Someone tell me why
Would an angel
Pull the feathers from her wings
Pluck the feathers from her wings
Did she soar too high
Lost all control
When altitude she strives more
It's passing youth she's dying for
She'd sever every helping hand
Says I'm too strong to take this threat
I've buried myself in past failures

Never again my angel
Never again will wounds be left opened
Never again my angel
Never again will you fall from Heaven

So run away
You're good at that
Heart wrapped in thorns
So reclusive
And stow away to places that bear no name
And I swear they'll never find you

Independent
Walk casual
A veil disguising your appeal
A veil depriving all who's real
Once it is shed
Air becomes thin
You suffocate then you
Collapse
Grasping all you thought you had

She'd sever every helping hand
Says I'm too strong to take this threat
I've buried myself in past failures

Never again my angel
Never again will wounds be left opened
Never again my angel
Never again will you fall from Heaven

So run away
You're good at that
Heart wrapped in thorns
So reclusive
And stow away to places that bear no name
And I swear they'll never find you

(Eear star, come down
Be healed
You're broken)

Never again my angel
Never again will wounds be left opened
Never again my angel
Never again will you fall from Heaven

So run away
You're good at that
Heart wrapped in thorns
So reclusive
And stow away to places that bear no name
And I swear they'll never find you

So run away
You're good at that
Heart wrapped in thorns
So reclusive
And stow away to places that bear no name
And I swear they'll never find you

    She'd sever every helping hand
    Says I'm too strong to take this threat
    I've buried myself in past failures..

    General Commentrace the sun is such a great band.. can't believe more people don't know about them.. my favorite part of this song is this:

    Never again my angel
    Never again will wounds be left opened
    Never again my angel
    Never again will you fall from Heaven

    seems like he is telling someone he will care for them forever.

    General CommentAww man these guys are so amazing. Race the Sun is my top pick for bands to watch in 2005. You wait and see, they're gonna blow up. These guys have too much talent to be missed.
    To me, this song's about a girl who's really reclusive and runs away from all her problems. This is obviously not the way to go through life, though.
    Keep an eye out for Race the Sun, they're comin' up fast.

    General Commentwow. terrific. i just have to comment on my favorite part, "Someone tell me why
    Would an angel
    Pull the feathers from her wings
    Pluck the feathers from her wings
    Did she soar too high
    Lost all control
    When altitude she strives more." i love that. anyone who can write "So run away
    You're good at that
    Heart wrapped in thorns
    So reclusive
    And stow away to places that bear no name
    And I swear they'll never find you" is brilliant. i have no doubt that theyre gonna come up fast.
