The Angels Cry

Words and Music by Raccoon

as recorded on Loose In The City



Itís a clear, cool night and Iíd like to take the long way home

And I feel all right - I donít want to walk alone

Maybe we can bring some - Maybe we can sing some too

Maybe we can dream the night away


And the grass is high Ė Itís softer than the mattress in my room

We can find a place where we can lie - Somewhere in the shadow of the moon

We can kiss there - We can talk some too

We can dream the night away


But the angels cry - You swear that theyíre callin' out your name

You get up to say goodbye - I know itíll never be this way again

And I will miss you - And you may miss me too

And it makes me wonder why


Oh the years they go by - Everyday I wish I could come home

And every time I think of you I cry - I pray you call me on the phone

Cuz Iím too proud to - You may be too proud too

And it makes me wonder why


The road is long - It gets a little longer everyday

I wish my life was just a song - So I could give this song away

And the angels cried - I swear now that theyíre callin' out my name

I climb the rocks on mountain high - I stand there screaming in the rain


I reach out to you - I pray you reach out too

And then I fly, I fly - I will never land again

I fly, I fly - I will never land again
