"Angels" as written by Mario Mendell Winans and Michael Carlos Jones....
International caller on my line;
Tomorrow's just another distance.
Put in a call to a friend of mine
Just to say hello
But what if there were angels?
Oh, sometimes i swear that I can see them there:

Making jokes and wearing black
And speaking English just like me;
Bright and kind and young and good,
So come on, you,
I know that we could still be that way.
What do you say?

It's two a.m. and I'm feeling fine,
Staying up late with these men of mine.
I've seen the angels and the things they do and every one
Just makes me think of you.
So come on.

Making jokes and wearing black
And wearing black and wearing black
And they're right and good
And wearing black
And just like you
And always on my mind.
Just the whole time.
Angels

I can see them.
Here they come now.
There's thousands of them.
They're bearing you up.
They're holding you up.
I want to hold you in my arms.

    General CommentI've been a fan a long while - this is his best song. He said at a concert I attended that it was inspired by the film Wings of Desire. I think the "making jokes and wearing black" gets at that directly.

    The aching of the "hold you in my arms" line isn't done justice in the lyrics. There's a real punch to his delivery there.
