Angel


I know exactly where you are;
I know exactly where you'll go,
where you come from, where you were--
know what you're thinking
even though you don't say it.

I know exactly what you've dreamt:
why does the best part always
slip through your fingers?
See, I know you, I hold you in my arms,
and you do not even know my name.

I am an angel sent onto your path,
just an angel, thinking softly of you.
You don't need to know how my heart relies on you--
it would just make you miss me someday.

I know all the games you play;
I know when you lie and who you've just loved.
Here in this world you often feel so alone,
but, believe me, you do not need to be.

I am an angel sent onto your path,
just an angel, thinking softly of you.
You don't need to know how my heart relies on you--
it would just make you miss me someday.

Angels don't have any worries;
angels keep themselves well hidden.
Angels will watch over you,
for angels have no need of sleep.
