Bangles – Angels Don't Fall In Love lyrics

I saw you today
She's lovely you're such a heavenly pair
You hope and you pray
Someday she'll take you all the way there.

You should know better, darling (you should know)
When push comes to shove
Angels don't fall in love.

You stand at the gate (and there you wait)
Hoping to gain admission
How long are you willing to wait (and wait and wait)
She won't give permission tonight.

You should know better, darling (you should know)
When push comes to shove
Angels don't fall in love, no no no.

You've got your higher aims
Got your ambitions
You think you're spiritual
And on some mission.

Well, I can see it
When I look in your eyes
When you think of love
You think of compromise.

It's no big disgrace
There's no loss of grace
The trouble is there's always
Someone there to take your place.

And the trouble is
You don't believe that it's true
When the sun goes down
There's something left for you.

The trouble is
I see you missing so much (trouble is)
While you're knocking on all the wrong doors (trouble is)
Looking for some angel's touch (trouble is).

You think she's (trouble is)
Everything you're dreaming of (trouble is)
The trouble is (trouble is)
Those angels never fall in love (trouble is).

(Trouble is...trouble is)
(Trouble is...trouble is).
