"I fought the angels" as written by and Emma Pollock Alun Woodward....
I fought the angels here today
Hope my defeat will end this play
Everybody knows that
I only have myself to blame
Softly softly wins the game

Trust
I'll try to learn again
My words are seldom for a friend

Knew at the time that they came out
Wish I could have them disallowed
Everybody knows that
We say things we do not mean
Everybody jnows that
We say things that are unclean

Trust
I'll try to learn again
My words are seldom for a friend

Run conversations in my head
Write my own scripts to dish the dread
And if I speak out loud
I will have to change the rules
For speaking's out of bounds
If it's practiced by a fool

Trust
I'll try to learn again
My words are seldom for a friend
So lend me an ear to lean upon
To speak to and learn my speaking from

    General CommentI love this song soooo much! I think it's talking about having arguments and blurting stuff out but all i know for sure is that it's a great song.

    General Commentmentions talking, words we speak, the meaning of our words etc. alot throughout the song. I think she's talking about living in misery due to her own selfish ways-How she hurt people who loved her with harmful words she said without thinking. And how she finally realized what she did and is willing to change her ways. Basically a song about admitting your mistakes and learning how to change. Beautiful song!!
