Lyrics

(Source: as heard)

Darling, I don't like it when you say
Bad things about yourself.
Oh, please don't talk that way.
You are so beautiful.
I wish you could see
What I see.
You're an angel, angel,
Just like you always wanted to be.
You're an angel, angel,
Just like you always wanted to be.
So what if you did wrong things
When you knew no better? The thing
Is to draw a line
And be the best you can
At any given time.
So what if some don't love you?
That just means they do not know your heart
Is like the deepest ocean,
Full of kindness and compassion.
You're an angel, angel,
Just like you always wanted to be.
You're an angel, angel,
Just like you always wanted to be.
And I don't want no wedding band,
No shiny jewel for my hand.
I only want a golden chain
To hang my love upon,
To hang my love upon,
To hang my love upon.
Don't hide your eyes from mine.
Angels do fall down sometimes.
They do get blind--
It happens all the time.
Oh, let your eyes look into mine.
You know I loved you all the time,
I loved you all the time.
Oh, how I missed you
when you were in mine.
So many tears I cried
Just like a little child. But now
Those days are gone;
I'm by your side.
I love you, even after I die.
You're an angel, angel,
Just like you always wanted to be.
You're an angel, angel,
Just like you always wanted to be.
And I don't want no wedding band,
No shiny jewel for my hand.
I only want a golden chain
To hang my love upon,
To hang my love upon,
To hang my love upon.
