I've never been so lonely
In this desereted trail
Even though you hold my hand
Your hand is so cold and frail
Gentle breath and tenderness
Come words that you once told me
Somehow those words that you say
They make me much less lonely

crashes the cold of the night and roses all wither away
The night and the flower cannot overpower the words that I want you to say
You may slip and you may slide, but you got an angel by your side
Hold you in his arms, keep you safe from harm

I heard those words a thousand times before
And I've said them a thousand more
But hearing those words, believing those words
Was a thing I never did explore
See, I just wanted to be a better son, a better friend, a better man, a better whatever
So the next time I walk this path again I'll walk it with a true friend

You may slip and you may slide, but you got an angel by your side
Hold you in his arms, keep you safe from harm
You may slip and you may slide, but you got an angel by your side
Hold you in his arms, keep you safe from harm
You may slip and you may slide, but you got an angel by your side
Hold you in his arms, keep you safe from harm
Yeah...
Keep you safe from harm...
Yeah...
Keep you safe from harm...
Yeah...
Father in the sky, he loves you more than I


[SECOND PROGRESSION]
I'd rather be with you than without
Within you than about you
And I come to find out you want the same
Oh lord I want to breath you
May my every movement free you
From the place I've kept you locked up all these days

I'd rather be with you than without
Within you than about you
And I come to find out you want the same
Oh lord I want to breath you
May my every movement free you
From the place I've kept you locked up all these days

I'd rather be with you than without
Within you than about you
And I come to find out you want the same
Oh lord I want to breath you
May my every movement free you
From the place I've kept you locked up all these days

    General CommentThis is an amazing song! I've never heard it before. Ev Angel, you say? I'll have to look it up.
    It seems fairly straight forward. I love the line "I'd rather be with you than without you, within you than about you, and I come to find out you want the same."
    That's amazing, and so true! God doesn't want us to just be 'about' him. He doesn't want us to just be typical little Christians who do whatever the norm is for us. Sometimes it's what we're taught, but none of us really like that lifestyle. God wants us to be immersed in him, baptized, if you will, to be within him completely in an exclusive relationship. It's easy to settle for less, but you never will really want to in your deepest of hearts.
