Do you believe in heaven above
Do you believe in love
Don't tell a lie don't be false and untrue
It all comes back to you

Open fire!
On my burning heart
I've never been lucky in love
My defences are down
A kiss or a frown
I can't survive on my own

If a girl walks in and carves her name in my heart
I'll turn and run away
Everyday we've all been led astray
It's hard to be lucky in love

It gets in your eyes
It's making you cry
Don't know what to do
Don't know what to do
You're looking for love
Calling heaven above

Send me an angel
Send me an angel
Right now, right now

Empty dreams can only dissapoint
In a room behind your smile
But don't give up,
Don't give up
You can be lucky in love

It gets in your eyes
It's making you cry
Don't know what to do
Don't know what to do
You're looking for love
Calling heaven above

Send me an angel
Send me an angel
Right now, right now.

    denison marrs covers it too. it's on their 7" and it will be on their new album, Then is the New Now, coming out August 20th on Floodgate Records. you can find it anywhere. warner brothers is doing their distro. oh, and i think it's a much better cover than the thrice one.

    DJ Keoki and Paul Oakenfold apparently did Trance and Club remixes of it as well, and damn it sounds good... The Scorpions did a song by the same name tho im not sure if its the same song...

    I remember this song was the song they played during the 'dancing on bikes' scene in "Rad", the best bike movie ever.

    Zeromancer, a German Industrial group, did an awesome cover of this too, which I thoroughly recommend
