"Angel mine" as written by and Michael Edward Timmins....
He searched for those wings that he knew
That this angel should have at her back
And although he can't find them
He really don't mind
Because he knows they'll grow back
And he reached for that halo that he knows
That she had when she first caught his eye
Although his hand came back empty
He's really not worried
'cause he knows it still shines

I can't promise that I'll grow those wings
Or keep this tarnished halo shined
But I'll never betray your trust
Angel mine

I search all the time on the ground
For our shadows cast side by side
Just to remind me that I haven't gone crazy
That you exist and are mine
And I know that your skin is as warm and as real
As that smile in your eyes
But I have to keep touching and smelling
And tasting for fear it's all lies

I can't promise that I'll grow those wings
Or keep this tarnished halo shined
But I'll never betray your trust
Angel mine

Last night I awoke from the deepest of sleeps
With your voice in my head
And I could tell by your breathing
That you were still sleeping
I repeated those words that you had said

I can't promise that I'll grow those wings
Or keep this tarnished halo shined
But I'll never betray your trust
Angel mine

    General CommentI too love this song. When i first got the CD, I played this song about twenty times in a row.

    I think what i love about it is not only the beautiful melody, but the message behind it, which i think is not too obscure. The song is about lasting love. When we first fall in love, we tend to idealize people. The man in the song thought she was an angel at first. As time passed, his view changed to become more realistic. Familiarity dulled the passion. Yet the man knows that sometimes the passion will reawaken ("the wings will grow back", "the halo still shines" and he'll feel about her as he once did at the start of their relationship). The woman in the song can't promise to always be angelic and perfect for the man. Age will take away some of her physical beauty. But she can promise to stand by him and be faithful.

    I think that this is the sort of love that we all desire in our hearts, and we would all be happier if we stopped chasing after the latest Hot Young Thing, and realized that there is a richness to sharing life with someone over a period of years. You don't treat your spouse like a car, and trade her (or him) in when the parts start getting old, and the engine doesn't reve as quickly as it used to.
