about

once you glimpse her, everything is changed

lyrics

ANGEL
Angel looked down from the sky to the ground
She could see what was going on
Whole lot of people were rocking and a-reeling
Shaking in the body zone
Something asleep inside her deep
Woke to want that groove
So she clothed her soul in an old silk robe
and descended down the stairway
into the world

Her brand new body so strangely rearranged
She could hardly feel the wings on her back
But the beat of the blood in her feet and the flood
Of the emotional heart-attack
Said she'd arrived and in holy grand style
And she thought her disguise was complete
But as she bent her knees to the groove that pleased
I saw her light shine
into the world
my angel!

Well I knew right away, what it was I can say
For the light fell from her like rain
And everyone she touched as she danced through the crush
Ceased to feel their pain
As she lent to the groove her inimical moves
I'd never felt so high
To serve the muse I never refuse
I pray she will stay
in the world
my angel!

Ray beam
Star light
Earth glow
Long night...
