"How Could An Angel Break My Heart" as written by Kenneth Edmonds and Toni Braxton....
I heard he sang a lullaby
I heard he sang it from his heart
When I found out thought I would die
Because that lullaby was mine
I heard he sealed it with a kiss
He gently kissed her cherry lips
I found that so hard to believe
Because his kiss belonged to me

How could an angel break my heart
Why didn't he catch my falling star
I wish I didn't wish so hard
Maybe I wished our love apart
How could an angel break my heart

I heard her face was white as rain
Soft as a rose that blooms in May
He keeps her picture in a frame
And when he sleeps he calls her name
I wonder if she makes him smile
The way he used to smile at me
I hope she doesn't make him laugh
Because his laugh belongs to me

How could an angel break my heart
Why didn't he catch may falling star
I wish I didn't wish so hard
Maybe I wished our love apart
How could an angel break my heart

Oh my soul is dying, it's crying
I'm trying to understand
Please help me

How could an angel break my heart
Why didn't he catch my falling star
I wish I didn't wish so hard
Maybe I wished our love apart
How could an angel break my heart

    General CommentI love the version with Babyface singing in the background of the verse:

    I heard her face was white as clay
    Soft as a rose that blooms in May
    He keeps her picture in a frame
    And when he sleeps he calls her name

    It shows the two sides to the relationship and that maybe if the situation were different or if these two could talk, they'd still see that they still love each other even if they have to work to pick up the broken pieces.

    This song makes me so sad. I can relate so much it hurts to listen sometimes.

    General CommentIt is "I heard her face was white as rain", and to quiet grey eyes, you are wrong too, it is "I wonder if she makes him smile". This is a gorgeous song, I think everyone can relate to this song. Well her side of the story anyway. This song makes me cry.

    General CommentThe song speaks for itself, she's involved with someone that was attached. "I wish I didn't wish so hard, maybe I wished our love apart," she's trying to get him to be only hers so much that it pushed him away. The dude's a playa, uses the same song and smiles for every girl.

    General CommentThis song holds such a strong sentiment to me.
    The man i love and thought i would be with forever and ever is getting married this weekend.
    this song i can relate to completely-
    i used to call him angel, i have been described to be a falling star, he is marrying a girl who has a face as white as snow and cherry lips.Go figure, i didnt tell him how i felt and now i am going to lose him.. but what a beautiful song... wow
