I'm no angel, and neither are you
But you'd be ashamed of me if only you knew
All the terrible things I've done
To you and to me and to everyone

I'm no angel, I'm close with my sin
But I've made the worst mistake and I've made it again
And I promised myself I'd stop
That I would change, but clearly I'm not

So ask the cards to tell me where to go
They didn't know
So ask my heart to tell me where to go
It answered low

I'm no angel, and neither are you
But I saw the devil at my doorway and I let him through
And he sat in my dining room
Took my hands, took my sight, and my memory too

I'm no angel, forget what you've heard
But my love flies to you like a sick humming bird
And it's lured away by red
And laid on the ground from the sugar it's fed

So ask the cards to tell me where to go
They didn't know
So ask my heart to tell me where to go
It answered low

So I said I'm no angel. Do you understand?
She said you're the one and that's how it is
And you can't be blamed for the evil that is
And you cannot be troubled with things that have been
And you need not worry for me
My life is what it should be
Just forgiving you

My life is what it should be
My life is what it should be
My life is what it should be
Just forgiving you

    General CommentI hear it as "So I asked..." not just "So ask.."
    Either way, the power and emotion behind that part gives me chills everytime.

    This song is such a poetic voice of regret. It is absolutely stunning.
