It's not like I haven't tried and tried
It isn't where I look but what I find
I've been keeping clear
Of stepping on the cracks
This just enough to keep me coming back

Oh I'm waiting for better angels
Oh I'm waiting for any lead
And though oh oh my case looks fatal
I'm still hoping better angels come to me

Better late, than not at all
Better to make the break, than take the fall
I wouldn't mind hanging on
If I could find out what I'm hanging from

Oh I'm waiting for better angels
Oh oh I'm waiting for any lead
And though oh oh my case looks fatal
I'm still hoping better angels come to me

I'm waiting for better angels
Oh I'm waiting for any lead
And though oh oh my case looks fatal
I'm still hoping better angels come to me
Still hoping better angels come to me
Still hoping better angels come to me

    General CommentHeard at the end of a CSI: Miami episode. This song is beautiful. The songwriter - Blake Morgan has an equally beautiful version.

    General CommentYeah, so did I. It sounds like Lesley Gore sings it with a lot of emotion in her voice.
