lyrics

Angel
By Jeffrey Brian Liebowitz

Imagine your whole life was just an obstacle
But you believed your death would bring eternal peace
You finally got to Heaven and it's wonderful
Then Jesus Christ said, "Sorry but you'll have to leave"

I feel the Angel and she's telling me I’m just too late
She wants to let me in but she can't open the gates
I hear the Angel and she's whispering, "This must be earned"
So please remember everything you’ve learned

She loves me like a Mama loves her only son
She takes her wings and touches this guitar I strum
Everything she does is unconditional
She changed my definition of beautiful

Dying patiently waiting on God's ticket home
Clouding her reality because it sucks being all alone
Betting everything on a horse that is just too young
And now it seems her work is finally done

I tell the Angel that I never meant to make her cry
I'll take these lessons learned if one day I get to die
I hear the Angel tell me that she loves me with all her heart
And that we'll never be apart

A very long time ago out at sea
The pirates came coming to capture me
I was just a lobster in the Lion's Den
And there she was my mermaid to distract them
