Verse 1

An angel with the heart of a child

Was wandering alone in the wild,

When a vicious serpent caught her eye,

And the thunder screamed through the dark sky.

Verse 2

She halted in her path for a while,

Gave the virulent beast a sweet smile,

Hoping to tame it with affection,

Kind words, loving arms, and warm actions.

Chorus

All she received in return from him was a fatal bite,

And when she sat surrounded by the reapers of the night,

She refused to give up on her sweet life without a fight.

Verse 3

So she ripped off her wings with her hands,

Buried her heart in the breast of sand,

And chose to haunt the same wilderness,

With grim shadows darkening her face.

Verse 4

The serpent watched her and lay in wait,

For the day she'd succumb to her fate,

But to his greatest astonishment,

The hourglass turned, on and one she went.

Chorus

Finally she grew a new pair of wings for flight,

Cause when she sat surrounded by the reapers of the night,

She refused to give up on her sweet life without a fight.

Bridge

Evil can only touch you with its cold lips,

But the goodness in your heart is yours to keep,

And you must never give up on it.

Chorus

And so she went on her way, doing what was right,

And when she sat surrounded by the reapers of the night,

She refused to give up on her sweet life without a fight.
