I said, "Girl, you're a wreck and you must be confused
As we both know, the ground's no place for you:
Angels fly, not fall in love"

She said, "Boy, you're a mess and you must be confused
As we both see, the ground's stuck to my shoes
I can't move, I'm in love"

And just know if the wind blows a little too hard
I'll be the first tree to wrap you up in his arms
If my branches hurt your wings
If my branches hurt your wings
Just don't fly away

I said, "Girl, you're a sunset when no one's around
When the moon takes your place, you let everyone out
Just to see how small you can be"

She said, "Boy, you're a crash that just hasn't happened yet
I am the concrete, just happy we met
I can't move, I'm in love"

And just know if the wind blows a little too hard
I'll be the first tree to wrap you up in his arms
If my branches hurt your wings
If my branches hurt your wings
Just don't fly away

I said, "Girl, you're a wreck and you must be confused
As we both see, the ground's no place for you:
Angels fly
Yeah, they fly
Angels fly
And they fly"

And just know if the wind blows a little too hard
I'll be the first tree to wrap you up in his arms
If my branches hurt your wings
If my branches hurt your wings
If my branches hurt your wings
Just don't fly away
