If I could see what angels see
I'd [sooner] crack my eyes
[Cataract glaze across the big sky]
If I could go where angels go
[I'd slide across the floor]
[And sneak in like a splinter] under your door

Breaking in the summer sun
[Where they whirred/were they worried] about me

Don't say a word about me

When the summer's done
Don't wait

If I could walk where angels walk
[I'd cut out before the wine]
Get a couple down before I get mine
I could take what angels take
[I'd take it to my back]
Never saw life collapsing like that

[Breaking in the winner's cup]
[Where] they whirl about me
Witness full of self-control
Don't say a word about me

When the summer's done
Don't wait

If I could wear what angels wear
[I'd tear it] limb to limb
[Playing "california"] when she comes in

If I could see what angels see
I'd [sooner] crack my eyes
Cataract [glaze across the big sky]
Were they worred about me
When the summer's done
Don't wait
