She comes home to me after a hard night's work,
Falls in my arms and sleeps like a bird,
Startled, wakes up like she don't know me,
Cocks back her fist like she's going to slug me,
Who are you anyway?
And what are you doing to me?

Chorus : She's an Angel,
She can't see it
She's got wings,
She can't feel 'em
She's an Angel
She can't see it
But she's flying above me every day
Every day of my life.

Bright diamond eyes with daggers beneath them,
She carries the chains of a million decisions,
They weren't even hers to begin with anyway,
But she carries them all
All the people around her
You never even notice that she's very very tired.

    General CommentAnother sweet love song, that only ghost of the robot can pull off. Basicaly i think this song is about a girl who is always around to help out people with their problems and what not, and does so much for people she is like an angel, but she cant see it. And this is a guys way of telling her how much of an angel she actually is

    General CommentThis song, I feel is about a girl who has changed this guy's life and she doesn't even realize how wonderful she really is. It's kinda sweet, in the Ghost of the Robot kinda way.

    General CommentWhen I went to the "Your Funny Valentine" Event last February, James mentioned that this is his niece's favourite song. He also mentioned that it was about a porn star he was dating at the time.
