A sinking feeling has been lurking at your door
That it is real you can't deny, you must ignore

Sing like the angel that you know you'll never be
And try to pin the blame on me

The heart that beats inside your chest, the awful need
It burns with holy fire, righteousness, and greed

Sing like the angel that you know you'll never be
And try to pin the blame on me

Like the angel that you know you'll never be
But you still try and pin the blame on me

    General Commentmy dad had an idea that this song might be about divorce or something. the bit about 'sing like the angel that you know you'll never be' could be singing as in telling on someone...kind of thing, like lies she might be telling in court. could be :). to designedtohide, song a and song b are two different versions of this song which are both slightly different and use different lyrics. this song was an a capella version off a cd called "the unaccompanied voice" which is a compilation of different artists off ptl's label singing a capella songs (i think) that my dad bought, and thats how i got into ptl...i love this song!

    General Commentmy dad bought 'the unaccompanied voice' cd and that's how i heard ptl! love this song. my dad thought it might be about divorce...like a court case where 'sing' refers to telling on someone, ie telling lies in court. to designedtohide - song a is a kind of upbeat version of this song and has different lyrics, the 'i'm tired of losing when you sing.....do you really think you're winning?' kind of adds to the whole court case divorce idea. song b is the quiet piano version which is basically the same as breadwinner you but has a little added bit at the end - to staygold, my computer says song b, the piano one is from "residence (UK)" album. don't know for sure. as for breadwinner you, designedtohide, this is an a capella version of the song from "the unaccompanied voice" which is, as far as i understand it, a compilation of the artists from ptl's label singing a capella songs. staygold - what was that blackberry song?!!!! Crazy! xxx
