"Lips of an Angel" as written by Michael Rodden, Mark King, Brian Howes, Ross Hanson, Austin Winkler and Lloyd Garvey....
Honey, why are you calling me so late?
It's kinda hard to talk right now
Honey, why are you crying, is everything okay?
I gotta whisper 'cause I can't be too loud

Well, my girl's in the next room
Sometimes I wish she was you
I guess we never really moved on
It's really good to hear your voice saying my name
It sounds so sweet
Coming from the lips of an angel
Hearing those words - it makes me weak
And I never wanna say goodbye
But, girl, you make it hard to be faithful
With the lips of an angel

It's funny that you're calling me tonight
And, yes, I've dreamt of you too
And does he know you're talking to me?
Will it start a fight?
No, I don't think she has a clue

Well, my girl's in the next room
Sometimes I wish she was you
I guess we never really moved on
It's really good to hear your voice saying my name
It sounds so sweet
Coming from the lips of an angel
Hearing those words - it makes me weak
And I never wanna say goodbye
But, girl, you make it hard to be faithful
With the lips of an angel

It's really good to hear your voice saying my name
It sounds so sweet
Coming from the lips of an angel
Hearing those words - it makes me weak
And I never wanna say goodbye
But, girl, you make it hard to be faithful
With the lips of an angel
(And I never wanna say goodbye)
But, girl, you make it so hard to be faithful
With the lips of an angel

Honey, why are you calling me so late?

    General Commentthis song is about 2 people who are madly in love with eachother but aren't together for whatever reason. they both have moved on in thier lives but not let go of what they both had. they both miss eachother and still have that chemistry. its hard for him to be with his current gf everytime he hears her (ex") voice all those emotions start bursting and he doesn't want to hurt his new girl cuz he care for her but he doesn't love her he still is in love with his ex but her voice releases his inner flame of desire for her and he can't control thats what he means when he says "and i never want to say goodbye but girl you make it hard to be faithful with lips of an angel". no matter what or where they go or who thier with just by the sound of her voice brings the unite back together

    General Commenti'm going to clear this up this song isn't about cheating it is about fighting temptation anyone that has been in love and been called by an ex can agree a sent a sound a song will remind you of the good times when you were happy and you would like to have that feeling back he says this in the line my girls in the next room SOMETIMES i wish it was you the part where he sayd and i never wanna say good bye but girl you make it hard to be faithful he is saying i wanna keep talking but i know if i do it will lead to him being un faithful so he is stopping it befor it starts by saying goodbye you will always think of some one you truely love they have molded part of who you are and the whole grass is greener look on life if you listen to the words he is worried cause he doesn't know why she is calling and why she is up set

    My InterpretationTo me, this means he was in love with this other girl and they kinda lost contact and he started dating another girl. He's into her, but not as much as the other girl. When she calls him he misses her and everything they had. eBautiful song. <3 It makes me sad, because I'm going through this right now, and I'm the other girl..

    General CommentThe song is very catchy and until I was in a relationship I kinda liked it. Now i find it very messed up and wrong. When it's done, it should be done. No phone calls, no friendships (cuz it's not really 'friends').

    Song MeaningThe lyrics deal with the singer describing his feelings when his favored girlfriend from his past calls late at night, somewhat pleasantly interrupting his current relationship. More than once, a reference to the call being secret is made, and the singer expresses concern of a fight ensuing as a result. The song concludes just as it began, with the singer questioning to why she is calling so late, though the second (and last) time it is less literal and more figurative, with the underlying meaning "so late" not at night, but way too late in life; unable to continue the previous relationship. The song ends with the plot unresolved. According to a radio interview done in Atlanta, Georgia the lyrics are loosely based on an actual phone call incident that did happen.

    General CommentHe's in love with a girl and they broke up but they're not over eachother, yet they both have a b/f or g/f.
    He's telling her that he wants her back, but in his own words, but he also likes the girl he's with, but not as much as her.
    He also doesn't want her talking to him, because he thinks that her b/f will find out and it'll start a fight between them and he doesn't want her to get hurt.
    It's a really sad and romantic song.
    Performed great live.

    General CommentHe's got a girlfriend, however he's realy into this other girl but he isnt' sure if it's just a physical attraction or not, none the less he's crazy about her. He knows he shouldn't be with her because she has a boyfriend and he has a girlfriend. Still, he can't help but be attracted to her.
