"Angel" as written by and Espen Lind Amund Bjorklund....
I'm wishing the bath water clean
She hides in the back and is unseen
I take off the mask that surrounds me
Look me in the face, what do you see?
I feel like a boy of age thirteen
My body grows up, but my mind stays the same
Look em in the face, what do you see?
How do you tell an angel
That you don't believe in God
Why do I feel like such a stranger?
I look around and all my friends are gone

Would you be me?
Cause I would be you
You'd be happy if you wanted to
Would you trade me?
Cause I would trade you
You'd be happy if you wanted to

How do you tell your father
That you want him to notice you
Why does it seem like such a bother?
When Mom says â??He'd be better off deadâ??
But I want to see you
I still want to see you
Would you call me?
It's not hard to
I'm the first one, you gave birth to
Would you write me
On my birthday?
Graduation was yesterday
How do you hold the special victim?
When they push you away
When they've been
Raped on the inside
Torn on the outside
Feel dirt and ugly
From the strain that they try to hide
Touched in private places
Embarrassed faces
Too scared to ask for helpâ?¦why?

Would you be me?
Cause I would be you
You'd be happy if you wanted to
Would you trade me?
Cause I would trade you
You'd be happy if you wanted to

I'm wishing the bath water clean
She hides in the back and is unseen
I take off the mask that surrounds me
Look me in the face, what do you see?

    General CommentI always thought this song was a combination of two...I'm a lil confused so maybe someone can help me...

    I always thought this song was really about a girl getting raped and him sort of being the rapist but blaming his dad for being the way he is...

    Can someone please put the true meaning of this together...

    General CommentThis song is awesome. It is so true. "I feel like a boy of age 13, my body changes but my mind stays the same". That is so articulate and true. I think this song means that he feels like a stranger to the world, he's hiding from everything. I freaking LOVE this song!

    General CommentIn the part of the song where it goes..

    How do you tell your Father,
    That you want him to notice you?
    Why does this seem like such a bother?
    When mom says you'd be better off dead
    But I want to see you
    I still want to see you

    I always thought I heard "He'd be better off dead" Instead of "You'd be better off dead"..Anyone else here that?

    General Commentif you listen to more songs by blue october , you'll notice he mentions his father a bit more in a few songs (cant remember which ones....) but i think this song just shows that maybe he's had issues with his dad ? i belive so, also it's "trade" not treat >.> cna someone fix that ?
