Lyrics

Fighting with Angels
There came a time
Your name was the first word on my lips as I arose
Groggy and half-asleep,
morning light not yet arrived.
There came a time
When all my time with you was like a whispered prayer,
Unformed but no less fervent.
On hearing it, it sounded like a sigh.
If I’d known I’d feel such joy,
Would I have bended sooner.
Could I stop fighting and let go, just let go?
I’ve been fighting with angels
How could I help but lose?
Their gifts lie scattered all around.
I’m hurting and confused.
I’ve been fighting with angels, fighting with angels.
You came and stayed.
Sweeping out the shadows when you took my hand,
Holding it gently.
I knew I’d never be afraid again.
If I’d known I’d feel such joy,
Would I have bended sooner?
Could I stop fighting and let go,
Just let go?
I’ve been fighting with angels.
How could I help but lose?
Their gifts lie scattered all around,
I’m hurting and confused.
I’ve been fighting with angels,
Fighting with angels.
