An angel wrapped herself in cloth
The blackened silk of this world
And like the flame to the moth
I brought her to me and I hurled
Her soft body to the ground
And now all I hear is the sound
Of an angel crying
Of an angel dying

Thought maybe everything was okay again
That just perhaps I was a person again
Then I sat back and remembered when
I broke your heart

One day so long ago
You called me an angel
But I guess that now I know
Exactly what kind of angel
The Fallen

I wanted to be your Light
But instead I cast you into Darkness
All your dreams and love took flight
And I burned it all to ashes

An angel wrapped herself in cloth
The blackened silk of this world
And like the flame to the moth
I brought her to me and I hurled
Her soft body to the ground
And now all I hear is the sound
Of an angel crying
Of an angel dying

You were the angel not me
But all that I could ever see
That is something I could never be
Because of all my blindness

Your love seemed apart from me
You shared it with many openly
And so I thought it could not be
All you claimed it was

I could not understand

So I thought you would move on
That you would not mourn me long
But since I've been gone
You have been singing a new song
The song of an angel dying

I'll do what I can
It's not enough
I'll try to help
It's worthless stuff
I'll give you my hand
When it should be my heart
I won't pretend
I wish we could start over

I never wanted to fall from Grace
I never wanted to have to see that look on your face
I never wanted all of this
I never wanted you to miss
A fallen angel

And even as I speak these words
That I hope will be heard
I cannot do you justice
I cannot stop the tears

An angel wrapped herself in cloth
The blackened silk of this world
And like the flame to the moth
I brought her to me and I hurled
Her soft body to the ground
And no all I hear is the sound
Of an angel crying
Of an angel dying
