"I'm Not An Angel" as written by and Elizabeth Mae/dioguardi Hale....
You made a mistake
On the day that you met me and lost your way
You saw all the signs
But you let it go
You closed your eyes
I should of told you to leave
'Cause I knew all the time you couldn't handle me
But you're hard to resist
When you're on your knees
Begging me

I'll tear you down
I'll make you bleed eternally
Can't help myself
From hurting you when it's hurting me
I don't have wings
To fly with me won't be easy
'Cause I'm not an angel
I'm not an angel

Hate being that wall
That you hit when you feel like you gave it all
I keep taking the blame
When we both know that I'll never change

I'll tear you down
I'll make you bleed eternally
Can't help myself
From hurting you when it's hurting me
I don't have wings
To fly with me won't be easy
'Cause I'm not an angel
I'm not an angel

I wasn't always this way
I used to be the one with the halo
But that disappeared when I had my first taste
And fell from grace
It left me in this place
I'm starting to think maybe you like it

I'll tear you down
I'll make you bleed eternally
Can't help myself
From hurting you when it's hurting me
I don't have wings
To fly with me won't be easy
'Cause I'm not an angel
I'm not an angel

I'm not an angel [Repeat: x4]

    Song MeaningThe song is about a virgin girl who has sex with a guy who only wanted her for that. They fall in love, but the guy ends up having sex with other women anyways. It's about how she deals with the internal pain of loving that guy and losing her innocence, and how her internal battles caused her to lose her halo.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure I got the lyrics right. She kind of mumbles in some bits so it's a little hard to tell, but I got it as close as I could!

    General CommentFor some reason Halestorm lyrics (all of them) seem vapire made. And to me, this song is about love between a vampire and a human.

    General CommentThis song is showing us that the writer is "not an angel". This song starts with how Lzzy warned her loved one that she is not and angel, how she should have told them to leave. But, they were too irresistible because of the begging and kneeling. The chorus tells us that she wants revenge and the loved one to suffer.

    Song MeaningThe overall meaning of this song is that she was in a relationship with someone who wasn't able to manage her behavior, personality, or anything along those lines. The meaning of the chorus is simple "I can't help myself from hurting you and it's hurting me" "Flying with me won't be easy" She wants the relationship to prosper, but she knows that it won't, and even though she's hurting him and that affects her, she still tries to make it work.

    General CommentI've always thought it sounded like having anxiety or depression when entering a relationship.
    It won't be easy because they're constantly anxious and need reassurance.
    "But that disappeared when I had my first taste" first time being betrayed? Alternatively not being innocent in a non sexual way, used to be kind and caring but was pushed too many times and now is more likely to rebel.
