Billy Joe Shaver – When The Fallen Angels Fly lyrics

I have climbed so many mountains
Just to reach the other side
And I've near drowned myself in freedom
Just to feed my foolish pride

On my journey through the darkness
I have finally seen the light
I know no one's ever loved me
Like you're loving me tonight

There is something you must tell me,
You think I won't understand
How you found such worldy pleasures,
In the arms of other men

I would never try to judge you,
We have both been wrong and right
But I know no one's ever loved you
Like I'm loving you tonight

God will save His fallen angels,
And their broken wings He'll mend
When He draws their hearts together
And they learn to love again

All their sins will be forgiven
In the twinkle of an eye
All the saints rejoice in Heaven,
When the fallen angels fly

There's a story in the bible
About the eagle growing old
How it grows new sets of feathers,
Then becomes both young and strong

Then it spreads its mighty wing span
Out across the open sky
We will have the wings of eagles,
When the fallen angels fly

When the fallen angels fly,
When the fallen angels fly
We will have the wings of eagles
When the fallen angels fly
