Friday morning when she walked out the door
She couldn't take anymore, so she tried to ignore
Her daddy, he wanted to settle the score
From all the little meetings they had had before
And all the secrets started taking their toll
Making daddy more bold, but it was bruising her soul
He didn't know that she had already told
Her mother already knows
And now the drama unfolds
As she says

"My, you're my angel in disguise
You look at me with gentle eyes
My, you're my angel in disguise
You saved me from that one last cry"

It's Friday evening and he's at it again
Another hour and then all the pressure begins
The phone keeps ringing so he finally gives in
To hear the voice of his wife asking, "Where have you been?"
He tells her, "I'll be home as soon as I can
So tuck the kids into bed
Cause time has slipped through my hands"
A pause and then she says she loves him again
Then it finally sets in that she's always been

My, you're my angel in disguise
You look at me with gentle eyes
My, you're my angel in disguise
You saved me from that one last cry
My, you're my angel in disguise
You look at me with gentle eyes
My, you're my angel in disguise
You saved me from that one last cry

It's Friday morning and she walked through the door
All of those thoughts from before, she no longer ignored
She's finally home, she sets her bags on the floor
But her mother wasn't there to hold her hand anymore
She heard her daddy, he was calling her name
She went back to his room but he wasn't the same
He said, "I'm sorry for the tears that you've cried
Will you ever forgive me?"
She said, "I've already tried"

My, you're my angel in disguise
You look at me with gentle eyes
My, you're my angel in disguise
You saved me from that one last cry
You're my angel in disguise
You look at me with gentle eyes
My, you're my angel in disguise

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it's about a dad doing drugs, the mom always coming back to him, but finally she doesn't.. and their daughter is hsving to go through all this bullshit. It's kinda weird, because this is exactly how it is for my best friend.. there's not a line in this damn song that is different from her every day life.

    He said I'm sorry for the tears that you've cried
    Will you ever forgive me
    She said I've already tried

    Those lines are the best.. because it's fucking true. My best friend's dad has been in so many rehabs.. and he won't stop. He's always trying to be cool with her, and she can't even look at him anymore. It's sad, but it's reality.

    General CommentI think the song is talking about rape to either the daughter or mom by the dad ... like when it says>>>>Her daddy, he wanted to settle the score
    From all the little meetings they had had before
    And all the secrets started taking their toll
    Making daddy more bold
    But it was bruising her soul
    He didn't know that she had already told
    Her mother already knows
    And now the drama unfolds
    As she says....... and then i think hes finnally realizing that hes wrong for what hes done at this part .. but shes had enough so shes done She heard her daddy, he was calling her name
    She went back to his room but he wasn't the same
    He said I'm sorry for the tears that you've cried
    Will you ever forgive me
    She said I've already tried
    She heard her daddy, he was calling her name
    She went back to his room but he wasn't the same
    He said I'm sorry for the tears that you've cried
    Will you ever forgive me
    She said I've already tried

    General Commenti think that the father just had a one night stand with the mom and she got pregnant. so he had to stay with her. and then he jsut starts to leave and do the same with other women he just breaks it off by telling her that he doesnt love her

    General CommentHere's the real meaning of the song, it's from an interview:

    Did you have a specific person or story in mind while writing “Angel in Disguise”?
    Rob: A father from a church that Noah and I were going to was abusing both the kids and the mom. We found out about it and brought it to the surface. I just thought about that story and how she [the mom] was an angel for the kids and really saved them from any more pain and emotional torture. The first verse was inspired by that, and then I took that and made it into my own story.

    General CommentWHen I started listening to the song iwas and still am pretty sure its about a daughter who is sexually abused by her father, tells the mother, the mom confronts the dad, and then the father is sorry and asks the girl for forgiveness.

    General CommentI never thought it was anything sexual...
    "Will you ever forgive me"
    "I've already tried"

    I think the message is to not take anything for granted, let the people you love know ("as he said 'youre my angel in disguise") before you lose them or their trust.

    My OpinionI think the song is about a father who is always drinking, and he repeatdly beats his wife, until she leaves and the daughter has to takeover her pain. Finally, he goes to rehab and his wife comes home. He tries to apologize for his actions, but she doesn't forgive him. This is exactly what my friend went through. She now lives with her mom. Its tough, but both she and I both now she'll pull through.
