"Angelica" as written by and Jack Antonoff....
In light just bleed, Angelica
Don't say the lights would not change cause I've seen the gray
Our lives, untouchable
When you see your epic is all in flames

Such coy and winsome lies
Aloft she cries, so high
Thick lovers carry on a passive song
The angel lilts in vain

"We are the ill-advised," she said through a disguise
Fancy and short

Fall asleep with all the things you said to me
Running out of time

I'm not crawling

So hide behind what's weak and point the freaks
To a place that lights your name
So here's some alcohol to shake the fall
A drink that frames the need

And if you run for fame and hold such disdain
Everlong

So walk along the lines
And what you know is everything you had in store
And what you thought that you'd adore

You can't hold all you left behind

In light just bleed, Angelica
Don't say the lights could not change cause I've seen the gray
Our lives, untouchable
When you see your epic is all in vain

The spotlight burns inside of me
Cause Bravery is holding my two hands so high in the air
With each breath Angelica sighs

    General CommentThe full lyrics for Angelica as recorded on their release For You My Dear are as follows: (From the lyrics sheets inside)

    In light just bleed, Angelica
    Don't say the lights would not change cause I've seen the gray
    Our lives, untouchable
    When you see your epic is all in flames.

    Such coy and winsome lies
    Aloft she cries, so high.
    Thick lovers carry on a passive song
    The angel lilts in vain.

    "We are the ill-advised", she said through a disguise
    Fancy and short.

    Fall asleep with all the things you said to me
    Running out of time

    I'm not crawling.

    So hide behind what's weak and point the freaks
    To a place that lights your name.
    So here's some alchohol to shake the fall
    A drink that frames the need.

    And if you run for fame and hold such disdain
    Everlong

    So walk along the lines,
    And what you know is everything you had in store,
    And what you thought that you'd adore.

    You can't hold all you left behind.

    Fall asleep with all the things you said to me
    Running out of time
    In light just bleed, Angelica.
    Don't say the lights could not change cause I've seen the gray
    Our lives, untouchable
    When you see your epic is all in vain.

    The spot light burns inside of me
    Cause bravery is holding my two hands so high in the air
    With each breath, Angelica sighs.
