Listen to the angel sing
Listen to the joy it brings
Huddled underneath a cloud
I would just shout out loud
Why do I suffer so?!!!
Why do I want to go?
An angel says in disguise, “Until you learn the meaning of trust
Until you learn the meaning of light
Until you learn to rip off the night and day
You’re never gonna be alright
So c’mon and take a stand
And kick until you think you understand
Until you learn to rip on the night and day
You’re never gonna be Ok
Until you learn the meaning of light
You’re never gonna be alright”
What do you know about me?
How can you possibly see?
Without walking in my shoes, you’ll never taste enough of my blues
So put on your old fur coat, it’s 1973
You’ll never know enough of us
Until you learn the meaning of trust
Until you learn the meaning of light…

    General CommentI agree! I can't believe no one else has commented! Favorite part= "Why do I suffer so?!!! Until you learn the meaning of trust, you’re never gonna be alright" If you don't trust in something, or someone, or yourself especially, you're probably gonna be miserable.

    General CommentI first heard this song off of 'The Girl Next Door' (the one with emile hirsch and elisha cuthbert). I fell in love with this song the first time i heard it.
