Angel of The Night

” Angel of the night “

 

An empty rockin’ chair

knitting basket by the table

a setting sun casting shadows on

old hands no longer able

a faded silhouette she starts to cry

and just outside her window

cars are passing by

only time will console her.

Across the way in a bar room

at a table in the corner

he nods his head at the barman

as the waitress take his order

an ashtray full of cigarettes disguise

the constant state of fear

that he holds inside

he could end up his life all alone here.

 

Sweet angel of the night

if you can hear my call

oh won’t you spread your wings

please try to help us all

help us to understand

that if we give a hand

then we might save a fall.

Sweet angel of the night

if you can hear my plea

then be our guiding light

so all the world can see

can see that if we start

to open up our hearts

then there’s a chance for peace.

 

The streets outside are so cold now

we behave like total strangers

we hang our heads never smiling

acting like we’re all in danger

pretending we can take it all in stride

caught up in the struggle

trying to survive

we’re so lost, there’s no hope

there’s no joy here…

 

Sweet angel of the night

if you can hear my call

oh won’t you spread your wings

please try to help us all

help us to understand

that if we give a hand

then we might save a fall.

Sweet angel of the night

if you can hear my plea

then be our guiding light

so all the world can see

can see that if we start

to open up our hearts

then there’s a chance for peace.
