She laughed at the time
Time had stopped
Her jaw was locked
The mileage was already off the clock

Stumbling through irrelevant crowds to make their rendezvous
She travels, education class, reading poems on the tube
This corner of England leads on to feed her youth

Hooked in for the night
He christened her with a name
She closed in back towards him
And they formed a crescent shape
Human is the moon on a bed sheet sky of white
Down below the trains were rattling
Through the night, the Angel
Through the night, the Angel

She laughed at his smile
The door he leapt
The latch was dropped
His heart was quick, her heart had stopped

He's sitting on his haunches by the bath while she unpacks
While the ice cube of anxiety goes tumbling down her back
Their lives, they are silenced by the trains along the track

Hooked in for the night
He christened her with a name
She closed in back towards him
And they formed a crescent shape
Human is the moon on a bed sheet sky of white
Down below the trains were rattling
Through the night, the Angel
Through the night, the Angel

Oh, hooked in for the night
He christened her with a name
She closed in back towards him
And they formed a crescent shape
Human is the moon on a bed sheet sky of white
Down below the trains were rattling
Through the night, through the night
