"Fallen Angels" as written by Steven Tyler, Richie Supa and Joe Perry....
There's a candle burning in the world tonight
For another child who vanished out of sight
And a heart is broken, another prayer in vain
There's a million tears that fill a sea of pain

Sometimes I stare out my window
My thoughts all drift into space
Sometimes I wonder if there's a better place

(Tell me)
Where do fallen angels go
I just don't know
Where do fallen angels go
They keep falling

Now the times is frightening
Can't ignore the facts
There's so many people
Just slippin' through the cracks

So many ashes are scattered
So many rivers run dry
Sometimes your Heaven is Hell and you don't know why

(So listen)
Where do fallen angels go
I just don't know
Where do fallen angels go
They keep falling, falling, falling...

Can you hear me
Can you hear me
Somewhere out there there's a shining light
And I got to be with you tonight

And with all we're nowhere
We still pay the price
Yeah the Devil seems to get his way
In downtown paradise

Where do fallen angels go
I just don't know
Where do fallen angels go
They keep falling, falling, falling...

Where do fallen angels go, tell me
I just don't know
Where do fallen angels go
They keep falling, falling, falling...

There's a candle burning...

    General CommentSteven Tyler has given the rights to this song to Oprah Winfrey's Angel charity.

    The song is about children who run away from home or are abducted.

    General CommentI think this song talks about a mother who is waiting for her son to come back home, she´s waiting next to the window with a candle, and her son is likely in trouble because of drugs. All the lyrics fit quite well with this idea

    General CommentThis song just talks about all the mistakes our society is making. Although it's sad, it's really beautiful to find a song that makes us think about where we're going (we keep on falling, like fallen angels!)
