Angel on a Wire

Angel on a wire, close to a ghost
Both too sad to be saved
Stranger on the train tracks in the rain
Lost in puddles with waves

I found something new when I walked out on you
There’s a light every dawn I’ve been missing
The days got so dark that I prayed for a spark
There’s a girl in my dreams I’ve been kissing

Find me a home to call as my own
Find me a hand to hold
Find me a heart as cold as I’ve known
And light me a fire in your soul

Smoke escaping lips, cold winter hands
Grasp one last cigarette
Steam beneath a sky that’s gonna’ cry
Blue eyes I won’t forget

I found something new when I walked out on you
There’s a light every dawn I’ve been missing
The days got so dark that I prayed for a spark
There’s a girl in my dreams I’ve been kissing

Find me a home to call as my own
Find me a hand to hold
Find me a heart as cold as I’ve known
And light me a fire in your soul

She rips my heart out of my chest
Please burn to the ground all the rest
Two hearts all alone in the ash
One rises to run from the mess
