel in the middle of the night.
Gave up the struggle and I just won the fight.
A life like mine, just might be all right…
With a life like mine.

Hey Baby, I feel like I’m gonna drown.
It‘s hard to breathe when you’re not around.
Each goodbye is a new beginning,
You can lose and still be winning too.

Chorus:
I saw an angel in the middle of the night.
Gave up the struggle and I just won the fight.
A life like mine, just might be all right…
With a life like mine.

Solo

Repeat chorus
