I can watch little girl from the back of my car
I see you and show at the place that you are
Groceries spillin' up out of your bag
Thinkin' you'll end up a penniless hag

But I see the girl that you are deep inside
Won't you allow me to give you a ride
I can console you and give you kiss
Show you that you can do better than this

Angel girl
In a cold dark world
I'm gonna be your man
Angel girl
In a cold dark world
I'll make you understand

I know that you're thinkin' I'm trying to score
But deep in your heart you know that I'm more
Than a cat or a scoundrel
Now that I've found you, I don't want to lose you
How can I prove, you know that I am sincere
You don't need to fear
I'm not like the others; I'll be like a brother
I will protect you, never disrespect you
But if you love then I'll be here to sex you

Angel girl
In a cold dark world
I'm gonna be your man (I'm gonna be there)
Angel girl
In a cold dark world
I'll make you understand

It might take awhile to get with the style
Life at the end of the miracle mile
But you're gonna love the rising above
All the trash that is sweeping you under the rug

I'm gonna be there

Angel girl
In a cold dark world
I'm gonna be your man (I'm gonna be there)
Angel girl
In a cold dark world
I'll make you understand

    General CommentThe only decent part of this song (in my opinion) is the chorus.

    General CommentThis is my favorite song on the cd. I think it's lyrics are pretty self-explanitory.

    General CommentI like the differing tones between the chorus and the verses are very cool. It's so much darker musically during the verses, but during the chorus it's very up lifting and hopeful.

    Completely out of place, but that's what we love about Rivers, he's being all sweet and nice and then comes with a "I wonder how you touch yourself" that makes you open your eyes in utter astonishment.

    My InterpretationJust because someone is poor and/or finds themselves stationed in a lower place in life, without their control, doesn't mean they aren't worthy of loving and being loved, and I think that this is what this song is really about.

    General CommentYeah i think of it like Radiohead's "creep". Well meaning guy can't help but sound awkward when talking to hot girl. The alternating sound I think show the contrast between his intentions and how he comes off to her.
