My Angel

by Deborah Tadema

Do you see the angel, do you
Do you see my angel, I do

Do you hear the angel, do you
Do you hear my angel, I do

He really did not understand the night I would not take his hand
And I watched him cry
He begged me not to send him away but I did not want him to stay
I remember that awful night
I did not want to break his heart but I had found a brand new start
With another guy
And then I watched him walk away and did not ask him to stay
It was our first fight
He only wanted to be my man and he really did not understand
And that was the reason why

He aimed his car down a old dark road and turned off the lights
He pushed his foot to the floor and went faster than the speed of light
And oh the feeling the beautiful feeling when the car took flight
It went up into the night, through the heavens and out of sight
And now I want to tell him, and now I want to tell him
I just want to make things right

Do you listen to the angel, do you
Do you listen to my angel, I do

Do you talk to the angel, do you
Do you talk to my angel, I do

Then the guy would not take my hand and I really did not understand
And he watched me cry
I begged him not to send me away he did not want me to stay
Does he remember that awful night
Said he did not want to break my heart and he wanted a brand new start
But he did not tell me why
And then he watched me walk away and did not ask me to stay
That was not right
I wanted him to be my man and I really did not understand
And that was the reason why

I aimed my car down an old dark road and turned off the lights
I pushed my foot to the floor and went faster than the speed of light
And oh the feeling the beautiful feeling when the car took flight
It went up and to the night, through the heavens and out of sight
And now we are together and now we are together
Me and my Mr Right

And do you tell your angel, do you
Do you tell your angel, I do

Good night angel good night
Good night angel, good night
