ANGEL
Melissa Etheridge


I met an angel on the street this morning

Maybe it was late last night

You see I haven't been to sleep

There's music in my feet

And I haven't stopped to think about it twice

Oh yeah



Well you wouldn't recognize her this angel

Oh for she's not the celestial type

She had no pair of wings

I don't even think she sings

And the words that she spoke were no heavenly hype



Somehow she knew that I'd been thinking about you

Somehow she knew the city held no light

Somehow she knew that I just needed a reason

To tell you the things that I feel in the night

Oh let it show

If you love them then let them know

Oh let it show

If you love them then let them know



Well that was all that she said she had for me

All that she'd been sent down to say

So she straightened up her rags

And she walked off with her bags

Back into her city jail

Away oh yeah



So this is how I've come to you this morning

To tell you of a secret in my heart

I'll bring it to your feet

I'll dance it in the street

You know I love you

I love you, I love you

Oh Oh



Somehow she knew that I'd been thinking about you

Somehow she knew the city held no light

Somehow she knew that I just needed a reason

To tell you the things that I feel in the night

Oh let it show

If you love them then let them know

Oh let it show

If you love them then let them know

Oh let it show

I met an angel yeah

So let it show
