Lyrics
No Angel

Creative Ventures Music, Inc. ASCAP

You stood alone
while things were crashing down, crashing down all around you.
The madness was erupting, erupting like a huge volcano.
Well, I'm no angel but I can see you could use some help.

I saw you wounded
Standing by the river, you were wounded and raw.
Caught up in a chaos, a chaos that wasn't your fault.
Now, I'm no angel but I'm here for your support.

Life's never fair, everybody knows.
Most of our mysteries go unsolved.
But sometimes it assaults your very soul
And all you ever wanted is not what you expected at all.

We get our chances.
We try to make the best, the best of what we are given.
We make mistakes, apologize and are forgiven.
Now I'm no angel but I'll bear witness to the truth.

Instrumental

Its been a long road
And there were times when I thought, thought you were going to break,
but through it all you never said it was all a big mistake.
Now I'm no angel but I'm going to help you celebrate.

Life's never fair, everybody knows.
Most of our mysteries go unsolved.
But sometimes it assaults your very soul
And all you ever wanted is not what you expected at all.
