"Saints And Angels" as written by and Victoria Banks....
We're only human baby
We walk on broken ground
We lose our way
We come unwound

We turn in circles baby
We're never satisfied
We fall from grace
Forget we can fly

But through all the tears that we cry
We'll survive

'Cause when we're torn apart
Shattered and scarred
Love has the grace to save us
We're just two tarnished hearts
But in each others arms
We become saints and angels

I love your imperfections
I love your everything
Your broken heart
Your broken wings

I love you when you hold me
And when you turn away
I love you still
And I'm not afraid

'Cause I know you feel the same way
And you'll stay

'Cause when we're torn apart
Shattered and scarred
Love has the grave to save us
We're just two tarnished hearts
But in each others arm
We become saints and angels

These feet of clay
They will not stray

'Cause when we're torn apart
Shattered and scarred
Love has the grace to save us
We're just two tarnished hearts
But in each others arms
We become saints and angels

    General CommentI love this song, I dont know.It sounds like she is using christian symbols to create a point, but this song isnt religious drivel, it sounds very un biased and secular in the way it plays out.
    I also love Sara Evans, she is just about one of the only country artists I can still stand.

    General CommentTo me this song says that no matter how hard life gets for us we can still get through things. There's a determined tone to this song, "These feet of clay, they will not stray," that encourages and inspires me to keep pushing forward in life no matter how depressed or down I get.

    General CommentI listened to this song a lot after my boyfriend and I broke up and he was dating someone else. He would always come to me and ask for my advice and such and this lyric:

    "We're just two tarnished hearts
    When in each other's arms
    We become saints and angels"

    reminded me of those nights when he'd come talk to me about her and any fight they had, and I made him feel better & because I wasn't over him, his being there with me made me feel better. And this:

    "These feet of clay
    They will not stray"

    reminds me of how I stayed by his side and kept wanting to be with him, waiting for when they'd break up. I guess that payed off because we're together now, but this song always takes me back to those times.

    General CommentAren't saints and angels the same thing? Saints become angels on the other side? The exception that proves the rule is Juan Pablo, who has never been a saint and is, in fact, a villain.

    General CommentOne of my favourite Sara songs - It's just about how love can save us, to me, it's kind of religious (I.e Jesus can save, by loving), but it's really a love song.
