what do you see that's so beautiful
that it always reflects in your eyes?
the world casts no shadow across your sweet face
you're an angel and i'm gonna cry

when i used to see you i'd smile
the pretty girl up on the sign
then i'd thank god for mine
now she's leaving and i need an angel to keep me from crying

you're an angel
and i'm gonna cry
cuz i can't have you
and i'm not gonna try

i'm wasting this dream with my troubles
let me rest in your arms for a while
say you love me cuz when i wake up dear
you'll just be an angel and i'm gonna cry

say you love me cuz when i wake up dear
you'll just be an angel and i'm gonna cry

    General CommentI think Chris is saying that after your girlfriend leaves you, sometimes you just need to get really really high and fantasize about somebody you saw on a billboard along the highway.

    Damn this song is sad.

    General CommentI think it's about just wanting someone to comfort you - someone else's arms to fall into.

    I agree - it is so sad.
