Angel In The Shadows

If you're lucky, you find someone like this in your life.

 

I've been awake too many nights
Waiting for sleep to overtake me
Carried my load down that long winding road
The one that I swore wouldn't break me
Time is going faster
Days slipping by
She's here, and still I don't know why

She my Angel in the Shadows
My hero on the run
Keeps me holding on
When all the hope is gone
I got caught up in the riptide
I was lost out at sea
She's the Angel in the Shadows for me

I spend my days with a smile on my face
Oh, I keep my friends amused
But late at night, all the memories crowd back in
Of people, using and misused
And yes, I've been forsaken
And yes, I've been alone
And looking for a light to guide me home

She my Angel in the Shadows
My hero on the run
Keeps me holding on
When all the hope is gone
I got caught up in the riptide
I was lost out at sea
She's the Angel in the Shadows for me

And if confusion follows me
And debt and worry keep me company
When nobody knows the pain inside of me
She knows

And when I think about it
The way things might have been
Mistakes made, again and again and again

She my Angel in the Shadows
My hero on the run
Keeps me holding on
When all the hope is gone
I got caught up in the riptide
I was lost out at sea
She's the Angel in the Shadows for me
